Oh Lauryn! Uncle Sam Does Not Play About His $

1284289-lauryn-hill-aretha-tribute-617-409If I ruled the world…I would free Lauryn Hill from her 3-month prison sentence  that is due to commence this summer.  Hill, the Grammy award-winning hip-hop artist was sentenced on charges of tax evasion for roughly $1.8 million.  Before her sentencing, she had paid more than $970,000 to try and satisfy the tax liabilities.  Unfortunately, it didn’t quite resolve the issue and did not prevent  the sentencing from occurring.

The former Fugees member had a very high-profile career and then became a recluse of sorts, not blessing us with her musical talents for over a decade and then releasing  her 2010 track “Repercussions”.  Her most recent release  “Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)” dropped this past Friday (May 3) from a new recording deal that she was “forced” to make in order to satisfy financial obligations related to the tax debt she acquired.

Unfortunately, the deal didn’t seem to impact an impending sentence that will have her sitting still for a few months.  She will also have 3 months of house arrest to contend with following prison, and then a 9 month supervised probation stint.  Hopefully, she will use the time productively and come out strong with material for her album that is due to be released later this year.  Good luck, Lauryn!  We are eager for all of this to be behind you, and even more eager to hear some dope tracks!
