Na this what happen to lauryn

The critics who have made Lauryn Hill's solo debut the most acclaimed release of 1998 have consistently praised the album for its vision and honesty in presenting one woman's view on life and love.

But now, on the eve of the Grammy season in which it is a sure contender, "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill" is being portrayed in a lawsuit filed by a group of musicians as something far different--a group project and a lesson in the unfairness of the music business.

The musicians, known collectively as New Ark, are suing Hill and her label in U.S. District Court in Newark, N.J., claiming they deserve a share of songwriting or production credit on 13 of the album's 14 songs--and, of course, a sizable chunk of the profits generated by the album, which has sold 2.4 million copies to date.

The 23-year-old Hill, who gained fame as a member of the Grammy-winning Fugees trio, said in a statement that the suit is "without any merit whatsoever." A spokesman for the singer added this week that Hill feels "deeply betrayed" by the New Ark group, who toiled on the Ruffhouse/Columbia Records release for months at a studio in Hill's South Orange, N.J., home.

The album credits say the album is "produced, written and arranged" by Hill, and she is also listed as executive producer on all the tracks. The New Ark members--Vada Nobles, Rasheem "Kilo" Pugh and twin brothers Johari and Tejumold Newton--are acknowledged several times for "additional production," "additional musical contribution" and "additional lyrical contribution" on some songs.

They claim, however, to be the primary songwriters on two tracks, "Nothing Really Matters" and "Everything Is Everything," and major contributors on six others. Full or partial production credit is also due to the team on five tracks, the suit claims. The musicians also claim to have made sizable, uncredited production contributions to "A Rose Is Still a Rose," a song Hill produced for Aretha Franklin's last album.

The dispute has been discussed by attorneys on both sides for months, but an impasse led to the federal lawsuit filing earlier this month.

Lawsuits are hardly a rarity in the realm of song credits--as one music publishing veteran remarked this week, "Where there's a hit, there's a writ"--but the suit against Hill is especially intriguing because she was viewed primarily as a vocalist before "Miseducation" won raves for her songwriting and production craft.




The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill was released 10 years ago this week and went on to sell more than 8 million copies, win five Grammys and earn a four-star review in Rolling Stone. Mary J. Blige hailed it as "one of the most incredible albums ever made" and the record influenced a generation of soul and hip-hop artists.

"Music is about to change," Hill told Rolling Stone's Touré for his 1999 cover story. "I think now people feel a little more comfortable playing with the parameters. Writing more intensely."

Miseducation's liner notes mostly credit Hill with producing, writing and arranging the entire album. It was, in fact, a huge group effort, as underlined by a lawsuit settled out of court in 2001 for a reported $5 million



New Ark’s lawyer, Peter C. Harvey, scoffed at Hill’s image as a prolific songwriter. “She is not a musician, she is not a producer…I dare say if you put Lauryn Hill in a studio alone, she couldn’t do it again.”



thats why there hasnt been a new lauryn hill album released

her 1st album was dope i will admit but they tried to portray it as she did it alone and she didnt

thats why she paid them 5 million

and there lawyer said he would like to see her do it again and she hasnt

Makes perfect sense, it was said already but i thought it was lies. She loses credibility in my book for that then. The album will still remain a classic but f**k her yo. real talk.

If she would've stayed on her grind she could've been the female equivalent of what Jay-z is today. but the b**ch wanted to shoot some kids out of her c*ck for some bum a.ss n*gga....typical black woman
^This. That Marley dude f**ked her head up something serious because i still dont understand.

Yes she was..

When she came out she was the female version of 2pac after he first album.. The messages in her music to her rap skills and acting skills you would think her an Pac were distant brother and sisters..

Anyone who says otherwise is a damn lie.. her impact was huge, and she had the ability to make songs that men and women could relate too.. not only could she sing, but she could rap with some of the best rappers out..

She got scared off by all the media attention, went away, probably did drugs, and didn't come back the same or with that same aura..When she went away for such a long time you would have thought she was dead.. And you know how you get overly appreciated when you are absent and the music you left behind was nothing short of greatness.. People want the OLD miseducation Hill back, anything less than that people will never be satisfied. It's almost like if B.I.G,Pac and Pun came back from the dead and started putting out music the standards of low rappers like Gucci Mane.. People would be pissed, because the bar is so high for them that they don't want them doing anything less than what was set previously.

A ok I guess jimi didnt lead himself to his demise
lol He died bc of an overdose on sleeping pills. If you wana compare that to Lauren Hill playing in the snow then be my guest, but that's about as many similarities as you'll find.

Jimi Hendrix changed music forever and is still considered the best guitar player ever, even after he's been dead for 40 years. Not to mention he was a chill motherf**ker who put on amazing live performances and released a huge library of music.

Lauren Hill made one Milli Vanilli style album, refuted the criticism and still hasn't done s**t since then. All while being a huge c*nt to her fans and everyone else.

Yet, you smoke her c*ck.
