this why lauryn hasnt released a album

Though The Miseducation was largely a collaborative work between Hill and a group of musicians known as New Ark (Vada Nobles, Rasheem Pugh, Tejumold and Johari Newton), there was “label pressure to do the Prince thing,” wherein all tracks would be credited as “written and produced by” the artist with little outside help. While recording the album, when Hill was asked about providing contracts or documentation to the musicians, she replied, “We all love each other. This ain’t about documents. This is blessed.”

In 1998, New Ark filed a fifty-page lawsuit against Hill, her management, and her record label, stating that Hill “used their songs and production skills but failed to properly credit them for the work.” The musicians claimed that they either wrote or produced 13 of 14 tracks on Miseducation , despite the liner notes of the album claiming that it was “produced, written, arranged and performed by Lauryn Hill.” New Ark requested partial writing credits and monetary reimbursement.[12] The suit was settled out of court in February 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.” . In a 2005 Interview, Lauryn responded saying ” I am a Songwriter, Producer and a Musician and that I gave people too much credit that they didn’t truly deserve. I can do it again, because I am a Artist thats speaks from my heart and from my mind. If people benefit off my new music to come then so be it, I will only make music to give information to my own children”.

As of 2009, Hill has released only one album after Miseducation - 2001’s MTV Unplugged No. 2.0 - which sold a fraction of Miseducation’s numbers.

the big winner in all of this is rohan marley.

n*gga had her sprung when she was on top of the music world. gave her 6 kids, ate good off her and didn't even wife her up.

soon as the well ran dry he ran off with a younger brazilian chick, who he wasted no time proposing to.

That's how much his deal worth regardless. Meaning that Lauryn deal is also worth 1 million which means she probably got like 500k up front. Keef still won

she probably didn't want to sign any type of deal, but was forced too. due to the fact that shes facing some time. bi*ch !!!! pay your fu*king bills..... i just hate it when celebs think their higher then regular people and don't have to deal with the same sh*t.

she was fantastic with wyclef and pras as the fuggees, and her solo album was hot as well, but let's face it. she has been out of this game for quite some time. i would consider her a hasbeen to some extent.

If i recall didnt she pull some sh*t at another country when she was supposed to perform and she just said " fu*k IT , not in the mood ". Some great artist especially how she treats her fans.....

You where wrong. Just admit it and move on. Lauryn's "earnings" will be one million. Excluding the money she would make from concerts, merchandising(T-Shirts and bobble headds and stuff), endorsing products and etc... If she decides to go that lane.

 The Bully said:
hold up, didn't she say she didnt want white folks to buy her music?

she needs them to buy her albums now, or else sony gon drop her
She didn't say that.

Speak with facts! That was a claim made by some jounalist


 bigshock said:
3 pages in and we just not even mention she should have just paid her taxes?


I actually said that!

Learn to read and not just speak!

Well played music industry.. Well played

They just say back and waited til her back was against the wall and signed her to a deal worth the same amount as Kreayshawn

12-15 years ago Lauryn Hill could have laughed in the face of a $1 million dollar deal..

Sony just bought low and are bout to sell high..
the question should be why is her back against the wall..wtf has she done of substance to earn 700k in one yr and a million in another...she just thought she was above paying... her royalty check game is on point she can pay taxes
