Everyone is a buzz about the possible return of Lauryn Hill. At Rock
the Bells this weekend Lauryn Hill produce every major Black celebrity
on stage from Jay-Z to Beyonce to Alicia Keys to Swiss Beatz, MJB, and
Chris Rock. Everyone wants Lauryn Hill to re-claim her thrown as the
queen of fusion of R&B and Hip-Hop. But she has been M.I.A. for years.
Lauryn Hill has not produce a major studio album since 1998. That a
LONG DAMN TIME! But we love Lauryn Hill and we want her back. With so
much star support do you think Lauryn Hill can reclaim what she once
had.

Lets look at her accomplishments:

At the 1999 Grammy Awards, Hill was nominated 10 times, becoming the
first woman ever to be nominated 10 times in one year: Hill won five
Grammys including Album of the Year (beating Madonna’s critically
acclaimed Ray of Light and Shania Twain’s bestselling Come on Over),
Best R&B Album, Best R&B Song, Best Female R&B Vocal Performance, and
Best New Artist. Hill set a new record in the industry, becoming the
first woman to win five Grammys in one night. Between 1998 and 1999,
Hill earned $25 million from record sales and touring.[5]
Hill became a national media icon, as magazines ranging from Time to
Esquire to Teen People vied to put her on the cover.

In the late 1990s, Hill was noted by some as a humanitarian. In 1996
she received an Essence Award for work which has included the 1996
founding of the Refugee Project, an outreach organization that
supports a two-week overnight camp for at-risk youth, and for
supporting well-building projects in Kenya and Uganda, as well as for
staging a rap concert in Harlem to promote voter registration. In 1999
Hill received three awards at the 30th Annual NAACP Image Awards. In
1999 Ebony named her one of “100+ Most Influential Black Americans”.
She was named with Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. and others among the
“10 For Tomorrow,” in the EBONY 2000: Special Millennium Issue.

Then she has been GHOST for years. She has occasionally popped up here
and there but nothing major. We through she was going to re-unite with
the Fugees when they reunited at the BET Awards in 2005. But that
didn’t happen. So almost 12 years later can Lauryn Hill mount a
comeback? A lot has changed in the industry but Lauryn is Legendary
and if anyone can mount a comeback it’s her. All she needs to do is
call up Oprah, set up a TV special interview, tell her story, and get
some music out to the public. Oprah helped to get Whitney Houston back
to the public and we need Oprah to work her magic again and do the
same for Lauryn Hill.
