Know Your Hip Hop Vol.2

Lauryn Hill is one the greatest musicians to ever live and this album proved it. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill dropped August 25, 1998 at #1 on the Billboard charts. This album earned her 11 grammy nominations and she won 5 including Best New Artist, Best R&B album and Album of the Year. This album is filled with soulful ballads with love, pain, hurt and rejoice and this album has the greastest break up song of all time, Ex Factor. This also showed that there is still a place for a strong black women in hip hop and they can have something to say. Even though Ms.Hill has been MIA lately making appearances here and there and a Fugee's reunion album have been rumored. Lauryn doesn't have to write another song the rest of her life, she has her masterpiece.
