Lauryn Hill Biography

Lauryn Hill, a native of South Orange, New Jersey, first came to the glory with the multitalented "Fugees". The first album, "Blunted On Reality" went unnoticed by the wide public; the real break-through came with the sophomore album, "The Score", that featured "Killing Me Softly". That album stills stays the worldwide top-selling rap album of all times (17 million units shipped). Lauryn Hill earned two Grammys (Best rap album and Best r'n'b performance by a duo or group) in 1996, gave birth to Zion (alleged father is Bob Marley's son), before releasing the self-written and self-produced solo album, "The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill", that topped Billboard charts the moment it came out.
