Lauryn Hill To Headline Rock The Bells?

I won’t front like I’m privy to any insider info but I think a little birdie mentioned this to me a few months ago. Me being me, I forgot like I always tend to do. Doesn’t matter because I was sworn to secrecy so I couldn’t share it…even if I remembered to. Anyways, it looks like Lauryn Hill will be taking the stage headlining @ Rock The Bells this summer, according to URB.

The official press conference isn’t until [sic], but we’re ready to call this one like FOX News. Hip-hop enigma Lauryn Hill will be headlining this year’s Rock The Bells tour. The ex-Fugees songstress will be performing her classic solo album, The Miseduction of Lauryn Hill, as part of a complete album format that has become an increasingly popular way for legendary acts to draw attention to current tours. Also rumored to be performing a full-length at RTB2010 is A Tribe Called Quest. Perhaps they’ll join Ms. Hill in a rendition of Roberta Flack’s “Killing Me Softly,” The Fugees’ most infamous hit, which sampled ATCQ’s “Bonita Applebum.”

URB spoke to representative of Rock The Bells who would not confirm…or deny the booking. The official Rock the Bells press conference takes place tonight at The Key Club in West Hollywood.

Looks like many prayers and please have been answered. I’m torn between leaving the question mark in the title until I see official word, meanwhile checking the tour stops and airfare to Chicago and NYC. Honestly, I’m hoping it’s Hip-Hop Lauryn and not the alternate, mystic versions who has made appearances in recent years. Still, some is better than none.

Damn, Dr. Dre. I’m giving you the mean side-eye right about now.

Update: According to the official press release, L-Boogie will be appearing as a “special guest.” Navigate to Guerilla Union’s site to check the full menu of artists slated to appear.
