“The magazine says the girl should have went solo
The guys should stop rapping, vanish like Menudo”

After shining in film on Sister Act 2 and all over The Fugees’ sophomore record, rumors were swirling about Lauryn Hill leaving the group for a solo career. She would eventually release The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill to wild success, but I’ve always wondered what a solo album with more of a hip-hop focus would sound like from her. So, years ago, I edited out Wyclef and Pras’ verses from The Score on a whim. The result was a nifty 26-minute mix that’s kept me away from the retail version since.

Being that Lauryn is celebrating her birthday today, I thought it’d be a good time to share the mix with everyone. And if someone at Columbia is still trying to find a way to make new money on Lauryn’s music, well, you’re welcome.
