25 Of Lauryn Hill’s Best Bars From ‘The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill’ And Beyond


On Sunday it will have been 15 years since Lauryn Hill dropped her solo debut album The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill. While the project displayed Hill’s incredible musical ambition and an advanced level of lyrical dexterity on a number of tracks, it was not the first time we heard L-Boogie spit bars with finesse. The female third of The Fugees was gripping mics since her teen years, and evolved into one of hip-hop’s top lyricists over a long period of time. To celebrate the 15 of Lauryn Hill’s brainchild, XXL has unearthed some of Hill’s best bars to date. Some songs were hit singles; others were obscure freestyles. Regardless of where they were placed, it’s important to note that Hill’s got skills.

    This is a great list with a lot of tracks that people don’t know about, however I wish the writer was a bit more brave and addressed the Unplugged album where she killed every rapper in the game with just two songs: “Freedom Time” and “Mystery of Iniquity”. There’s so many jewels in those songs, it would take up all 25 posts.

    She’s so dope. No doubt Manifest is about Wyclef too. He played her pretty dirty.
