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

Thug, drug dealer wife; consequence cut like a knife/Then we learned that only Jah and God can protect/You know the story, housing projects is purgatory/So, teach the youths they got more rights than Miranda/Tell ’em this whole shit is propaganda. – The Fugees “Don’t Cry Dry Your Eyes”

Following the release of the Fugees’ record-breaking album, The Score, the NJ trio dropped an EP titled Bootleg Versions. This gem was on it. While the song was supposed to be a weirdly remixed version of their Bob Marley cover “No Woman No Cry” with Marley’s family, Lauryn used her time on the mic to spit social consciousness. This verse was a product of that, flipping metaphors about Miranda Rights and a whole lot of other things. Dope.
