Lauryn Hills Makes Her Return

lauryn-hill.jpgThe Fugees’ Lauryn Hill will debut her new song, “Lose Myself,” on the Surf’s Up (Music From the Motion Picture) soundtrack. Surf’s Up is an animated action-comedy that takes a look behind the world of competitive surfing. The film will be released nationwide on Friday, June 8 and the soundtrack will be released on Tuesday, June 5. “We are thrilled to be a part of the return of Ms. Lauryn Hill,” says Liza Richardson, music supervisor for Surf’s Up. “Apparently, she related to [the] story — reaching the top, checking out for awhile, doing some soul searching and re-emerging with joy — and wrote and recorded a real celebratory summer jam session. We’re glad to have Lauryn back where she belongs.”

In related news, Hill has announced she will host two rare concerts in California this summer. On June 27, she will perform a set at Oakland’s Paramount Theatre and on June 29, she will hit the stage at Pala’s Palomar Starlight Theater. Lauryn is heading to the UK this July to perform three gigs as well.

  • Wizdom

    I guess that’s why she has all those grammy awards.

  • so_iconic

    It’s really cool how this precious talent just gave up the world of fame and glory to appreciate the true life…though it will always baffle me that she didnt keep making and releasing quality material over the years… whatever the mysterious circumstances that she shy’d away from the spotlight we all know lauryn is the queen of soul

  • Chozen

  • Cuban Link

    how ironic that Im actually listening to Ready Or Not by the Fugees right now.

  • stoneyisland

    L-Boogie as a MC is without a doubt one of the top 10 period. Ever. Her word play and delivery is better then 99% of these so called cats out now. And I think it goes without question she is the best female Mc ever, sorry Latifah, sorry Bahamdia, sorry Lyte. L-Boogie for life. One

  • Blaksteel

    Been missing you Ms.Hill and glad to hear she’s returning.One of the few female emcees I have ever spent money on for thier CD’s.The Queen and MC Lyte are the others and she’s the best I have heard to this date.Lil Kim and Foxy did thier thing but what Ms.Hill brought to the table will stand the test on time.Please revisit the Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,burn down and let Ms.Hill take you thier if you don’t believe me.

  • john cochran

    She’s like Nas and Illmatic. She can never top or come close to her first joint. While Nas still tries and comes a few feet away, she chose to just give up, now I really dont even care any more.

  • J Millz

    @New Money

    You better recognize one of the greats in hip-hop. She actually has talent. Why do people always think that older MCs should hang it up like they ain’t good any more. She’s better than most of these “rappers” today. If anything she’s underrated. New Money, either your a dumb cat who doesn’t know shit about hip hop or you just tryin’ to be funny. In either case you should shut the fuck up!



  • too lil, too got damn late!

    too little too late. what a waste of fucking talen. i mean, cool, take a break, be a mommy and all that, but damn near 10 years, wtf? i huess those residual checks aint kickin’ it no more when them kids get older and need more bread, i mean whar wlse are we supposed to think. you have a Gid given talent, don’t want to use it and share it with the world, and now that your back we supposed to jump for joy, get the fuck outta here with that bullshit! anyways, i hope that her shit is good, so i can download that shit like everyone else! you missed out on them platinum days, shit good luck on sellin a mil or two and eat off that.

    she coulda been bigger than beyonce without akk the flash and all these other wack singers out now. but on the real she was on that neo- soul vibe way back, before other artists capitilized on it. anyway i do gotta respect her for stepping down after such a big album. now if she comes out people will just think she needs dough or something. u tell me
