Pras Says Fugees Reunion Is Dead, Blames Lauryn Hill

pras_mitchel.jpgIt has been 11 years since The Fugees released their classic LP, The Score. Since then, hip-hop fans have eagerly awaited a reunion. But according to Pras, all hopes of the trio reforming are officially dead. “We went in the studio and recorded a couple of records that were incredible,” Pras told Billboard.com. “But to put it nicely, it’s dead. Me and Clef, we on the same page, but Lauryn [Hill] is in her zone, and I’m fed up with that shit. Here she is, blessed with a gift, with the opportunity to rock and give and she’s running on some bullshit? I’m a fan of Lauryn’s but I can’t respect that.”

Even though The Fugees reunion may never come to fruition, that doesn’t mean Pras is giving up on his musical ambitions. Pras will release his new solo album, Experience, later this year. According to Billboard.com, a video for the single, “Pop Life,” was recently shot in Hong Kong, Dubai, Macao and Abu Dhabi.

    People care about the Fugees. Once again some young niggas have no respect for greatness. Who knows if it goes Plat. Who really cares!? We ain’t seein a dime from their record sales, so why is anyone concerned? The only reason we should carea bout albulm sells is cause they might get dropped from their label if they don’t do well. That leaves the fans without that choice in music. It’s ALL about making good music. They (FUGEES) all have enough cash to put food on the table. And unlike some of these fly by night crackhead 80′s babies, (some not all) they still have a legitimate fan base so they would have moved units. Oh yeah Lauryn aka baby momma, Quit fuckin up!!!!!

  • southtexasindisbitch

    they old and lame

  • LethalLyricsBorn

    ms hill smokin crack? damn that was my wifey.. any ways .. there will never be a reunion. and pras needs to stop playin the typical role of a black man instead of complainin about lauryn, reach out and help the sista!

    P.S. Pras will never be hot cuz no one likes him.

    DAMN!!! dis is some b.s. on another level Lauryn plz get ur shit 2getha cuz we need u in da game

    Pras only hit was ghetto superstar right? n Mya made da track hott lol

  • Dr Flav

    Another hit and the Fugees will be back like they left something. I dont honor kids opinions on music, they ears cant be trusted most times.

  • http://www.yahoo.com Streets Is Watchin

    yall cats chill this is album is comin out the week before detox i told yall

  • Cuban Link

    Damn, Lauryn, get it toghether girl.I still love her, arguably one of the most talented singers ever, but damn.

    and btw, if the Fugees came back and released some shit on “Ready or Not” levels, they would go platinum in a few weeks.Thats what todays music is missing right now, something real everyone can relate too.

  • That Guy

    fugees are irrelevant today. they was good then but not now.

    Fuck that monkey BITCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • jdstl

    yo lauren is done just keep listening to the score and miseducation. one

  • Vicious Seiger

    Let the fugees rest in peace. Lauryn was great but after the marriage, the firestorm over how much of The Miseducation was truly produced and inspired by her, not to mention the pressures of fame and the lame ASS BET Reunion where her voice wasn’t holding up – I can’t lie I kind of don’t want to see her again. It’s like watching the fall of Whitney all over again but twice as depressing. Do the Fugees have any relevance today? I don’t know but then again has any member of the Fugees done ANYTHING lately worth talking about? No. The Fugees are Dead let the issue of a reunion rest in peace with their short but sweet legacy.

  • 5yrslockeddown

    —-you aint never lied! Lauryn was the shit, now that broad has taken the Bobby & Whitney, Flavor Flav route…

  • CLARITY

    When a female musician gets some steady cock, gets married or pregnant, and a little weed in them, ITS FUCKIN OVER!
    Whitney Houston, Lauryn Hill, Britney Spears etc etc etc.
    Female musicians plus pregnancy and weed equals the END.

  • Yun

    lol Snitch why you takin shots at Wyclef, The Carnival was a dope album..Pras on the other hand..

    Too many smart dumb niggas on this site!

  • HOLY ROLLER

    I wanna know when Lauryn picked up that pipe and thought “Yeah this is a great idea.” Dumbass

  • janeywb

    lauren has definitel lost her mind. a friend of mine is a musician, and he was playing in her band. And she would come to the rehearsals and not say a word. She literally wrote down every word on a piece of paper and had someone read it.
    I dont know, but she needs serious help.

  • WHYSDOM

    BYGGZ IS RIGHT JUST FOR THEM TAKING SO LONG THE INTERNET WILL HAVE IT A WEEK BEFORE ITS OUT ANYWAYS. I RESPECT ARTISTS WHO RESPECT THERE FANS…NOT ONES WHO GIVE UP WHEN THE LIMELIGHT GETS TOO HOT…..

  • tumi

    The Fugees are still relevant the score is the best selling hip hop album in music history, still to date no hip hop album can touch the score in terms of lyrical content and production. As for Lauryn what is going on with her it seems like her association with the Marleys is more of a curse than anything else. I would still want to see their comeback the music industry still needs more artists like them who cares about these current low class rappers they are such a disgrace to the black communities

  • Fugeefan

    Pras was actually my favorite of the three in thescore. I thought he sounded dope but since that Ghetto Superstar hit, he seems to try to be somebody else. I still believe in him since he sounded OK on Haven’t Found but I gotta admit all his other tracks really suck. I hope he realises his own potential and tries to sound like Pras of the Fugees instead of Pras of Guerrilla or whatever Pras, I want the original one please…

  • KnowledgeDrop

    Pras is dope as hell. He’s gonna be featuring on the new Swami album EQUALIZE as well, they are a sick ass alternative electro hip hop group from the UK. Supposedly their producer DJ Swami is producing some of Pras’ new album too…should be fire.

  • Soul Digga

    I feel the same way about the Fugees getting back as I do about a ATCQ reunion, it’ll happen but everything takes time.

  • Soul Digga

    A Fugees reunion is just like ATCQ reunion,it’ll happen when the time is right.
