Lauryn Hill Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

Lauryn Hill (created May 26, 1975) is an American singer–songwriter, rapper, producer, and performer. Raised in South Orange, New Jersey, Hill started singing along with her music-oriented family during her youth. In high school, Hill was approached by Pras Michel to begin a group, which his cousin Wyclef Jean shortly joined. In the latter record, Hill climbed to prominence along with her African American and Caribbean music sways, her rapping and singing, and a performance of the hit “Killing Me Softly”. Hill’s tumultuous intimate relationship with Jean led to the schism of the group in 1997 to concentrate on solo projects.

“The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” (1998) stays Hill’s only solo studio album. It received enormous critical acclaim, showcasing a representation of life and connections and finding a modern feminist voice together with the neo soul music genre. The record debuted at number one on the U.S. “Billboard” 200 and has sold about eight million copies there. It contained the singles “Doo Wop (That Thing)” (additionally a number one), “Ex Factor”, and “Everything Is Everything”.

Shortly later, Hill dropped out from the public eye, suffering in the pressures of celebrity and dissatisfied with the music business. Her last full length record, the newest-content live album “MTV Unplugged No. 2.0” (2001), sharply divided critics and didn’t sell nearly as well. Hill’s following action continues to be spotty; she’s sometimes released tunes and performed at music festivals. Her looks in concert happen to be inconsistent and occasionally caused crowd discontent; a reunion together with her former group failed to continue long. Although “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” focused mainly on love, Hill’s work together with the Fugees and recent repertoire continues to be greatly focused on societal injustice. It’s additionally concerned with racism and female empowerment, and she’s issued a number of public statements critical of pop culture and social associations. Hill has six kids, five of whom are with Rohan Marley, son of reggae icon Bob Marley.

1I wouldn't even hold my kids sometimes because I didn't want them to spit up on me when I was dressed for an awards show.
2I have a couple of all-time favorites: Donny Hathaway and Roberta Flack, Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell.
3I'm trying to open up my range and really sing more. With The Fugees initially, and even with 'Miseducation,' it was very hip-hop - always a singing over beats. I don't think people have really heard me sing out. So if I do record again, perhaps it will have an expanded context. Where people can hear a bit more.
4Let optimists rule the world.
5From the first time someone says, Who do you think you are? we learn how to repress.
6Over-commercialization and its resulting restrictions and limitations can be very damaging and distorting to the inherent nature of the individual. I did not deliberately abandon my fans, nor did I deliberately abandon any responsibilities.
7With The Fugees initially, and even with 'Miseducation', it was very hip-hop - always a singing over beats. I don't think people have really heard me sing out. So if I do record again, perhaps it will have an expanded context. Where people can hear a bit more.
8The danger I faced was not accepted as reasonable grounds for deferring my tax payments, as authorities, who despite being told all of this, still chose to pursue action against me, as opposed to finding an alternative solution.
9When I have a creative insight, there is a high. I think back in the day, I made music as much as I did because it made me feel so good. I think you could argue that there is a creative addiction - but, you know, the healthy kind.
10Being young and female in America, you watch a lot of T.V., and you grow up on false images of what love truly is. We think the man with the best rap will protect and save us, about it's not usually that way. Then you learn love is something deeper and purer in form.
11As musicians and artists, it's important we have an environment - and I guess when I say environment, I really mean the industry, that really nurtures these gifts. Oftentimes, the machine can overlook the need to take care of the people who produce the sounds that have a lot to do with the health and well-being of society.
12I don't need anybody to market or promote me. If people don't want to hear this music, then it's not for them. You cannot please everybody.
13Since those who believe they need a hero/celebrity outnumber the actual heroes/celebrities, people feel safe and comfortably justified in numbers, committing egregious crimes in the name of the greater social ego. Ironically diminishing their own true hero-celebrity nature in the process.
14When you're young and everything dramatic is exciting, you start to believe that hype that, in order to be an artist, you have to suffer. I've graduated from that school.
15I got into direct confrontation with everybody I love.
16Nobody's going to force me to do something against my will. What do I owe anybody that I should submit my will to them?
17I tried to manipulate and control people, and I harbored resentment. I wanted to be forgiven, but I wouldn't forgive others.
18We call ourselves creators and we just copy.
19To those supporters who were told that I abandoned them, that is untrue. I abandoned greed, corruption, and compromise, never you, and never the artistic gifts and abilities that sustained me.
20We don't want people to have expectations of us, but then we have expectations of everybody else.
21We have to make sure the music and the message and the words and all the elements come through in our songs and every time we appear in public.
22I think what people are attracted to about me, if anything, is my passion. People got exposed to my passion through music and song first.
23This life is a process of learning.
24I need to be surrounded by people as passionate and as dedicated as I am.
25Hip-Hop isn't just music, it is also a spiritual movement of the blacks! You can't just call Hip-Hop a trend!
26Everything we do should be a result of our gratitude for what God has done for us.
27People need to understand that the Lauryn Hill they were exposed to in the beginning was all that was allowed in that arena at the time. I had to step away for the sake of the machine. I was being way too compromised. I felt uncomfortable having to smile in someone's face when I really didn't like them or know them well enough to like.
28What was freely given to me, I freely give.
29I believe God will make a way.
30You don't know how much artists go through to make it look so easy. It's all in the practice.
31I never did anything I'm really ashamed of.
32The less I have, the freer I am to do whatever I want to do.
33Real religion is no religion at all.
34For the past several years, I have remained what others would consider underground. I did this in order to build a community of people, like-minded in their desire for freedom and the right to pursue their goals and lives without being manipulated and controlled by a media protected military industrial complex with a completely different agenda.
35I do support artists standing by their beliefs and walking with integrity. We have to find a better way to commercially exploit music while giving artists their proper respect. This cannot be done while taking their contributions for granted or trying to control the scope of their growth and power through threats and fear tactics.
36I don't know anybody that's not emotionally unstable or schizophrenic.
37When I was working, and when I was making substantial amounts of money, I always filed and paid my taxes. This only stopped, when it was necessary to withdraw from society, in order to guarantee the safety and well-being of myself and my family.
38That strong mother doesn't tell her cub, Son, stay weak so the wolves can get you. She says, Toughen up, this is reality we are living in.
39We can't plan life. All we can do is be available for it.
40Reality is easy. It's deception that's the hard work.
41Be honest, brutally honest. That is what's going to maintain relationships.
42I had to confront my fears and master my every demonic thought about inferiority, insecurity, or the fear of being black, young, and gifted in this Western culture.
43Consequence is no coincidence.
1May 6, 2013 - Convicted of tax evasion and sentenced to three months in prison.
2She had a son on July 23, 2011. The name of the baby and the name of the baby's father has not been revealed.
3Ranked #22 on VH1's 100 Sexiest Artists.
4Ranked #17 on VH1's 50 Greatest Hip Hop Artists along with The Fugees.
5Her former long-term partner Rohan is the son of Bob Marley and Janet Dunn-Hunt.
6Graduated from Columbia High School in Maplewood, New Jersey, which also produced actors Roy Scheider (Jaws), Elizabeth Shue (Leaving Las Vegas), Andrew Shue (Melrose Place), Zach Braff (Scrubs), and musician Max Weinberg (the E Street Band and Late Night with Conan O'Brien).
7Went to the same high school as Garden State (2004) director/actor, Zach Braff.
8Her second solo album, 'MTV Unplugged 2.0', an ambitious two-CD set released on May 7, 2002, was recorded live with just Hill on vocals and acoustic guitar. It contains all-new, original material, as well as in-between song banter, and was introduced as an installment of MTV2's 'Unplugged' series. Selling only 470,000 copies, it was a relative failure.
9In the video for her 'Everything is Everything' in the restaurant sequence when she is sitting down she is wearing a yellow top with the word 'Selah' on it which is the name of her second born child Selah Louise.
10Attended Columbia for a year.
11Broke singer/songwriter Carole King's previous record of four Grammy awards in one night. [February 1999]
12Has 5 children from her relationship with Rohan Marley: Zion David Marley (born August 3, 1997), Selah Louise Marley (born November 12, 1998), Joshua Omaru Marley (born January 26, 2002), John Nesta Marley (born 2003) and Sarah Marley (born 2008).
