Lauryn Hill New Music
Singer Lauryn Hill has released new music entitled Neurotic Society. She recently signed a one million dollar contract with Sony and has been trying to work out her tax woes to avoid jail time. She posted a link to the new music on her Tumblr page with the following note to her fans.
Here is a link to a piece that I was ‘required’ to release immediately, by virtue of the impending legal deadline. I love being able to reach people directly, but in an ideal scenario, I would not have to rush the release of new music… but the message is still there. In light of Wednesday’s tragic loss (of former label mate Chris Kelly), I am even more pressed to YELL this to a multitude that may not understand the cost of allowing today’s unhealthy paradigms to remain unchecked!
What do you think of the new music?
Update: Lauryn Hill was sentenced to 3 months in jail for tax invasion by the residing judge in the case. After her release, she will be confined to months house arrest and followed nine months supervised release. Hill's attorney says she has paid the majority of the debt. She has to report to jail by July 8, 2013.
Lauryn Hill told the judge in open court that she was put into a system she didn't know the nature of and had an "economic paradigm" imposed on her. She says her ordeal is like slavery adding she has sold more than 50 million albums and now she's paying a tax debts……Thoughts????
