Lauryn Hill Released From Prison

Lauryn Hill

Lauryn Hill is a free woman once again. The Fugees frontwoman was released from federal prison after serving her 3-month sentence for tax evasion.

According to TMZ, the 38-year-old singer was released early Friday morning from the minimum security Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut.

Hill has been behind bars since July 8 after failing to pay taxes on more than $1.8 million in income she earned between 2005 and 2007.

On the eve of her release, she released a new song entitled “Consumerism,” inspired by her recent challenges.

Earlier this year, she launched a joint label with Sony ATV, Obverse Creation Music, and is readying a new body of work, Letters From Exile.

“I felt the need to discuss the underlying socio-political, cultural paradigm as I saw it,” she wrote in an open letter to her fans.

    @Chicago, what the???? I will f-ck your mother for that, you useless imbecile. F@gs like you love to talk about respect but when its the moment to give Nicki the respect she deserves as one of the most outstanding rappers of this generation y’all don’t say sh!t. Hypocrites, you’re just chatty nobodies.

    Lauryn, your last two songs weren’t good, please give us something better. We all know you can do better.

    Shame to the modern dustballs, twerkers and followers who throw dirt on Ms Lauryn Hill’s name. Lauryn would change your life if you just gave her ONE listen.

    To see bashing of her financial status is confirmation but you new slaves are here to stay. Pray for the kids.

    So glad Lauryn is out. Happier she’s working on a body of work.
