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.
