The Great Return of Lauryn Hill (by J. Tinsley)

Posted by Mr. Put On on May 25, 2010

If I had a dollar for every time someone stated “I wish Lauryn Hill would come back,” I’d be one rich man. After years of wishing and near abandonment of the idea, it seems as Miss Lauryn will finally be re-emerging this year at the “Rock The Bells” tour – according to Urb.

The official press conference isn’t until, but we’re ready to call this one like FOX News. Hip-hop enigma Lauryn Hill will be headlining this year’s Rock The Bells tour. The ex-Fugees songstress will be performing her classic solo album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, as part of a complete album format that has become an increasingly popular way for legendary acts to draw attention to current tours. Also rumored to be performing a full-length at RTB2010 is A Tribe Called Quest. Perhaps they’ll join Ms. Hill in a rendition of Roberta Flack’s “Killing Me Softly,” The Fugees’ most infamous hit, which sampled ATCQ’s “Bonita Applebum.”

Since we’re on the topic of L-Boogie, a special 35th birthday is wished to her today. Even though she is the one celebrating the milestone, it’s safe to say the entire industry is thanking her for the gift of returning to music. Temporary or not.
