Lauryn Hill Working with Kanye West on New LP

Published: 2005-01-26
The return of Lauryn Hill has been one of the longest awaited events in recent music history, and it looks like it could finally be happening in the near future. It's been reported that the hip hop queen has returned to the studio to work on the follow-up to her critically acclaimed solo debut 'The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill'. The record was released six and a half years ago, and fans have been waiting for a new studio album from Hill ever since.

Rumour has it that Kanye West has joined Hill in the recording studio, collaborating with the Grammy-winning singer on at least two tracks. The producer extraordinaire is on everyone's 'It List', and his debut album 'The College Dropout' appeared on many 2004 Year End lists.

Although Hill hasn't released a studio album in over half a decade, a live album called 'MTV Unplugged No. 2.0' was released in 2000. For those who aren't aware, the reason for the long span in between Hills' albums is a period of rumoured trouble in the singer/songwriter's personal life.

With promise of a new Lauryn Hill album comes wind of another Fugees album as well. Fall 2004 brought news that the trio had recently reunited for a show in Brooklyn, and that Pras, Hill, and Wyclef Jean had plans to work together once again. The Fugees' last album 'The Score' was released back in 1996.
