Ms. Lauryn Hill releases a new song and I’ll give it to her, she didn’t front like she was releasing a gift to her fans or that she always wanted come back to world of trying to sell music. She breaks it down on her personal Tumblr (Which I didn’t even know existed) and explains that this is all because of her recent tax troubles with Uncle Sam:
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!
I’ll also keep it real and say that “Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)” will not be tearing up the radio. Yes, Ms. Hill rapping and dropping knowledge but this isn’t the L-Boogie from “Lost Ones”. Take a listen for yourself.
