Albums that Influenced—Lauryn Hill: The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill

For a change in pace, we decided that the 4 Sonic Collective members should select albums from a randomly selected genre for everyones next pick. Hip Hop was chosen and for the last pick of this round member Scott Gregory selected Lauryn Hill: The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.

Lauryn Hill is an amazing vocalist. She can sing. She can rap. She can do it all. This album really set the tome of what was to come for hip hop. WE know now just how powerful hip hop and rap is now, but back when this was released in the late 90s some though hip hop might just be a phase, or just more droning type pop music. We all very much enjoyed this album and it does very much stand the test of time. Lauryn’s story is interesting and full of misinformation and tabloid chatter. However, we didn’t focus on all of that and just enjoyed her music. We wish she did more, but choosing to be a mother seems like a helluva good reason to focus on family and health. Fame may not be all it is cracked up to be, but Lauryn Hill is the real deal.

In this podcast you will learn the following about this album and much more:

  • Why was this Lauryn Hill’s only solo album when it was so successful?
  • Who the song “I used to love him.” is about.
  • Which member used to DJ at a popular nightclub on Electric Avenue in Calgary back in the day.

We hope you enjoyed this hip hop round and this last amazing pick. Bring on the next round!
