Lauryn Hill’s seminal album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill turns 20 next month. To celebrate, she’s bringing an anniversary tour across the country joined by none other than hip hop legend and long-term collaborator Nas.
“This album chronicled an intimate piece of my young existence,” says Hill. “It was the summation of most, if not all, of my most hopeful and positive emotions experienced to that date. I loved and believed deeply in my community’s ability to both love and heal itself provided it received the right amount of support and encouragement.
“Our world today, both complex and changing, is in need of the balance between moral fortitude and cathartic expression. I hope the love and energy that permeated this work can continue to inspire change with love and optimism at the helm.”
The now platinum-selling album is loaded with well-loved singles including ‘Doo Wop (That Thing)’ and ‘Everything is Everything’.
