Lauryn Hill Just Released From Prison; Already Dropping New Music



Lauryn Hill is a free woman. HipHollywood has confirmed that the singer has been released from federal prison after serving her 3-month sentence for tax evasion.

According to the Bureau of Prisons, Hill was released early Friday morning from the minimum security Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut. Hill checked into the slammer back on July 8 after failing to pay taxes on more than $1.8 million in income.

To celebrate her release, Ms. Hill released a new song titled “Consumerism.” An entry written by Hill on her Tumblr page explains the track:

“Consumerism is part of some material I was trying to finish before I had to come in. We did our best to eek out a mix via verbal and emailed direction, thanks to the crew of surrogate ears on the other side. Letters From Exile is material written from a certain space, in a certain place. I felt the need to discuss the underlying socio-political, cultural paradigm as I saw it. I haven’t been able to watch the news too much recently, so I’m not hip on everything going on. But inspiration of this sort is a kind of news in and of itself, and often times contains an urgency that precedes what happens. I couldn’t imagine it not being relevant. Messages like these I imagine find their audience, or their audience finds them, like water seeking its level.”

From Gangsta To Gospel … Snoop Dogg Shuts Down Critics Of His Spiritual Album



Who says a gangsta rapper can’t drop a gospel album — apparently, the critics.

Snoop Dogg released his spiritual effort, Bible Of Love, today and unfortunately some folks just don’t understand why. Thankfully, we talked to Uncle Snoop and he let the haters know they won’t be dulling his shine.

“My spirit is in the right place,” Snoop proclaimed, “so for those who have backlash or something to say, their spirit ain’t right.” But Unc didn’t stop there, he went on a preached a word right quick … “I thought the Bible said Jesus was in the streets mixing it up with the real, bringing the real back to the fold.” Yep, yep, that’s exactly right!

But just because he has a gospel album doesn’t mean Snoop ain’t still street. “I come from the hood and I come from the church so they can’t out do me,” he reminded us.

Do you agree with The Doggfather’s message?

Bible Of Love is available now!
