1. On the “rules” of interacting with Lauryn Hill in the studio
"I'm pissed. My shit is bugging out. I think I'm doing too much. Lol. But here is my story of L Boogie. Her manager at the time Mikkel hit me about working with Ms. Hill. This was around the time Murder Inc was on fire. And I was giving away hit after hit. So Mikkel gives me instructions on what to do when Ms. Hill comes to the studio.
She says 1. Only address her as Ms. Hill. Not lauryn. Not L boogie. Just Ms. Hill. And 2. By no means are you to touch her. She doesn't like any contact because she is fearful of germs or what not. I tell Mikkel all good. So I'm sitting in Sony studios. And Mikkel walks in and says Ms. Hill is about to come in to the studio. And she reminds of what she said.
So in walks Lauryn Hill. Y'all know what I did next. Haha. I immediately grabbed and hugged with mad love and was like L Boogie. I fucking love you. You are the illest. And kept embracing her. I back up to see the biggest smile on L Boogie's face. Mikkel was like oh my god. So scared. But it all turned out great.
Me and L Boogie say and talked all fucking night. She played me song after song. Singing live. Just her and her guitar. Each song was crazy. All mostly about relationships and being hurt. But we bonded that night. Every time I see my L Boogie after that. It is always massive love. I love her to death. And as an artist. I think she is an ICON. her talent is in paralleled in this music biz. She chose to have kids and raise them over this industry.
But that doesn't mean she isn't the illest or that she isn't an icon. If anyone knows her and is reading or seeing this. Let her know IG loves her and thinks she is the best of the best. My Doll Face!! #visionary"
