Lauryn Hill Celebrates 20th Anniversary Of ‘Miseducation’ With Tour

Music News

In 1998, no one predicted that The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill would be her last solo offering. Even Kanye West wished that the New Jersey native would put her heart back in “rhyming,” but the length of her hiatus from the studio continued to grow.

Over the years, Lauryn Hill popped back into the spotlight with performances throughout North America. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill served as the bulk of her set list, but her live remixes of one-of-a-kind songs like “Doo-Wop (That Thing)” breathed new life into those melodies. Now, she plans to tour the album again, but this time it’ll be a 20th-anniversary celebration.

The album has stood the test of time since today’s popular artists continue to look to Hill’s soundscape for inspiration. Recently, Drake’s “Nice For What” single sampled Hill’s “Ex-Factor.” The album went on to rank high on publications’ top albums lists and featured production credits from Vada Nobles, Che Guevara, and Hill herself.
