10 Reasons Lauryn Hill Changed Music Forever
Here are just a couple reasons why Lauryn Hill is one of the greatest MCs.
From the gate Lauryn's fashion sense defied expectations and norms. Looking and feeling womanly in more loose fitting clothing became a way of life.
Although music today is a bit different, Lauryn won five Grammy-Awards off of only solo album to ever be released "The Mis-Education of Lauryn Hill."
Ripping and Rhyming
Under most musical circumstances L. Boogie's considered to be an MC instead of a singer, but she's great at both. In your mind is L. Boogie really an MC?
Newsweek once named Lauryn "the most powerful new [voices] in rap." Not bad for a young lady from East Orange, NJ.
Been in Formation
Lauryn became the first woman to be nominated in ten Grammy-Award categories in a single year.
First Sighting of #BlackGirlMagic
She was one of the first sights of #BlackGirlMagic. Lauryn owned her beauty, womanhood, rhymed with the best of the boys all the while staying 'feminine.'
Woke Up This Mornin'
Lauryn's conscious rhymes had us all woke before we were even told by MC's like Kendrick that we were going to be 'alright.'
Young and In Charge
In 1999 Lauryn became the youngest female to be included by Ebony Magazine in their Most Influential Black Americans list.
To Thy Self Be True
Through her music we learned that all forms of love were okay and may take time.
Can't Stop, Won't Stop
We keep playing Hill's debut album and calling it a classic almost 20 years after its release.
