Ms. Lauryn Hill

Ms. Lauryn Hill with OSHUM at The VETS in Providence RI

When Lauryn Hill broke away from hip-hop trio The Fugees in 1998—then without the honorific Ms.—she seemed ready to take over the world with a soaring voice and what was then a novel ability to rap and sing with equal power. Hill did take over the world for a few months, winning five Grammys in one year and leaving enough of a lasting impression that “Whatever happened to Lauryn Hill?” articles have proliferated the article ever since, often around the time somebody like Cardi B or Drake has a hit interpolating the “care for me care for me” bit of Ms. Hill’s epic ballad “Ex Factor”. The reclusive performer puts out a song every now and again (one appeared on the Queen & Slim soundtrack late last year) and tours occasionally, despite being erratic and often very late to arrive. That might explain why so many tickets are still available. Her last local performance, Brown Spring Weekend 2014, was apparently great, though. Afrofuturist soul duo OSHUN opens.
