1998 was a great year for Hip Hop, there's was so much balance as far as what type of records were coming out and all coasts (West, East, South) were all represented in some form, It was also the year we got the groundbreaking solo album from Lauryn Hill "The Miseducation..." It was a dope album that gave us not only hit records to bang in the clubs and on the radio but there was substance. There's been alot of speculation over the last few years as to if The Fugees would ever reunite, when it looked like it could happen back in 2005, all plans fell thru and Wyclef Jean, Pras, and Lauryn Hill went there seperate ways again. Although Wyclef has had hits on the radio since, nothing could compare to the group as a whole. Well we may not get a full Fugees reunion but it looks like Lauryn Hill is wrapping production on her new album properly titled "The Return" With Nicki Minaj holding it down pretty tough for female MC's, one has to wonder if the public is still checking for Lauryn. Nonetheless "The Return" is slated for a late 2012 release and she is planning to have a huge listening party for the album sometime next month. Obviously alot has changed in the last 14 years, but I would hope that people haven't forgot and the long awaited sophomore project won't go overlooked!
