Twilight Concert Series: Ms. Lauryn Hill Staff Pick

When: Thu., July 10, 7 p.m. 2014
Price: $5
Emcee and neo-soul singer Ms. Lauryn Hill—the opening headliner of this summer’s Twilight Concert Series—has released only one album since her days in ’90s rap trio The Fugees, but she reached more people with that one album than many musicians reach with five. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill—her 1998 debut and only solo album—is regarded as one of hip-hop’s true masterpieces, as well as a testament to Hill’s soul-baring honesty and relatable, down-to-earth poetry, with classics like “That Thing” and “Everything Is Everything.” The fact that her personal life has been turbulent these past few years hasn’t stopped many prominent artists (including Adele) from citing her as an influence, and hasn’t wiped away the legacy of The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill as one of the albums that propelled rap into the mainstream. Thundercat is also on the bill. (Kolbie Stonehocker, City Weekly)
