Lauryn Hill – Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)


laurenhill2012[1]

For those of you that haven’t heard yet, Lauryn Hill ran into some legal issues regarding tax evasion recently. After failing to file tax returns from 2005-2007 (ish), she was caught, and was ordered to pay $554,000, but she had only been able to pay about $50,000 of that.

Because of this she was set to have a sentencing hearing for failing to meet her obligations towards the end of April, where she could have received up to 3 years in prison. But her old label, Sony, decided to step in and pay the remaining balance – in exchange for Lauryn Hill to immediately begin releasing new music.

Here is her “compulsory mix” she was “required” to release immediately.

“Here is a link to a piece that I was ‘required’ to release immediately, by virtue of the impending legal deadline. I love being able to reach people directly, but in an ideal scenario, I would not have to rush the release of new music… but the message is still there. In light of Wednesday’s tragic loss (of former label mate Chris Kelly), I am even more pressed to YELL this to a multitude that may not understand the cost of allowing today’s unhealthy paradigms to remain unchecked!” – MLH
