Lauryn's eagerly-anticipated solo opus has been a long time coming. Critics, who were first privy to Hill's mellifluous, sometimes gritty alto on the Fugees' 1993 debut, Blunted on Reality, suggested she break free of the constraints of the group and go solo. The critics obviously missed the point. Undaunted, Hill stuck to her principles, which included fierce loyalty to the group, and went on to co-write, co-produce and serve as featured performer on the Fugees' sophomore offering, The Score. The rest, so the adage goes, is history. The album went on to rack up sales of over 17 million units, making the Fugees the biggest-selling rap group of all time. With fellow cohorts, Prakazrel "Pras" Michel and Wyclef Jean, Lauryn also garnered two 1996 Grammy awards: Best Rap Album for The Score and Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal for Lauryn's poignant cover of the Roberta Flack classic "Killing Me Softly."

That single became the hip-hop anthem of 1996 and firmly insuring the Fugees' success in the upper echelons of pop music's colorful history.
