Lauryn Hill was released from prison early Friday morning after serving a 90-day long sentence for tax evasion, and to celebrate the Grammy Award winning artist dropped a new single entitled, Consumerism.
In the song, Hill rhymes frantically through a laundry list of social problems or "isms," over a rough, disoriented beat, a long stretch away from her 'Killing Me Softly' days. She takes aim at terrorism, sexism, and hedonism just to name a few.
One thing that a prison term will do for anyone is give them time to think, read and write. For someone as creative and talented as Lauryn Hill, I wouldn't be surprised to here more new music coming down the pipeline soon and hopefully a new album dropping. Although we miss the old Lauryn, we are anxiously anticipating what life and experience has done for her music.
Listen to the new track below.
What do you think of the new track?
