Lauryn Hill Hosts Fugees Reunion on Philadelphia Roots Trip: Watch

by admin

Ms. Lauryn Hill staged a surprise reunion for the Fugees during her solo concert at Philadelphia’s Roots Picnic on Saturday, reuniting the hip-hop trio for the first time since their 2021 comeback tour was postponed and ultimately cancelled.

The group reconvened at the end of the New Jersey rapper’s stacked set, which included most of her winning 1998 album, The Miseducation by Lauryn Hill. After her fan-favorite cover of Frankie Valli’s “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” Hill introduced her longtime bandmates, Wyclef Jean and Brass Michel, by declaring, “Those are my brothers!”

The six-song mini-set closed her performance and included the title track from her 1996 album The result Plus certified classics like “How Many Mics,” “Zealots,” “Ready or Not,” and “Killing Me Softly.” They conclude with the self-referential anthem, “Fu-Gee-La”.

Despite the long-awaited resurgence of the sexy trio, their comeback may prove short-lived given that Brass Michel was found guilty in late April of his involvement in a billion-dollar Malaysian money laundering scheme. The Fugees founding member is currently awaiting sentencing but could face up to 20 years in prison.

Meanwhile, Lauryn still has two solo live dates left in June, as well as an appearance at Australia’s Promiseland festival in October.
