Working in partnership with Global Citizen and Live Nation, the New Jersey trio will begin an international tour on November 2.

Ms. Lauryn Hill, Praz Michel, and Wyclef Jean will reunite to celebrate the 25th anniversary of The Score, an album that solidified them as elite in the eyes of many to this day.

Gina Rodriguez got promptly gathered by Black Twitter after she was seeing vigorously rapping the N-word while getting her makeup done in the video to the tune of the Fugees’ “Ready Or Not” track. After dropping an initial apology that came off weak to some, the Jane The Virgin actress followed up with an obviously […]

Pras is revisiting how rappers are watched by the law. He has announced he is working on a television show centered around Hip-Hop cops.

No, it’s not the mid-90s and that headline is very much correct. The Fugees are back, this after Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex debuted a record featuring all three of the band members.

Fans of Lauryn Hill are no doubt excited for her return to performing, and it appears she’s back to form after opening her short, multi-city tour in New York Wednesday (Nov. 27) night. After serving a three-month sentence for tax evasion, Hill didn’t miss a beat as she knocked off the ring rust.

Aswad Ayinde, an award-winning video director who worked with the Fugees, was sentenced to 40 years in prison in 2010 for molesting one of his daughters and impregnating her when she became a teenager. Ayinde was slammed with an additional 50 year sentence last week, and was confronted in court by his now-adult daughter.

Hip-Hop fans are a nostalgic bunch. Despite many of our favorite groups effectively calling it quits more than 10 years ago, we still hold out hopes for reunion albums that will capture they’re past greatness.

Aswad Ayinde, a Paterson, N.J. man on trial for charges stemming from impregnating three of his five daughters, believed that he was a prophet, according to court testimony. Beverly Ayinde, the ex-wife of the 54-year-old, was shocked to learn that her 12-year-old daughter was with child, and even more disturbed to learn who the father was.

Considering Wyclef Jean’s Yéle Haiti issues and Lauren Hill’s tax troubles, it was only a matter of time before Pras got in on the legal struggle, too. The third member of the Fugees is suing a director for $70,000+ in money the rapper/producer says he put down a few years ago out of his own pocket […]

Chris Lighty is gone but not forgotten. The music industry executive shot himself outside of his Bronx apartment last month, reportedly over the fall of his marriage, and financial issues. As friend and manager to many notable figures in entertainment, Lighty is credited with cultivating the careers of the likes of 50 Cent, Mariah Carey […]

When Lauryn Hill hit the music scene, first as a member of the Fugees and later as a solo artist, she changed the climate for female artists. Rapping and singing—and doing both well—is not a gift that a lot of people possess. But the pressure being placed on such a high musical pedestal may have […]
