ABOUT THE ALBUM

On August 25th – this musical gift would hit the record store shelves. 422,000 units moved in just the first-week sales.  The first female artist ever with a debut album at #1 on Billboard. She would hold the record for the longest-charting female rapper ever for 21 years, and yet there’s still more.

She would win 5 Grammys – the first hip-hop artist to take the coveted Album of the Year. After receiving a record-setting ten nominations, she was in rarified air.  Ms. Lauryn Hill had arrived, hitting her apex in stride.

She would eventually go Diamond twice over – having sold over 20 million copies worldwide. An album for the ages – period, point, exclamation. 

One of the all-time greatest – Lauryn HIll’s Miseducation
