2010 saw the return of Lauryn Hill from the abyss. Granted, it was to mixed reviews, but at least we found out L-Boogie still had a musical bone in her body. For those who may not be in the known, Ms. Hill will be embarking on a nationwide (somewhat) tour beginning January 1.
To test the waters, she had a pre-tour show in Brooklyn at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. I’m willing to bet anything that is possible will go down at her shows, which is why the news of her being three hours late didn’t surprise me. However, if I was one of those who paid $75 for a ticket, I might feel otherwise. Once the ball got rolling though everything appeared fine and all in attendance likely walked away with a smile.
Head over to PleaseDontStare for more videos. After the jump, expect to see the full list of dates to see if Lauryn will miseducate you in a nearby city.
