Lauryn Hill Drops New Track Right Before Her Release from Prison

consumerismLauryn Hill’s Tumblr account was updated with new music and a message from the rapper//singer.  As you know, L Boogie has been incarcerated for the last 3 months due to tax evasion. On the eve of her release from prison, she gives the world new music.

TUMBLR UPDATE:

Consumerism is a track coming out on the eve of Ms. Hill’s release. She wanted to get this music out while she was incarcerated, as it is a product of the space she was in while she was going through some of the challenges she has been faced with recently.

“Consumerism is part of some material I was trying to finish before I had to come in. We did our best to eek out a mix via verbal and emailed direction, thanks to the crew of surrogate ears on the other side. Letters From Exile is material written from a certain space, in a certain place. I felt the need to discuss the underlying socio-political, cultural paradigm as I saw it. I haven’t been able to watch the news too much recently, so I’m not hip on everything going on. But inspiration of this sort is a kind of news in and of itself, and often times contains an urgency that precedes what happens. I couldn’t imagine it not being relevant. Messages like these I imagine find their , or their audience finds them, like water seeking it’s level.”

– Ms. Lauryn Hill
