The Friday Five

The Friday FIve
Earlier this week, one of hip hop’s most lauded albums ever, Lauryn Hill’s ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill”, turned 15.  Released back in August of ’98, ‘Miseducation’ was a monumental success, going on to clean house at that year’s Grammy Awards by earning Ms. Hill five awards.  What many, and in particular young women from all walks, found within that album was Lauryn’s eloquent diary of personal struggle, triumphs, motherhood, and spirituality,  told within songs that at the same time pushed the boundaries of hip hop.  I take a look back at one of hip hop’s most important albums ever in this week’s Friday Five by selecting my favorite joints from ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’.

Reach loves the Lakers, breakfast, the sound of a Fender Rhodes, and rapping along word for word to Wu Tang's "Triumph." If you're looking for him, he's probably out getting chicken.
