The Fugees Member, Pras, Tells Real Reason Why Lauryn Stopped Making Music

The Fugees: (L-R) Wyclef Jean, Lauryn Hill, Pras

For the past few decades most of us, true Lauryn Hill fans, have been waiting for her to drop a new album and show these so called new-school singers/rappers out here how it’s really done. It’s been 19 years since she dropped her diamond (10 million) selling album, Mis-education of Lauryn Hill and we think it’s about time for a new one.

Well, we’ll probably just be waiting, according to Lauryn’s former Fugees group member, Pras. In a recent interview with Vlad TV, Pras broke down exactly why that wish may only be a dream and not reality. Check out what he said below…

“She just felt uninspired. I’m going to say this to you. Some people money is a driving force for them. For her, money isn’t a driving force for her. If she had a billion dollars, if she had one dollar she would’ve done it the exact same way….When she says she wasn’t…she’s been uninspired she means that. This is a woman who she has to feel inspired to create, and if she doesn’t feel inspired she’s not going to create. Because that’s what she gets her source of energy from. When we did ‘The Score’ we were inspired from what was happening. You talking Snoop, Pac, Jay, Biggie, Total; you had so much great sh*t happening that we were like we want to get in that game. Let’s bring something to the game. Let’s bring The refugee Fugees style to the table,” said Pras.

So in other words, since Lauryn Hill is bored with and uninspired by the current state of R&B and hip hop (understandably so), “that thing, that thing” that we want from her…she won’t be giving anytime soon, or probably ever. That was an “all so simple” summarization of a very complex artist and we’re glad Pras broke that down for us. However, we’re still rootin’ for you Lauryn and until you drop that next record, we’ll be out here lookin’ for you like this…
