Today is such a glorious day in hip-hop, a happy day if you will. At 4AM this morning female vocalist/rapper/poet/spoken word artist Lauryn Hill was released from the federal correctional institution that housed her for the last 3 months following her conviction on the grounds of tax evasion. In celebration Ms.Hill drops off a fresh record entitled “Consumerism”, which is now available for purchase on iTunes. Letters From Exile is on the way!

“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 audience, or their audience finds them, like water seeking it’s level.”
