Seminal R&B icon Lauryn Hill has hit back at claims that she stole the music for her debut solo album, and that she mistreated her band members.

Following the disbandment of the Fugees back in 1997, singer Lauryn Hill decided to embark upon a solo career. In August of 1998, Hill released her sole studio album, The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill, to major critical acclaim. However, jazz musician Robert Glasper has now stated that Hill’s involvement in the record was not quite as it seems.

In an interview with Houston’s KBXX radio station earlier this month (via Pitchfork), Glasper claimed that Hill ‘stole’ the music heard on her album.

“OK, you steal music,” Robert Glasper stated, referring to Lauryn Hill. “Miseducation was made by great musicians and producers that I know, personally.”

“So you got a big hand off of music that you didn’t even write,” he added.

As Pitchfork notes, a group of musicians named New Ark took Lauryn Hill to court in 1998 noting that Hill “failed to properly credit them for the work”. The case was later settled out of court in 2001.

“She took the credit for making the classic album,” Glasper continued. “Those songs were written by other people, and they did not get their credit. She likes to take credit so she can become this super person. If you’re a super person and you’re that talented… do it!”
