Robert Glasper Says Lauryn Hill Stole All the Music For "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill"
Three-time Grammy-winning Jazz producer Robert Glasper recently did an interview with Houston’s 97.9.
They asked him if he had ever worked with difficult artists. He was more than happy to sell out Lauryn Hill.
Glasper explained that in 2008 Hill was doing a one-off 20-minute show for half a million dollars and she brought him on to play the piano. Then things went awry.
Glasper said the band — which he described as a "super band"– was doing a great job, and Hill has a history of firing and punishing bands for no reason.
Glasper went on to say Hill was the worst kind of diva. Then he dropped this nugget about her one album, 1998's The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, which she is credited with writing and producing with very little help.
Glasper went on to argue that Hill hasn't been able to repeat the success of Miseducation because it wasn't really her project in the first place.
