Everything is Everything

Lauryn Hill • hip-hop

It's been 20 years since Lauryn Hill's ground-breaking neo-soul inflected hip-hop recording, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill dropped. Since then, Hill's once for-sure-going-to-be-hot career has moved in fits and jumps as the artist behind such megahits like her rendition of “Killing Me Softly,” “Doo-Wop” and “Ex-Factor” wrestled with fame, responsibility and fans that blew both hot and cold as she faced media attention for erratic behavior and prison for tax evasion. This year's tour has been good to Hill though, and proves she's still able to pack big houses with her big sound. Lauryn Hill appears at Isleta Amphitheater on Monday, Sept. 24 at 6:30pm. Hip soul artist Talib Kweli and rapper Tierra Whack are also on the bill. Tickets range in price from $20 to $131 and this is an all-ages (13+) event.
