Nobody puts on a show like Lauryn Hill. Well, maybe Bob Dylan. Both the Fugees’ all-star and the Bard seem utterly nonplused by the undying enthusiasm of their fanbases, and neither one likes to play their hits the way we expect them to. It’s especially hard for fans of Hill, since her solo discography contains exactly one studio album. Lucky for her, and for us, it’s 1998’s The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, a colossal alt-soul classic that still holds up after all these years. Nas and comedian Hannibal Burress are also on the bill. Wonder which one has to kill time while we’re waiting for the star to take the stage? Does it matter? We’ll wait, won’t we?
