Description

The Trio Fugees, consisting of Lauryn Hill, Pras and Wyclef Jean, is currently one of the most creative musicians of black music. "The Score" was the album of 1996 with the best selling single of the year ("Killing Me Softly") as well as the hits "No Woman, No Cry", "Ready Or Not" and "Fu-Gee-La".

"By 1996, the world had seen many hip-hop blockbusters. Some of these albums were pop, others were gangsta albums, and some were labeled with the slightly condescending label "socially conscious. Few, if any, checked all three boxes, and none was more successful - artistically or commercially - than Fugees' second album
The instrumentation is as for rock fans, a fairly obvious Bob Marley cover for potheads and college kids, and enough soulful vocals from figurehead Lauryn Hill to middle-aged listeners still undecided about hip-hop. Clef, Hill and third member Pras Michael - the man responsible for getting the whole thing rolling in the late 80s - were militant and melodic, fighters for change and followers of pop music" (billboard)
