VIDEO: Lauryn Hill – Fuse Hip Hop Shop Interview

Touré conducts a too short interview with L-Boogie at Rock the Bells for Fuse’s Hip-Hop Shop show. While the public definitely wants to hear more new music from Ms. Hill to the point of deification, I’m not going to deny that I found her MTV Unplugged No. 2.0 album to be a glorious dud. Nevertheless, L’s ability to defecate on a wack MC’s microphones and sing tenderly with equal aplomb makes you root for her. So here’s hoping she has plenty “to share,” like she mentioned in the interview, and that it equates to excellent music in the near future. [Via 2DopeBoyz]

Foxy Brown Got Jailhouse Perks

Call me Inga.

Call me Inga.

foxyjail1Consider this yet another female rapper FAIL. Well, not if you you’re Foxy Brown, who the NY Post (not the most reliable rag, I know) alleges got jailhouse perks that included a curtain over her cell bars for privacy and unlimited (nice!) phone and TV time. Oh yeah, an XXL Magazine photo shoot too. I wonder what Officer Ricky would think?

You got two prominent female MC’s in the bing now (Remy Ma, Da Brat) and another one whose parole should almost be done (Lil Kim). Luckily Lauryn Hill hasn’t committed any crimes—save for morality due to the whole baby mama of a married Marley thing. But as far as music, Ms. Hill seems to be more a lost cause with every day that goes by. Let’s do better, ladies. [Spotted at Gothamist]
