No matter what Lauryn Hill decided to do after she gave us The Miseducation, never forget that she already gave us The Miseducation

Talib Kweli Greene (via ktresane)

Agreed! I think The Miseducation was the best album of the mid to late 90s…

It’s one of the singular features of our little social-technological moment that people all over the world whom we otherwise would never even be aware of can effortlessly impinge upon our minds and lives and desktops.
