The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill is by far one of the staples in not only greatest albums of all time, but a great album that merges both R&B and Hip-Hop.

On February 24, 1999, Lauryn Hill took home 5/10 Grammys at the 41st Annual Award Show which included: Album of the Year, Best New Artist, Best R&B Song, Best R&B Vocal Performance, and Best R&B Album. Her having 10 nominations made her the only women to have been nominated for that many in one night.

Here is her performance of ‘Zion’ with Carlos Santana:

Lauryn Hill was known for her vocals in rhymes as 1/3 of the Fugees. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill was released on August 25, 1998 with the mega hit, Doo-Wop (That Thing) leading the way. The album also held hit singles, ‘Ex-Factor,’ and ‘Everything is Everything.’ The album has garnered dozens of awards and in 2003 was placed at #313 on Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of all time.

Lauryn Hill might have left fans empty handed without more music, but this album still lives on and has become a staple in music history.
