The American singer Lauryn Hill has in an open letter responded to allegations that a number of songs from her iconic hiphopalbum “The Miseducation or Lauryn Hill,” be pirated. That writes the British newspaper The Guardian. The 43-year-old singer travels currently around for the twentieth verjaardagstournee of this album.
Jazz pianist and music producer Robert Glasper, who in 2008 briefly worked with Hill, accuses the artist, among others, of her musicians badly, treated. So would they be very fickle and her band members sometimes do not pay because they do not do a good job.
According to Hill, there is nothing to the allegations. They say they don’t understand why a musician with quality principles, as well as Robert Glasper, who believes that music has stolen from his friends, but he also wanted to work for her. “Musicians can me give some suggestions, but they may not be for me to write,” says Hill in an essay on the blogging platforms Medium.com. “These are my numbers. I need musicians because they have a masterful way of their musical instrument.”
In 2001, it came to a court case between Lauryn Hill and some of the musicians that she worked with. The same year, both parties have the matter settled amicably.
