Lauryn Hill - "Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)"

Lauryn Hill Performs In London

In case you missed it - Lauryn Hill recently signed a deal with Sony that should help her avoid prison time for tax evasion, of which she was accused about a year ago. According to the deal, she'll found a new label called Observe Creation Music, and record five new songs, followed by a new album. The first of those new songs is this one, "Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)," and if you thought she might cut down on some of her sharply critical take-no-shit attitude as a result of this whole thing, you're really, really wrong. Over a deceptively delicate beat, Ms. Hill delivers an intense and brutal but stunningly poetic series of social critiques. Check it out.
