Ms. Lauryn Hill Releases First Song Since 2010 To Avoid Going To Jail [Listen]

Nothing screams a hit like a song which an artist didn’t want to see the light of day. Lauryn Hill has released her first song since 2010 in order to narrowly avoid jail time for tax evasion.  The title of the track is “Neurotic Society (Compuslory Mix)”.

According to Lauryn’s Tumblr:

Here is a link to a piece that I was ‘required’ to release immediately, by virtue of the impending legal deadline. I love being able to reach people directly, but in an ideal scenario, I would not have to rush the release of new music… but the message is still there. In light of Wednesday’s tragic loss (of former label mate Chris Kelly), I am even more pressed to YELL this to a multitude that may not understand the cost of allowing today’s unhealthy paradigms to remain unchecked!
