Ms. Lauryn Hill Writes Personal Essay Addressing Many Misconceptions

A couple weeks ago, musician Robert Glasper did an interview where he spoke on Lauryn stealing others peoples music, firing band members, and much more.    Well today, Ms. Lauryn Hill responds to his claims and many other common misconceptions about her in a personal 3000 word essay. 

In Robert Glasper's interview he said:

“She took the credit for making the classic album. Those songs were written by other people and they did not get their credit,” -Robert Glasper

“You haven’t done enough to be the way you are. You just have not. The one thing you did that was great, you didn’t do. ... She couldn’t tune her guitar in rehearsal,” -Robert Glasper

Ms. Lauryn Hill responded:

“These are my songs, musicians are brought in because of the masterful way that they play their instruments,”...   “You may be able to make suggestions, but you can’t write FOR me. I am the architect of my creative expression. No decisions are made without me.”  Ms. Lauryn Hill

In her essay, Ms. Lauryn Hill  also addressed the ugly rumor that goes around about her being late for shows:

“Me being late to shows isn’t because I don’t respect my fans or their time, but the contrary, It can be argued that I care too much, and insist on things being right. I like to switch my show up regularly, change arrangements, add new songs, etc. This often leads to long sound checks, which leads to doors opening late, which leads to the show getting a late start. This element of perfectionism is about wanting the audience to experience the very best and most authentic musical experience they can from what I do,”
