Lauryn Hill is making moves.. She comes with a new song.. perhaps a teaser as to what we can expect in future offerings which will hopefully help her retire her tax debt.. What do y’all think of this new joint..
Important Update.. On May 6th 2013 Lauryn Hill was sentenced to three months in jail for tax evasion’.. The song that is released below was supposed to help her stay out of jail, but apparently not..The judge wants the mother of 6 to spend 3 months in jail.. Not sure what that will accomplish.. Does the US want its money or do they want to disrupt someone’s family life? When will some of these corporate tax cheats do time for not paying taxes? Thus far a slew of artists ranging from Wesley Snipes to Beanie Segal to Ja Rule all have been sentenced for not paying taxes..The message should be clear.. If you’re not a rich white corporate CEO the government will come and get you..
If thats not enough Lauryn Hill is also being ordered to undergo counseling to deal with her ‘conspiracy theories’.. lauryn who recently talked about the music industry being overly commercial and part of the illuminati raised concerns and now they want her to do counseling on top of the 3 months jail time and 3 months home confinement read about that HERE
One would think some of these lawmakers who ran around with crazy theories like economic trickle down or rape having a variety of categories including legitimate rape would be required to take counseling, but alas such is not the case in America

The former Fugees member was very vocal about the rebuilding process and even threw his hat into the political arena to run for president in Haiti. Although he his presidential hopes were dashed, Wyclef still does what he can to help out his fellow Haitian brothers and sisters in the slow, pain-staking process of putting their lives and country back together.

( 4UMF NEWS ) 4UMF Exclusive With Maino Wyclef And Jack Thriller:
Brooklyn emcee Maino is taking his talents and hitting the stage but it’s not one he is known for. The “That Could Be Us” rapper is set to star in the upcoming hip-hop musical Freedom.
The play is based on the real life story of David Ranta, a Brooklyn man who was freed last month after serving 23 years in prison for a murder conviction. Ranta was found guilty in the 1991 botched robbery and murder of Brookyln Rabbi Chaskel Werzberger. A hot button issue that needs to be addressed by lawmakers, Freedom aims to shine a spotlight on similar cases like Ranta’s across the country.
“Jurors go into a trial thinking that if a defendant was seen committing a crime, and they confessed to doing the crime, they are guilty,” read Freedom’s press release. “However, statistics show that in 25 percent of the cases where the defendant was exonerated because of DNA, they had made incriminating statements, confessed, or plead guilty.”
Maino will be joined on stage by actress Felecia Gorham and lyricist/composer Chi-Ill.
Held at the intimate The Slipper Room in downtown Manhattan, VIP guests and industry insiders were invited to an exclusive preview of Freedom.
4UMF caught up with Maino who spoke about how he prepared for the role, his personal experiences with the jail system and his latest music project with the Mafia.
