While rap may have started out as a mostly male-dominated genre, the ladies who have been successful in the rap game over the years are just as good at spitting hard and fast rhymes as their guy counterparts. But out of newer rhymestresses like Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. and legendary names like Missy Elliott and Lauryn Hill, who gets your vote for the best female rapper?
New mom Lauryn Hill is accused of being a backstage bully on tour in a new lawsuit filed by one of her ex-bandmates. The former Fugees member was slapped with a lawsuit by guitarist Jay Gore who claims that she didn't pay him for his services on her European tour in 2007. The musician is seeking $23,600 of lost wages owed to him, as well as $20,000 in punitive damages, reports Rolling Stone.
Lauryn Hill posted an open letter on her website, somewhat addressing the rumors about the paternity of her newborn son. She does not say who the father is, nor does she clearly state that her longtime partner Rohan Marley is or is not the child's father. In fact, she seems to take careful measures to keep the information ambiguous, sparking further speculation.
Lauryn Hill gave birth to her sixth child, a boy, on Saturday, July 23. Congrats to Hill on expanding her brood yet again. She has yet to reveal that bouncing baby boy's name at press time. Hill only announced that she was expecting last month, so that's why it seems like only yesterday that we found out she was preggers! PopCrush has mad respect for the singer for balancing her musical career with a half-dozen children.
This has gotta sting. R&B diva Lauryn Hill, who is only now resurfacing on stage after a lengthy absence from performing despite her much lauded 'The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill' album, is pregnant with her sixth child -- but longtime love Rohan Marley has reportedly left her and is shacking up with Brazilian model Isabeli Fontana. Ouch.
The elusive Lauryn Hill purposefully dropped off pop music's radar after her groundbreaking solo effort, 1998's 'The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.'
She may have stopped making music and performing in public until very recently, but there is one thing Hill continued to do and that's populate a brood of kids with longtime love Rohan Marley, who is in fact the son of reggae legend Bob Marley. The incredibly fertile Hill announced on Saturday, while performing in Detroit, that she is indeed pregnant with her sixth child!
