The Greatest Rappers Of All-Time
15. Lauryn Hill
AKA: L Boogie
Region: East Coast
Resume: The Score (The Fugees) (1996)
Lauryn Hill may be most well known for her multi-platinum 1998 album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill but her early work with Fugees already had her in contention for the best female rapper of all time. Hailing from South Orange, New Jersey, Hill flirted with acting in the early 90s and landed roles on the TV show As the World Turns and the 1993 film Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit where she showcased her soulful singing skills. She joined the Fugees shortly after and released the albums Blunted on Reality in 1994 and the Grammy Award-winning The Score in 1996.
Lauryn’s ability to sing beautifully, combined with a steady flow of sharply delivered rhymes, makes her a talent the likes of which we’ve never seen before or since. Her wide array of skills are perhaps best displayed with her work on the track “Ready Or Not” where she is not only responsible for one of the 90s most memorable hooks, but also raps with the distinctive flow that has her “defecating on the microphone.” If not for her public breakdown in the late 90s and a subsequent prison stint, Lauryn Hill would most likely have been on track to become the greatest selling female artist of all time.
