How did Lauryn Hill earn her money and wealth?

Lauryn Hill was born on May 26, 1975. She is an American singer, songwriter, rapper, and actress. She is best remembered for being a part of the Fugees and for blockbuster hit solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, which earned several awards and broke several records of sales. Lauryn Hill gave many hit albums with her band and achieved success in her late career. She not only won the hearts with her melodious voice but also impressed the audience with her acting skills.

Born in South Orange, Hill started her journey of music in childhood. Born in a music-oriented family, it was easier for her to begin her career in singing. She enjoyed success as an actress at an early age, playing many roles on television and in films like soap opera As the World Turns and in the Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit, released in 1993. Hill was approached by Pras Michel in high school to start a band. They named their band as the Fugees and released the albums Blunted on Reality (1994) and The Score (1996). Hill’s wild romantic relationship with Jean forced her to leave the band, after which she started focusing on solo projects.

Hill released The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill in 1998. It was her only solo album. The album topped the chart on the U.S. Billboard 200 and was successful in selling approximately eight million copies. It included the singles “Everything Is Everything”, “Ex-Factor” and “Doo Wop”, the album earned her five awards at the 41st Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year and Best New Artist. She became a star with her only solo album and earned recognition that she always wanted.

After releasing her first album, Hill escaped from the music industry, disappointed with the music industry and suffering from a load of fame. Her last live album MTV Unplugged No. 2.0 released in 2002, disappointed her fans and critics and didn’t mark its presence on the billboard and in the hearts of her fans. Hill’s successive activity, which includes the release of a few songs and few festival appearances, has been irregular. Many times her behavior disappointed her audience and her reunion with Fugees also didn’t last for long.

Hill is married to Rohan Marley and the couple has five children together. Hill’s one child is with someone else who is publicly unknown. In 2013, she served the sentence of 3 months due to the failure to pay federal income taxes.
