Following the shooting of 18year old black man Michael Brown, who was gunned down by a police officer Darren Wilson, in a racial profiling incident in Ferguson Missouri and the unrest that has since followed, today has seen vocal powerhouse Lauryn Hill lend her voice and show support through song.
Hill, has released a new song titled ‘Black Rage’
A Judge in Newark New Jersey has just slapped R&b singer Lauryn Hill with a 3 month prison sentence for tax evasion.
Hill pled guilty last year to three counts of tax evasion for failing to file returns on $1.8 million she made between 2005 and 2007.
Hers is a sad story, to see such a talented individual have to go through all these trials and tribulations.
In addition to her prison stint, she will have to spend 3 more months under house arrest.
Here’s to hoping she will pick herself up and get back on top when all this is over
