New Lauryn Hill finally reaches the masses with “Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)”. With a new deal in the works with Sony, Ms. Hill is currently trying to keep herself out of prison and out of trouble with the IRS. Take a listen to the new dope track above and read what Lauryn had to say on the matter:
