In the clip, the Fugees frontwoman discusses her 1998 Grammy award-winning LP, a work of art that has garnered her critical acclaim and a legion of followers. "I think we understood that ['The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill'] was going to be landmark, but i don't think i understood to what degree other people would really be deeply impacted by what was done," the rapper-singer states. "I say all the time, I make music not necessarily for selfish reasons, but I make the music I want to hear. And when you find that other people want to hear that too, how could you not be excited about that."
Hill, who reveals that the effort was an exhibit of "low and high culture coming together," used the album as a way to educate people about life lessons and amazing music. "I was excited about taking this music that I thought was beautiful -- old school, doo-wop music, cats used to harmonize -- just taking that and making something contemporary that my generation could get excited about," she shares.
