Pras: Lauryn Hill Broke Down In Tears The First Time She Recorded “Ready Or Not”


(AllHipHop News) Whether a 21 year old Lauryn Hill was ready for an emotional outburst or not, those tears came. According to former bandmate Pras, Hill broke down in tears and eventually rejoined The Fugees after initially recording the hook for the hit “Ready or Not”.

During his interview with Billboard Pras revealed that The Fugees had disbanded before their 1996 career defining sophomore album The Score was finished being recorded. Her hook on “Ready or Not” was intended to be Hill’s final contribution as member of The Fugees, until emotions took over:

She calls me and says, ‘Listen, I’m going to come down to the studio and I’m going to lay down a reference for you guys, a hook. I give you permission to use my hook, my voice, but I don’t want to be a part of this group anymore.’ I said, ‘Fair enough. No problem.’ She said, ‘Make sure certain people are not around when I’m there.’ I said, ‘No problem.’ She’s laying the reference for ‘Ready Or Not’ and then she goes into the bridge and she’s crying. I see her crying. She stops and says, ‘I can’t do this anymore,’ and leaves. A couple months later she re-joins the group.

The Fugees’ The Score went on to win the 1997 Gramm Award for Best Rap Album and sold over 17 million records woldwide. The group disbanded in 1997.

  • The album was hot, but what I did not know at the time is that it is a patchwork of old hits, which makes it less appealing to me now.

    • Chris Commons

      Yea that’s one of the reasons why the Miseducation of Lauryn Hill aged better than the Score

  • Guest

    This is why I feel that most female artist aren’t built for the industry. I am sure she had a flashback of her age and how much more fun it all was back then….And now she is much older and things have changed drastically….But dry your tears Lauryn you are still considered to be greatness, we all can’t be young and popping forever.

    • AlwaysBlossom

      this has to do with Wyclef and Lauryn’s relationship and Wyclef’s known backstabbing. Lauryn got out because she saw the detriment of the industry as well. She’s actually the SMART ONE.

    “I HEARD THE FUGEES WAS TRYNA DO ME LOOK BITCH I CUT YOUR FACE THIS AINT NO MUTHAFUCKIN MOVIE.. WATCH THE OTHER 2 DIE SLOW…. IM RUNIN ALL YOU COWARDS OUT OF HIP HOP.”-2PAC.. AND WHAT HAPPENED LAURYN MADE RNB AFTER THAT WYCCLEF MAKES WORLD MUSIC NOW AND PRAS DISSAPEARED ANOTHER” L” FOR NYC

    • Jayson C Williams

      It’s started here! Doesn’t mean it has to stay, all blacks if they aren’t immigrants are from the south so why the hell does everyone keep seperating us. East coast this coast. Shits really nonsense

      • David Gonz

        fugees started it bro. pac ran them outa hiphop thats my point.

    • Dhz30

      lol pac was raw with them diss records

    • Weedras

      Dude its 2014 and you’re still into coastal beefs smh…

      • David Gonz

        no coastal beef i just think new york sucks. philly is dope.

  • I just think Lauryn had some really bad issues in dealing with men. She’s a dope lyricist but internally she has some serious issues. According to Wyclef she tried to trick him into believing he was responsible for her pregnancy. Wow. And I suspect that comment about “Make sure certain people aren’t there” was Wyclef. I always thought she was a strong Black leader in hip hop. Instead she’s proven to be just as mortal as us all.

    • AlwaysBlossom

      Wyclef is a liar, that is not true. He knew the child wasn’t his. Why don’t you research facts first instead of listening to a liar. There’s a reason he lied, so that his book could sell more. Everyone is mortal, WTF…She still is a strong person/leader.
