Who knows if Lauryn Hill will ever officially return to Hip-Hop as a rapper. To be honest, Lauryns so talented, most of us would be happy to have her in any way. This is why her recent duet with Ronald Isley is such a joy. The pair remake the classic Burt Bacharach-written record Close To You and give it a modern twist. Not one once of the legendary song is lost on Lauryn and Mr. Bigg. Even though the Hip-Hop Nation could use the emcee talents of Lauryn Hill, this will do for now. As for Ronald Mr. Bigg Iseley glad to have you back too after that lil’ bid.
Burt Bacharach and Barbra Streisand sing “Close To You” – nearly 40 years ago!
