So Why Hasn’t Lauryn Hill Addressed The Wyclef Drama? “It’s Called The High Road. Try Taking It Sometimes.”

The time has come for Lauryn Hill to speak out, sort of, about the latest drama that’s been following her. After her tax situation, she wrote a very personal letter about her trials over the years, and now while on the road performing with Nas on the Life Is Good/Black Rage tour, Lauryn addressed the stories Wyclef has dug up about her as of late.

As we’ve talked about many a time, Wyclef has released a memoir exposing a lot of his past with the Fugees singer, including a claim that Lauryn initially told him her son Zion was his. So far, Lauryn has kept quiet through all the talk, but at her show in Dallas, she finally addressed it — and subliminally laid into Clef:

When you are on the other side of liberation, just make sure you are not late. Be careful how you judge, there is a lot of deception out there. A lot of misunderstanding out there. A lot of miscommunication out there. A lot of false information out there.  And notice, out of all the people who talk talk talk, who’s the silent one.  There’s a lot of chat, but me….

And you know why? Let me tell you why I don’t chat back.  Because I know that my brothers and my sisters are often times pawns in a bigger scheme so when they, under pressure, attack me, I love them still.  It’s called the high road. Try taking it sometimes.

I’m not going to play my hand like the suppressive system would have me play my hand. Because I know [about] the oppression that took place in Haiti, and Jamaica, and America, and Africa and Europe. So just be patient. The truth always surfaces and especially, all you black folks out there who have had black mothers who carried you through thick and thin, when the system wanted to call them crazy, just remember that.

OK, Miss Hill. What do you think about what she had to say?

You know I know I’m not crazy, that’s why I can use the word so freely. Crazy like a fox? Ahead of the curve. People don’t like people that’s ahead of the curve but unfortunately that’s not my problem.

    This is why I respect Lauryn more than Nicki Minaj and some of these female artist, she responds to negativity with class, not with vulgar or threatening response on Twitter and Instagram.

    I don’t understand why people put her on such a pedastal. Sure, her music is great and relatable. For me, her album is still in rotation to this day. However, in my opinion, her musical genius shouldn’t be sufficient grounds for me or others to essentially treat her like a god. Lauryn Hill may be a source of pride and honor for many black women, but she is still a human being. She can make mistakes. She can be imperfect.

      I agree. I was disappointed with her when I last saw her in concert a little over a year ago and the crowd waited almost two hours for her to get on stage. She also appeared agitated with her band and generally bossy. I’m not saying these aren’t forgivable actions, but it clearly showed me that day she was human. This still stands out in my mind when I think about her.
