Return of the Queen

L_Boogie.jpg

L-Boogie is back on tour, selling out and I'm compelled to give all of her music another listen. I've spent quite a bit of time mocking fans still pining for a return. I'm convinced that it will come some day, and almost certainly disappoint. But that aside, I can't think of another artist disappearing, as Hill has, giving a string of pilloried shows, suffering from some nameless malady, and yet still maintaining a stable fan-base. There are legal drinkers today, who were in fourth grade the last time Lauryn Hill put out a complete album. Amazing. I always thought Lauryn was a great rapper, and a good singer. It's clear she's something more.


Did anyone catch her in Boston last night?
