Fugees Scrap Reunion
Band principal Pras confirms the reunion is 'dead' due to Lauryn Hill's adverse mind-set.
Despite a studio recording session that produced a handful of ‘incredible’ tracks, reggae-tinged R&B outfit the Fugees, comprised of Pras, Wyclef Jean, and Lauryn Hill, have curbed the band’s chatter-amassing reunion. In a recent interview with Billboard.com, band principal Pras confirmed the reunion was off, and cited notoriously demanding frontwoman Lauryn Hill as the perpetrator. “We went in the studio and recorded a couple records that were incredible. But, to put it nicely, it’s dead,” Pras said. “Me and Clef, we on the same page, but Lauryn [Hill] is in her zone, and I’m fed up with that sh*t. Here she is, blessed with a gift, with the opportunity to rock and give, and she’s running on some b*llshit? I’m a fan of Lauryn’s but I can’t respect that.”
