Lauryn Hill recently found her self in legal troubles and to keep her self out of jail, she signed a deal with Sony. The deal requires her to release a new album with the powerful record label and in return she’ll make enough cash to keep herself out the pen. Lauryn announced the deal on her Tumblr page.

Here is the first new track from the album–Neurotic Society Compulsory Mix and this is what Ms. Lauryn Hill has to say about the track.

Hello All:

Here is a link to a piece that I was ‘required’ to release immediately, by virtue of the impending legal deadline. I love being able to reach people directly, but in an ideal scenario, I would not have to rush the release of new music… but the message is still there. In light of Wednesday’s tragic loss (of former label mate Chris Kelly), I am even more pressed to YELL this to a multitude that may not understand the cost of allowing today’s unhealthy paradigms to remain unchecked!


Many are skeptical about the project with beliefs that Lauryn is going to dish out anything just to save herself. But Fugees collaborator Wyclef Jean much like us, wants Lauryn to win. During an interview with MTV he wished Lauryn the best with her legal troubles and promised fans Lauryn will offer up a great album.
