New Music: Lauryn Hill “Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)”

neurotic-society

Lauryn’s got bills to pay. And now that’s she’s resigned to Sony, she’s hoping get her money right by releasing some new music. Ms. Hill says:

“Here is a link to a piece that I was ‘required’ to release immediately, by virtue of the impending legal deadline,” writes Ms. Hill. “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.”

    i couldn’t get thru more than a minute. im gonna listen to The Miseducation & forget this happened.

  • COOL..

    idk,
    REAL HIPHOP THO>>>> http://youtu.be/N7blWPL-WYo

  • Teejay

    This… Is bad. She’s rapping 4/4 double time on a 6/8 beat. And no singing.

    I doubt she cares, but I’m sure what everyone really wants is the miseducation pt 2.

  • It’s the roc

    Good song, but a tough listen. If that makes any sense lol.

  • Fuck Errbody

    DOPE

  • jerzy

    It really does seem like she’s in a rush. LoL

  • michelle michelle

    translation – you want old Lauryn, buy her old albums

  • Shyne

    damn this is friggin nuerotic but I like it. I mean when people listen to this they need to understand that this isn’t music made in a traditional way. Obviously she was attempting to push the boundaries a little bit and I appreciate her attempt and thought she did a pretty good job. Plus it had substance to it so that immediately makes it better than 90% of the current music.

  • Batman

    ATTENTION… UNEDUCATED PEOPLE OF HIP-HOP THAT DONT KNOW WHO LAURYN HILL IS, PLEASE DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS AND JUDGE HER MUSIC. THIS SONG IS TRASH COMPARED TO HER DEBUT CLASSIC ALBUM “THE MISEDUCATION OF LAURYN HILL”

    AND TO LAURYN HILL…PLEASE DONT SUE J. COLE ON HIS SONG “COLE SUMMER” FOR SAMPLING YOUR SONG. HE WAS JUST GIVING PROPS AND TRYING TO THROW SOME EXTRA CASH YOUR WAY. YOU OWE HIM!!!!

  • Iran The Race

    I like this a lot… most of yall too stupid to comprehend and too quick to pass judgement!

  • http://twitter.com/alwayzambitious alwayz

    Slow the flow down, the content is dope. Presentation is everything. You dont have to sell your soul. Just slow the flow down. She saying some good shit.

  • Joe Nasty

    I hate how she doesn’t respect the system. Yeah, ideally you wouldn’t have to rush your art, but you are lucky that Sony saved your ass. This is your job. I think Lauryn is one of the dopest for real, but I hate her attitude about things.

  • STINKMEANER

    Can we her lyrics separated from the beat? I bet anyone with a beat machine can make her lyrics sound nicer over a better beat selection.

  • Rockradar

    FUCK what Elliot said this shit ant bad at all. Elliot please dont make a truth about this we wont listin

  • Brutally honest

    All the haters saying they want “L-Boogie” back listen to “Lost Ones”, she ripped it and sang on the hook. Matter of fact , all you so-called “Hill Fans” was dogging her on her MTV Unplugged album. She sang new material her “label” refuse to put out as a follow-up to a debut. If you want the old Ms. Hill, but her old album like @michelle said

  • Fuck Errbody

    Ms. Hill is an electric lady. Fuck the system and fake fans. Hear the message. Stop trying to tune out what matters.

    “No man is safe from the war going on outside…”

  • The Black Skip Bayless

    Anytime someone uses a flow like this everyone thinks that theyre lyrical but its not always the case. I like l-boogie but this song definately didnt have her same feel to it. Maybe the next song will be dope

  • Teejay

    It’s just a spastic mess musicaly. The lyrics are on point but the flow doesn’t match the beat.

  • jonnybusiness

    Hot mess. Somebody up at Sony should of Vetod this.

  • tek

    Dope

  • G

    her lyrics and even her flow is dope, but i agree it doesnt do well against the instrumental, but maybe that was the point? idk, her and lupe fiasco have the same attitude about things which is good and bad

  • JustMyOpinion

    What is this?
    Why are we entertaining this woman? I say that as a fan from day one, but this woman has turned her back on rap music, whether it was to raise a family or otherwise. Nonetheless, she’s been inactive for over a DECADE. Now, she wants the label to wait for HER, as well as her fans, you haven’t made music in forever, how long do you need?

    There’s too many people who would love to have the smallest part in rap music. She get the opportunity and plays yo-yo with it. Had enough. Her and Eve can take their raps back and never return. Simba style (lion king reference).

  • because

    @justmyopinion because she’s that good, and you’re just a hater! HATER HATER HATER!!!

  • Karma

    The beat is cool, honestly it was Lauryn that fucked the whole thing up. It could have been a really good song, but she didn’t flow on the beat at all and forgot all about a chorus or hook. Trying too hard to stand out, and sucked instead.

  • JustMyOpinion

    @ because

    ^ You do realize HATER is not an actual word, right? You could’ve substituted HATE and formed an actual sentence.

  • Dashing

    Maybe I’m bugging but I actually really like this joint. The music is sick, the lyrics are dope. She’s rhyming again and musically she’s progressed and isn’t trying to redo her older shit. Was she rapping a little too fast? Yeah, but that’s really the only hating I’ll give to this one.

    I’m surprised. I really expected it to be wack but its tight. Now I’m gonna check for her other shit.

  • PistolPistol

    Racist.

  • Ocelot King

    This is sick

  • ICU

    sONY IS ONLY PLAYING UPON LAURYN’S DESEPARATION. sHE HAS HAD TO EAT EVERYTHING SHE SAID ABOUT GETTING OUT. NOW SHE IS SCRAMBLING TRYING TO GET BACK IN. LOOK WHAT THE INDUSTRY CAN DO TO A DESEPARATE ENTERTAINER. SO WHAT IF YOU SING ABOUT THE PROBLEMS AND TURN AROUND AND BOW TO THE SAME ONE THAT YOU ARE SINGING ABOUT FOR A DOLLAR. WHO IS ZOOMING WHO????
    MAKE DISCIPLES NOT PHENES. YOU ARE BETTER THAN THAT . STOP THE BABBLING AND START LIBERATING.

  • ICU

    FANTASY IS WHAT THEY WANT. REALITY IS WHAT THEY NEED. I’VE JUST RETIRED FROM THE FANTASY PART.

  • http://dieenormousla.wordpress.com supremejets

    To each there own, I can’t fuck with this.

  • the brain trust

    Absolute garbage from Ms. Hill

    This is the perfect illustration of dope lyrics ≠ dope song

  • KNOITALL

    U NIGGAZ is bugging L-Boogie iz a rhyme scientist..THIS IS RHYME SCIENCE!!..all u dweebs that are complaining about her rhyming too fast..u guys are just listening too slow..fuckin simpletons

  • Oj da Cornball

    Sony go regret they gave her that mill.

  • Rozay

    Not too bad but she didn’t ride the beat well almost like she was reading a poem or spoken wod and somebody just added music to it.

    @ICU

    Or is it Barbara Travis? About the first comment you made, Didn’t you make that same comment on another website, ole copy and paste trying to get a cosign ass niggas.

  • Jesus’ Soldier

    It doesn’t matter that the beat is unfinished…
    PAY ATTENTION to Lauryn’s WORDS. If you’re talking
    about anything other than what she
    “said” in these lyrics… go back to
    SLEEP. She STILL has it and is potent as ever
    lyrically and the content is there also. May God
    protect Lauryn as she continues on this journey.
    With soo much damn darkness running around, her
    LIGHT is def needed. Female emcees are slacking..
    shit, HIP HOP is slacking. STAY STRONG AND STAY
    FOCUSED LAURYN. We need YOU!!!!

  • Randy Watson

    Some future music shit right here! If Lauryn isn’t one of the greatest rappers I don’t know who is. She can GO!!!!!

  • rahrahrah

    The fact that people are coming in here to hate is ridiculous. Who is she not shitting on? Who can touch her? Which platinum selling “artist” can hold a candle to this woman? Who? Who? Who?

    kanye? Jay? Nas? Eminem? Roots? Kendrick? Drake? Jeezy?

    Ya’ll playing with yourself. Only Wu-Tang could come close and lately they have lost their way, hopefully “Better Tomorrow” will be a way back to the old soul when Papa Wu could come on and speak for 7 minutes talking about the truth that people need to hear.

  • Randy Watson

    I’m sure the fact that it sounds neurotic is not an accident being that the song is called Neurotic Society. She is truly gifted imo.

  • FTW

    C’mon… Lauryn Hill is unfuckwitable.

    So Dope.

  • WHYuSTATINGtheOBVIOUS

    OMG. Will you niggaz STOP TRYIN SO FVKIN HARD to seem deep and/or introspective and intelligent by talking about how “complex,” or “clever” the lyrics are?!? It’s annoying as s**t! The song is trash period point blank. Yes Lauren is a legend. But ONE legendary album doesn’t excuse bulls**t.

  • WHYuSTATINGtheOBVIOUS

    @Brutally honest, its not like “michelle said.” Its like Jay-Z said.

  • http://www.f.com Fire!!!!!!!!!

    THIS IS FUKKIN FIRE!!!!! IGNORE ALL COMMENTS TRYING TO POSITION YOUR THOUGHTS…. LISTEN TO WHAT SHES SAYING!!!!

  • jayson

    nice, she has been listening to killarmy heavy.

  • StarFox64

    this has me confused, and i think that’s the whole point of the joint…

  • epinz

    I see sony has the damage control bloggers on they job…shit is bad. Nggz talkin about only listen to the kyrics need to kill themseves.its supposed t o be MUSIC!!! instrumentation that works with the lyrics.if it aint about the beat or flow then why not just do spoken word?!?!?! muthafuckas cant call a spade a spade…she lookin like shyne when he got out and made that garbage and def jam had they bloggers damage controling that too

  • Rozay

    Ok, after listening to this at work and commenting after 1 AM and getting some sleep, I listened to this a second time and really listening to every word that she said I conclude that this joint isn’t that bad, change the beat and add hook with her singing this shit will be fire, like a lot of great songs, you don’t get it at first, come back and listen again and you will be surprised like listening to kingdome come again for me, that shit shit go hard I don’t care what no one says.

  • dsunn723

    whos fuckin with this? no rapper alive

  • http://CinematicFresh.com CinematicFRESH

    @ Jayson, hahahahahaha u right. thats the old killarmy flow.

  • Mike

    This is pretty fuckin dope. I don’t see any other female artist rapping there ass off like this, actually having some substance in their lyrics. I could give no fucks about a starship being meant to fly, I will say that. Lauren hill Forever!

  • Mike

    And maybe she is only back to pay the bills. But she’s back non the less faggots! Haters get the gas face!

  • China

    YAAAAS go L-Boogy is just warming up Just Watch..

  • Kristen

    Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job Ive had. Last Tuesday I bought a gorgeous Lancia Straton from earning $4331 this – 5 weeks past. I began this 7-months ago and right away started to earn at least $69, per-hr. I use this website,, http://goo.gl/4z9pn

  • Ramelo

    To me the most “Talented” artists of the Urban Music generation are probably D’Angelo, Lauryn Hill & Nasir Jones. The best way to sum this up is to say what I would say for EVERYTHING else fans complain about, if it’s not appealing to the ears, there is no way around saying it is good music. An incredible amount of lyrical content & lyricism at that, but Lauryn is gonna have to do 2 things moving forward with her music. #1 Get back in great producers who will bring out the soul, reggae, funk, hip hop & #2 She’s gotta slow down, NOBODY likes this sped up delivery she’s been doing for the last 2-3 years on and off at concerts. She did this is at RTB 2 years ago, and ppl either boo or walk to the next stage. And for you fans that say the production and the delivery/voice/cadence doesn’t matter. It’s a good thing you don’t work as an A&R or anywhere else in the music business.

  • Nickey Black

    HER wordplay is crazy, intelligent and deep. The music isn’t traditional but it fits the title. Truth be told, no male mc or female can rock with her. Jay z kindof admitted in his book he was scared of Lauryn. Nas only had her on a fuckin hook cause Hill would have took over the song. I only bought the Fugees because of Hill. If she takes this serious and utilizes better production, these rappers need to hang it up. I’m talking bout Jay, Nas, Em, Mos Def…..etc The only mc’ close to get level is 3000 and Kendrick.

  • Darryl Fleming

    About bloody “TIME”…

  • Therealist

    I wonder how many kids are posting on Lauren hills music who didnt even
    BUY her MIS EDUCATION!

    SHE AINT NO SHITTY NIKKIE MINAJ, or A WHORE like RIhanna , OR big party slut like KIESHA, OR A WHITE GIRL POSER LIKE IGGY Or Vnasty, or a TALK SHIT BITCH like Trina or LIL KIM!

    THIS IS LAUREN HILL! THE OG!, THE INNOVATOR, THE LEGEND HER SELF! DOnt like the song go buy one of those ^^ Lame ass SO CALLED ARTIST music!
    Her music has SUBSTANCE

    Substance something most of you know nothing about lol Keep it up lauren!
    Fuck the the commie haters who dont even know what group of people freed them :)

  • MeMo

    Lyrics are just amazing, her new album should include features with Nas, Andre 3K and Em.

  • technicolor ninja

  • sonia
