Fire & Water: A best of Lauryn Hill in 2 volumes and mixed by J. Period
Susan Ertz rightly said: “Millions long for immortality who don’t know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon”. She was not entirely wrong… Cb…‘s blog does not promise eternal life but ensures you something to do for this Sunday: Listen to a good old Lazy Sunday Mix!
A few Sundays ago, we presented you, with his mixtape as a tribute to James Brown, J. Period, an excellent Dj from Brooklyn. We do it again with another of his mixes, but this time with a very good Best of Lauryn Hill.
It is no more necessary to introduce Lauryn Hill. From her early career with The Fugees and the stunning album “The Score” to her solo career with the magic “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” who received a Grammy Award and recently inducted into Library of Congress, the diva of R&B, Hip Hop, Soul, gave us a nice career. She intoxicated us with her powerful and melodious voice with some classic tracks such like “Ready or Not”, “Ex-Factor”, “To Zion”, “Just Like Water”…
This week, Lauryn Hill has celebrated her 40th birthday. This is an opportunity for us to highlight today the double best of “Fire & Water” signed by J. Period. This mixtape obviously is composed of hits of the charismatic singer (solo and with The Fugees), but also includes exclusive remixes, rare & unreleased material, live shows, interviews… 2 hours of pure happiness! We could almost get tears in our eyes so this mixtape tracing the career of Lauryn Hill is beautiful!
– Press play and enjoy your Lazy Sunday –
