On August 25, 1998, Lauryn Hill shook up the music industry when she released her first and only solo album. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill instantly shot to the top of the Billboard 200 chart, broke the record for the best first-week sales by a woman artist, and eventually won five Grammys, including Album of the Year. While Hill has had her fair share of struggles over the past 20 years, her musical legacy can never be overlooked or erased. This BitchTape celebrates Hill—and not just for Miseducation. It also includes songs she wrote and produced for other artists and songs that sample her work.
