Common & Lauryn Hill

Lauryn Hill interpolated Stevie's "Never Dreamed You'd Leave in Summer" on the hook for her hit 1997 collabo with Common, "Retrospect for Life." But even if you set aside this beautiful song, Stevie's thoughtful, risk-taking music blazed trails for the careers of both Commom and Hill.
