The Mis-Crediting of Lauryn Hill

Just a few months after her Grammy-winning blockbuster solo debut, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, came out in 1998, Lauryn was sued by New-Ark, a group of musicians and producers who worked on the album with her. The lawsuit claimed that the crew wasn't properly credited for co-writing and co-producing the majority of the album; it was settled out of court for $5 million in 2001.
