Lauryn Hill's First Verse on "Lost Ones"

L-Boogie doesn't even bother to hit those Sister Act notes on "Lost One." And she doesn't need to. Instead, she gives that pure Fugee-la flow to deliver a memorable commentary on the miseducation of the commercialized, using multisyllabic words and internal rhyme schemes. "It's funny how money change a situation/ Miscommunication leads to complication/ My emancipation don't fit your equation/ I was on the humble, you on every station..." (and that's just the opening bars).
