Earlier today, Lauryn Hill pleaded guilty to tax evasion. She now faces a three-year prison term and a fine of up to $75,000 upon sentencing in November. Shortly after she was released on $150,000 bail, Global Grind reached out to her former Fugees cohort Pras who commented on the recent turn of events for Ms. Hill.
“I’m bugging! I can’t believe it! I’m sitting here on a plane to L.A. listening to Phil Collins and Philip Bailey ‘Easy Lover’ on my iPod. But I don’t believe she’ll go to jail, but damn bail is 150K?! Zimmerman was about the same. Go figure! … This is crazy!!” he said.
Pras and Lauryn recently reconnected on stage at the 2011 Rock the Bells festival, where they performed “Ready or Not” and “Killing Me Softly.”
