Pras Reacts To Lauryn Hill Pleading Guilty To Tax Evasion

Pras releases a statement regarding Lauryn Hill's recent guilty plea.

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."

    Baby neeeda snap Lauryn up & put her on that YMCMB grind. Then she'll be rolling in it.

    L-Boogie needs to drop whatever psycho drama she has going on and drop an album to make some money. I'm sure if she is a real artist, she has a vault full of good unreleased material.

    government arrests ppl for not being able to steal their money. most dirtiest greediest thieves ever, I hope these people in the government who tax and steals people money via sales tax and income tax(oh and social security tax, which they already used up the money for stupid ass shit and now out of funding; the money you put into ss>the money you'll ever get back.) then goes and puts into shit like welfare fucking gets raped along with their family and watch their whole family killed piece by piece and then throw their carcasses to some animals in Africa.

    Pras is a total joke. The Fugees broke up cause of Lauryn Hill and now Pras can't stack that paper. How is he gonna go out and defend her. He's a total fucking tool. But that's what he gets for working with snakes like Lauryn and Wyclef. Luckily everybody on the YMCMB roster cares about making that money. We had some wackos who didn't put money and family first, like Manny Fresh, but we kicked him out of the circle.

      It's dudes like you that get so caught up in other folks money, that your life become a negro failure.Maybe "We" need to get a life. P.S. - What are you talking about anyway?-dudes be rambling...

      Man you talking like you are the one making money in Young money faggots. Really need to stop dick riding. Then again maybe the world does need idiots such as yourself to defend bullshit so then we can laugh at your stupid ass.

      Dumbass. Everything you said is a bunch of bullshit. P.s. what do you mean "we?" You're not part of YMCMB. You're just a groupie.

    "I'm sitting here on a plane to L.A. listening to Phil Collins and Philip Bailey" Never tell the world what's on your IPOD.

      Genesis/Phil Collins has more recognition than Lauryn Hill will ever have. Just look at his album sales!

      In the Air Tonight is basically his only song that isn't the kind of thing that some Bateman-clone yuppie wouldn't jerk off to though. The rest of his output kinda sucks.

      What's wrong with listening to Phil Collins? Some hip-hop artists sample his music, you know. For example, 2Pac's "Starin Through My Rearview," DMX's "I Can Feel It," and Nas' "One Mic" samples Collins' "In the Air Tonight" and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony remade his song "Take Me Home." And for "Easy Lover" with Philip Bailey; Joe Budden, Jim Jones, Wale, and Childish Gambino each have a track sampling that song.

      ^^^-actually the jokes is on you, what is on his iPod is inmaterial to the conversation of Lauren Hill. That's the issue. If someone ask you how you feel about her getting out on bail for 150k, you don't starting spitting crap about what you're doing (flying to L.A.)- and what's on your iPod. Who cares? He probably at home cold calling folks and scamming for money anyway...Flying to L.A., NEEEGRO PAALEEEZE!
