Lauryn Hill Dismisses Fan From Concert

Lauryn Hill reportedly performs late and has security remove a fan for flipping her off.

Lauryn Hill recently had a fan removed from a Chicago, Illinois concert after she spoke to the person about disrespect. 

"When I get up on this stage, don't be disrespectful," Lauryn Hill says in a video posted by TMZ. "You can go. Seriously. You can go...I would prefer that. You're not gonna mess [this] up for the rest of these people. You can get your money and go. I'm alright with that. I'm okay with that."

Hill, who reportedly performed 50 minutes after her scheduled set time, was allegedly upset when the fan heckled her. TMZ reports that her first song was "terrible" and that the fan flipped her off. 

"I don't play that," Hill says in the clip. "I don't need to win you over. You don't need to win me over. You can go and you can get all your money right back. I do this because I love it, not because I owe you anything. You understand that? You can get on your blogs and you can tweet. You can say whatever you want to. I don't give a rat's ass." 

In April 2013, Hill appeared before a judge for sentencing in a tax evasion hearing. The New Jersey emcee-singer was reportedly ordered to pay a million dollars in penalties and back-taxes from failure to file in 2005, 2006 and 2007

Her problems didn't end there. In June 2013, Hill reportedly faced eviction from a New Jersey mansion she had been renting.

In July 2013, Hill went to prison for tax charges. In October of the same year, Hill was released from prison following a three month stint due to tax charges

    smh the anti lauryn hill agenda is real out here swear these are the same people who would clap their hands like there's no tomorrow if eminem pissed on them on stage, yet they're mad at lauryn for rightfully asking a disrespectful retard to leave her show

  • MrBoombyaa

    Hmm, Lauren Hill is over... she obviously couldn't take the fame. She suffers from all sorts of paranoia and she has lost her voice. Yes her first album was Epic, but one Good album doesn't give you the right to be a bitch. She also has said that she doesn't want white people to buy her albums. So i say Let her be broke on the marley farm and quit performing.. nobody wants to see you like this in the shadow of your former self.

    • dadukestin

      Your a tool seriously who are you? On a rap blog acting like your the shit fuck outta here with that. Your the bitch

  • Yo

    All of you punks on here dissing LEGENDS like Lauryn, Chuck, Dame, Jay Electronica... you can talk that shit over the internet you fucking racist white muthafuckaz. In real life I would smack the shit out of you incest breeds. Disrespectful imbeciles. No wonder Lauryn kicked him out, If I was the Owner of DX I would IP Ban all you imbeciles dissing on Hip Hop Legends. You are lucky HipHopDX still believes in freedom of speech bc they let a lot of shit slide on here!!!!


    100 bucks says the dude she kicked out was white!!!

  • Nice

    As big a fan of her early material as I still pleases me to see this shitbag ruin all of the amazing talent she had. This chick is a delusional whackjob who takes zero responsibility for her retarded actions. You preach respect to paying customers you disrespected? fuck outta here, this the same moron who thinks she's exempt from paying taxes...just becuz she's Lauren Hill. Plus she destroyed the Fugees when they were at their best

  • Drew

    I enjoyed The Score and Miseducation just as much as her Stans, but I cant help but laugh at the fact that I saw her at Rock the Bells OVER 4 years ago as the "Special Guest" and everyone was SOO angry. Not only was she late over an hour, and a whack ass "Special Guest" but she literally sounded like an old lady gettin raped. No sympathy for her. Nothin can take away what she's done in the past but to see that she still shows up late and still sounds like shit live gives the W to the fan for me. And there were way more than just 1 person flippin her off and booing @ RTB

    • Word

    Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail ================== ==================

    haha, Lauryn may be irrelevant and embittered at this point, but she is better than most of your favorite rappers circa the score and miseducation. I feel bad for you new jacks who think today's hip hop stars have skills. Nick Minaj, please. that being said, similar to Lord Jamar, they both grew up in predominantly white towns with above average median incomes. All of their commentary on race and hip hop is somewhat ironic. I'm not saying they're not entitled and don't occassionally have a point, but lets talk about where you come from Jamar and Lauryn. Lauryn Hill's comments were taken out of context however. she grew up in suburban NJ with Zach Braff. Jamar a chump.

      who cares if she grew up in the slums or a mansion? shes an amazing musician, get a life u fucking idiot..and your statement contradicts itself. you said her commentary on race is ironic because she grew up in a white neighborhood. You do realize she black, right? if anything, she would know first hand about racism.

  • BO

      Which of the house pets is your sleeping buddy (wink, wink) this week-end.

    It's funny how she talks about being disrespectful, but this is the same person several years back who said she rather see her kids starve than to have a white person buy your music! I guess it's only a one sided thing for her though!

  • Alex

    Her tours and live shows suck! All I see are bad reviews about how shes always late getting on stage and the songs sound like trash.

    • Yo

      Have any of u people ever even been to rap / hip hop concert? They always start late, 50 mins is nothing, there usually 3 to 4 hours late

    • Anonymous

      I'm surprised that people still go to see Miss Lauryn Hill live. I'm not concerned whether fans think the song selection sucks or sound like trash but consistently showing up 50-60 minutes for a live performance is unacceptable. I enjoy her music but I wouldn't go see her live (or any other act) that consistently begins their set late.

    Why would you pay to go to someone's concert than flip them off? Makes no sense. If you don't like them don't go...

    • Anonymous

      because she was supposed to play at a certain time, kept everyone waiting around and then put on a terribly half assed show

  • R.Pgh

    "don't be disrespectful" - which people could say about her for constantly showing up late to every show.
