Lauryn Hill’s 1998 solo debut album 'The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill' cemented her as the first superstar to excel at both singing and rapping. The New Jersey native had already given listeners a glimpse of both abilities as a member of the Fugees. On the group’s seminal 1996 album 'The Score,' Hill showed off her MCing skills on songs such as “Ready or Not” while demonstrating her powerful vocals on the group’s remake of Roberta Flack’s “Killing Me Softly With His Song.”
