Lauryn Hill Puts Off Prison, Signs Million-Dollar Deal with Sony

Ms. Lauryn Hill

Lauryn Hill was scheduled to be sentenced for tax evasion today, but her case has been delayed for two weeks.  She appeared in a Newark courtroom, where it was revealed that she has signed a lucrative deal with Sony.

The former Fugees frontwoman is facing prison after pleading guilty to not paying federal taxes on $1.8 million earned between 2005 and 2007.  She appeared before a federal judge, who postponed her sentencing to May 6 and scolded the Grammy winner for not making progress on the debt.

“This is not someone who stands before the court penniless,” U.S. Magistrate Judge Madeline Cox Arleo told Hill’s attorney, Nathan Hochman.  “This is a criminal matter. Actions speak louder than words, and there has been no effort here to pay these taxes.”

According to TMZ, Hill’s attorney revealed that the singer recently signed a million-dollar recording contract with her former label Sony and was planning to take out a $650,000 loan to pay off the $968,000 tax bill.

“I fully expect that by May 3 Ms. Hill will be able to pay back all the restitution she has,” Hochman told the judge.

Hill faces several years in prison, but her attorney is seeking probation for the mother of six.

“Kidd Kidd” Being removed from: “We Up” – ft. 50 Cent, Kendrick Lamar

On his removal from “We Up,” Kidd said: “[The] first thing I want to tell to people is that it wasn’t a 50 Cent decision. A lot of people come and they be like, ‘Yo, 50 [Cent] took you off the song,’ it wasn’t no 50 Cent decision. That’s what it is, it’s all politics you know what I’m sayin’, the game is politics. It’s just a blessing to even be brought up in that same conversation because the song is a great song, it was a blessing to even just be a part of that. It is what it is, you keep moving forward. It’s not like that’s the only good song in the world.”

Ace Hood on: Paper’s VS. Blunt’s

Ride (Ace Hood song)

I ain’t going to lie, I think I prefer papers. I like papers.

I like to use papers. I would agree with what Styles P and Prodigy said about papers being more healthy for you because of the tobacco that’s in blunts. It’s for that same exact reason I prefer papers.

It’s more healthy for you. Well, it sounds kind of strange to say that because you’re still smoking weed but yeah, it’s healthier than smoking blunts. I’m honestly not really with all of that, you know, and plus it’s more comfortable for me to smoke the papers.

I really like the papers and especially for me, I’m into fitness and all that good stuff so I’m not a real heavy, heavy, heavy smoker. I usually like to do it for my vibes and my creative process. I prefer papers but if you can’t get your hands on some papers right at that exact moment, you have to do what you’ve got to do and go for a swisher. You know what I mean?
