Throwback Thursday: Fugees – Ready or Not
E2E music feature writer Lydia brings back another old school jam, for Throwback Thursday.
What’s good guys? I’m back again with another old school banger, and I know you’re gonna be able to get down with this one. This week’s choice is the Fugees ‘Ready or Not’, taken from the timeless classic The Score.
I remember this album being one of the first albums my sister and I owned, with tracks such as ‘Fu-Gee-La’, ‘How Many Mics’ and of course ‘Killing Me Softly’ teaching us exactly what Hip Hop was about.
The rest is history really, as it is without a doubt that the love I have for Hip Hop stems from many of the Fugees early releases. Personally, it is on this track that Lauryn Hill shows us exactly what she is about. The vocals on the hook are second to none, and her flow on the penultimate verse proves that she is the best female emcee – alive or dead. Can’t nobody do it like Ms. Hill! I dare you to challenge me on that, bruh!
