17 Songs, 1 Hour 17 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

It was a deep-dish cover of the Roberta Flack oldie "Killing Me Softly With His Song" that pushed this record over the top in sales, but what makes The Score resonate is a smart male/female dynamic — the trio's third member is Lauryn Hill — a humanism that comes through both in rhyme and music, and, oh yeah, bizarre laughs. (One interlude features a Michael Jackson-humming Chinese-takeout owner administering a beatdown to a recalcitrant customer.)

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Hip Hop is unfair

How is it that great hip hop albums like this are compltely overlooked, and crap like souja boy or flo rida sits on the top of the charts. This is true hip hop. These mc's are extremely talented and the lyrics are creative and thoughtful. The fact that great albums like this don't get any recognition just blows my mind

best rap album ever

this is simply the best hip hop album ever created. It's a shame the Fugees are having issues with their record label in terms of artistic freedom. This album has reason for being the best selling hip hop album ever (18x Platinum), because it is simply a masterpiece. Every song has an amazing beat, with conscious, well though-out lyrics from Wyclef, Lauryn Hill, and Pras. Lauryn Hill does some of her best rhyming on the album and shows why she's an inspiration for all women in hip hop.

There is not a bad song on the album. At all. Listen from beginning to end with no problem.
