A Gem from Lauryn Hill
An Appreciation Piece by Othello
I was 10 years old in 1998 when Lauryn Hill released “Doo Wop (That Thing)”. That song was from her debut album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill”. At the age of 10, I quite didn’t pay attention to the message of the song. I was more concerned with going outside to play and watching cartoons, but I knew I liked the song because of her beautiful voice and the beat. As I began to listen to the album and that song for years to come, I began to understand more the message that she was trying to portray.
