The Miseducation of Lauren Hill is an undisputed classic (in fact, we ranked it as the second best hip-hop album of all time). For the record’s 25th anniversary, the iconic artist is taking the album on the road, and she’s brining along her old rap group Fugees for good measure. Seemingly, this 11-date run is geared towards a very specific audience: people who enjoy incredible music.
