Lauryn Hill Pens Another Letter to Fans Following Jail Release
Lauryn Hill presented her fans with ‘Consumerism‘ right after her release from prison, which is a record that wasn’t received with much acclaim. The song already came attached with her ‘Letters From Exile,’ but she’s once again gifted her fans with another open letter.
She isn’t calling out the American institution or elaborating on the importance of her poorly-received tracks this time though. This time it’s a handwritten letter thanking fans for their support during her three-month stint for tax evasion.
“Firstly, I want to thank everyone who wrote letters and sent packages and books,” she writes. “Because of you there was not one day that I didn’t receive mail while I was away. I appreciated that. Know that many of your letters not only touched me but continued to confirm for me what I already know but needed to hear again: that sincere expression has a serious purpose. If one of you had been touched, picked up, encouraged or prevented from succumbing to some form of social or spiritual decline, then it was worth it.
“Folks, walk strong, seek light and universal reproof in all things. Know that man-made concerns and universal concerns are not always in agreement. Obviously, strive to please God. Thank You again and again:”
Hill is planning to suspend her three-month home detention sentence to begin touring on Nov. 15 to New Year’s Eve.
