Lauryn Hill Rocks the Bells?

Lauryn Hill may have shied away from the music scene over the past few years, but she’s about to return to the spotlight in a big way. Though the official announcement will be made tonight at The Key Club in West Hollywood, L Boogie is rumored to be headlining this year’s Rock the Bells tour, with plans for the songstress to perform her seminal 1998 release ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill‘ in its entirety at each stop on the tour.

Also rumored to be on the bill is A Tribe Called Quest, who reunited to headline the same festival tour in 2008. The group’s participation in this year’s festival could very well lead to an on-stage collaboration between the former Fugee and the hip-hop group, as the Fugees sampled the Tribe’s classic ‘Bonita Applebaum’ for their hit cover of Roberta Flack’s ‘Killing Me Softly.’

The gig would mark the first time in years that Hill has consistently toured around the United States, fueling speculation that new music from Hill could soon follow. Since the release of her eight times platinum-certified ‘Miseducation,’ Hill has become notoriously reclusive, reemerging in 2002 to film an episode of ‘Unplugged 2.0′ and release a double-disc album of the performance. But since then, L Boogs has only performed at major festivals and appeared distracted and disoriented, most notably with her eccentric appearance during her short-lived reunion with The Fugees for 2006′s ‘Dave Chappelle’s Block Party’ film.

Hill would join past headliners such as Wu-Tang Clan and Nas and Damian Marley as Rock the Bell’s main performers. If this year’s festival follows the same timetable as pervious years’ events, the tour could begin as early as late June and continue through the end of the summer.
