You will never forget the incomparable image of Lauryn Hill next to Pras Michel and Wyclef Jean.
This is why we will never underestimate a song by the Fugees.
The Fugees was an American hip-hop group, active between the years 1992-1997 and 2004-2006.
They were great at the soul, Caribbean music, reggae, and hip hop.
They were famous because of their great song but also a controversial image, as their name came from the word "refugees" as two of them were Haitian and Lauryn is American.
Their most famous songs were Killing Me Softly, Ready or Not, and many others.
