About Fugees / The Score
Originally released on February 13, 1996 (on Ruffhouse/Columbia Records), The Score was the second (and final) studio album from Fugees, a revolutionary alternative hip-hop group comprised of rapper/singer/producer Lauryn Hill, rapper/singer/producer Wyclef Jean and rapper/producer Pras Michel. The follow-up to Blunted on Reality, the Fugees' moderately successful 1994 debut album, The Score--with its visionary mix of hip-hop, soul, reggae, audacious sampling and cinematic aural textures--became an indomitable force in pop music and culture, a landmark of hip-hop and a soundtrack for the decade.
The Score peaked at #1 on both the Billboard 200 and the Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums charts, has achieved 6x RIAA platinum status and brought home a pair of Grammys including Best Rap Album and Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals (for "Killing Me Softly"). The Score's reputation has only grown over the years with many music critics and publications citing it as one of the greatest albums of the 1990s as well as one of the most influential and important hip-hop albums ever made.
