Must See: Lauryn Hill Pens Letter From Jail / Details Experience And Thanks Supporters

Published: Saturday 20th Jul 2013 by David

After beginning a three month prison sentence for tax evasion this month, ‘Zion’ performer Lauryn Hill has penned a letter from the establishment she’s currently being held at, detailing her experience thus far and thanking those who have supported her through her recent trials.

A minimum security facility, Hill’s time at Danbury’s Federal Correctional Institution sees her housed in a barracks type setting, and not the typical prison living arrangement many had feared she’d be forced to endure.

Read her words after the jump…

Via Tumblr:

Ms. Hill has received a lot mail, and would like to let everyone know that she is doing well. She also asked me to pass along this message:

“I have known since very young to look for the purpose and lesson in everything, including the trials. Although it has taken some adjustment, I cannot deny the favor I have encountered while in here, and general warm reception from a community of people who despite their circumstances, have found unique ways to make the best of them. Thank you for the letters of concern and well wishes that I receive in the mail every day. Although I may not be able to write everyone back, please know that they have been received, read, acknowledged, and appreciated. With Love back, MLH”

    I think we’re going to see a different lauryn when she comes out. Maybe she’ll convert to islam, so many people do whilst in prison

    • Michael July 20, 2013

      lol she only has 3 months. u act like she got 3 years

  2. Daniel Teflon July 20, 2013

    Well alright Lauryn Hill!!

  3. the real cake like lady gaga July 20, 2013

    America is the most racist society in the world. Lauryn goes to jail for tax evasion because she is black. A man shoots a defenseless black boy and gets off scotch free. Black will NEVER win in America

    • Aloys234 July 20, 2013

      Agreed.. its alright if its white!

    • we love Nicki Minaj July 20, 2013

      HOW we have a black president!

  4. Rosie July 20, 2013

    Lana would do time in the clink with more grace, tbh.

    • k July 20, 2013

      wt-f is wrong with you,i really think you are going crazy,that,s the only explanation i have for your obsessive behavior of trying to give Lana shine on every post….it,s not funny anymore it,s becoming sickening and scary.

  5. Rosie July 20, 2013

    Then again Lana would never be in the hoosegow because she is perfect. 🙂

  6. Rosie July 20, 2013

    Lauryn seems to be taking her time in the slammer in stride.

    Only in America,a messy country

    Lauryn should’ve paid her damn taxes. What makes her exempt? No one is checking for or her antics. The Zimmerman case is totally different than this one. While he should be behind bars, there’s NO comparison. She will never release another album, and that’s fine with me. •plays The Miseducation•

  9. Macy July 20, 2013

    uh…Speak for yourself, because I know I’m definitely checking for Lauryn and a new album.

    I agree, the Zimmerman case IS totally different. He KILLED somebody and got away with it, while Lauryn got thrown in jail for paying her taxes too late.

    Anyway, glad she is making it work in there.

    Yes L boogie. You got a very LOYAL fanbase. We got you.

    I sure hope she gets to make the album and release the album SHE wants to make sooner rather than later.
