Consumerism - Lauryn Hill's Prison Release Track

Lauryn Hill is announcing her release from the US penal system with a furious assault on a sick society.

Lauryn Hill is announcing her release from the US penal system with a furious assault on a sick society. “Consumerism” kicks butt. Its inspiring that prison has done nothing to dim her spirits. A message posted by Hill on her Tumblr page explains the background to the track: "Consumerism is part of some material I was trying to finish before I had to come in. We did our best to eek out a mix via verbal and emailed direction, thanks to the crew of surrogate ears on the other side. Letters From Exile is material written from a certain space, in a certain place. I felt the need to discuss the underlying socio-political, cultural paradigm as I saw it. I haven’t been able to watch the news too much recently, so I’m not hip on everything going on. But inspiration of this sort is a kind of news in and of itself, and often times contains an urgency that precedes what happens. I couldn’t imagine it not being relevant. Messages like these I imagine find their audience, or their audience finds them, like water seeking its level." consumerism

More Lauryn Hill!
