Lauren Hill Released From Prison
Lauryn Hill marked her scheduled release from federal prison on tax evasion charges on Friday by releasing a new single.
The 38-year-old former singer for the Fugees started serving a three-month sentence in July after pleading guilty to tax evasion.
She marked her pending release with the release of new song Consumerism.
She began serving the sentence in early July at the minimum security Federal Correction Institution in Danbury, Connecticut.
Hill will be on parole for a year following her release with the first three months under house arrest.
After pleading guilty Hill had her initial sentence of one year in prison reduced after she asked for leniency due to her charity work and estrangement from the music industry.
