Lauryn Hill has released one solo album, 1998's The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.
It was the first Hip Hop album (and one of only two) to win a Grammy for Album Of The Year.
Lauryn Hill still performs. But it's been almost 20 years since her debut album and she still hasn't tried to follow up on its tremendous success.

Her former Fugees mate Pras explained why in an interview with Vlad TV.
“She just felt uninspired. I’m going to say this to you. Some people money is a driving force for them. For her, money isn’t a driving force for her. If she had a billion dollars, if she had one dollar she would’ve done it the exact same way….When she says she wasn’t…she’s been uninspired she means that. This is a woman who she has to feel inspired to create, and if she doesn’t feel inspired she’s not going to create. Because that’s what she gets her source of energy from. When we did ‘The Score’ we were inspired from what was happening. You talking Snoop, Pac, Jay, Biggie, Total; you had so much great sh-t happening that we were like we want to get in that game. Let’s bring something to the game. Let’s bring The refugee Fugees style to the table,” said Pras.Maybe Hill should pay a little more attention to money; in 2013 she spent three months in prison for tax evasion.
