Lauryn Hill Makes $1 Million Deal with Sony Music to Avoid Prison





As a way to avoid going to prison due to tax evasion charges, Lauryn Hill has committed to a $1 million deal with Sony Music to create five new songs.


After not paying federal taxes for a $1.8 million income she earned between 2005 and 2007, the former Fugee member owes the government roughly $504,000.


Due to a delay of sentencing, the singer/lyricist has until May 6th to pay up or she may face three years in prison. Luckily, Sony came to the rescue.


Unfortunately, Hill has yet to make any music.

Whats messed up is she sucked so bad on her last little tour, her audience might not care to hear from her. She only did one album that wasn't all. Sure she had some great originals on there but that doesn't account for a touring catalog. She gone make some songs? For that type of money Sony should expect a album with a hit on it.
