I definitely feel what Ladiemecca is saying, and i agree. If this "THEM" project is like a big collaboration of all the intellegent soulful artists affiliated with hiphop/R&B or whatever, then Lauryn Hill would honestly come to mind. But then again it isnt my group so...whatever.

I do think that alot of people have been less than reluctant to give Lauryn her full props because the people who usually disregard hiphop as an valuable artform have put her in a high chair. Kind of ironic.
