Lauryn Hill's debut album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill had an undeniable impact on the culture and still feels relevant 20 years later. Her highly-acclaimed song, "Ex-Factor" was even recently sampled on both Drake's "Nice For What" and Cardi B's "Be Careful."
As 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of the classic album, Hill has announced a North American tour to celebrate, Pitchfork reports. The announcement comes fresh off of a flawless performance at Nina Simone's Hall of Fame induction ceremony, according to The Fader.
On Twitter, fans were hyped!

Some people couldn't resist a chance to throw a little shade, however:
Like no tea, but aren’t all her tours the Miseducation of Lauryn Hill tours? Like she only got one album? https://t.co/4Muojl5MM2

Please tweet when you buy your Lauryn Hill tickets so I can set an alert to check on how that went for you. This should prove an interesting tour.

Lauryn Hill is doing a tour she won’t show up to. People in the audience will have to get up and perform. Girl, Issa no.
