180g Audiophile Double LP Features "Mystery Of Iniquity," "Oh Jerusalem" & "The Conquering Lion!"
Lauryn Hill is best known for being a member of The Fugees and for her critically acclaimed solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, which won numerous awards, broke several sales records and was listed by Rolling Stone as one of the greatest albums of all time.
The acoustic MTV Unplugged No. 2.0 double album from Lauryn Hill came nearly 4 years after the first solo album and gives an insight in her deeper thoughts and emotions about her life, artist, the judicial system (in "Mystery Of Iniquity") and spiritual side. Lengthy intros, conversations and deeply personal songs like "Conquering Lion" accompanied with her acoustic guitar, with the audience add to the intimate performance in her typical raspy voice.
The album debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 and her song "Mystery Of Iniquity" was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Female Rap Solo Performance and used as an interpolation by Kanye West for his single "All Falls Down". Great acoustic songs like "Adam Lives In Theory", "Oh Jerulasem" and "I Gotta Find Peace Of Mind" complete the album.
MTV Unplugged No 2.0 was her last album and pressed in limited quantities. This reissue comes just in time for its 15th year anniversary in 2017.
