In honor of the 25th anniversary of their classic album ‘The Score’, Haitian-American hip hop legends Fugees will reunite for a world tour. Wyclef Jean, Pras Michel, and Lauryn Hill form this group. They are considered one of the most influential and significant alternative hip-hop bands of the 1990s. The trio will tour across the United States, to Paris and London, and finally to Ghana and Nigeria. Diaspora Calling, presented by Live Nation, is set to end at the O2 Arena on December 6. On September 22 the group will perform at a secret pop-up venue in New York.
The New York show will be filmed for Global Citizen Live, which will air on September 25. On November 2, the reunion tour will officially begin in Chicago. Fugees’ charitable fund is joining hands with Global Citizen for philanthropic activities related to the tour. Released in 1996, “The Score” yielded the hit singles “Ready or Not” and “Fu-Gee-La”. It is one of the best-selling albums of all time. In 1997 the group was disbanded so that they can pursue their individual careers. A Fugees reunion tour was held in 2004 and the band will now be reuniting again after 15 years. Hill’s feminist-rap masterpiece ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’ was released in 1998, while Pras’ pop-rap crossover smash ‘Ghetto Superstar’ was launched the same year, and Jean came out as a figurehead in the rap music industry in the twenty-first century.
