Jazz Artist Robert Glasper Says Lauryn Hill Is Shady

259

On Wednesday, the jazz pianist opened up about working with Lauryn Hill during an interview on “The Madd Hatta Morning Show” on Houston’s KBXX, and accused the singer of being shady with her payment of musicians and using their music without giving credit.

“We rehearse a whole week, maybe 10 hours a day,” he said, describing working with Hill on a show she was paid half-a-million dollars for. “Every day she comes in and changes the show, changes what she wants to do. Completely. The last rehearsal, she doesn’t show up. Her manager shows up and says, ‘Lauryn’s not really feeling the way you guys have been learning the music, so we’re gonna cut your pay in half.’ The last rehearsal. The day before the show. ‘We’re gonna cut your pay in half.’”

Glasper went on to accuse Hill, 43, of firing musicians on a whim, saying she’d hold auditions upon arrival in a city even if she had already been touring with a band.

Most notably, Glasper claimed that Hill stole some of the music featured on her classic album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, and passed it off as her own.

“You can’t come into a situation, especially when you’ve already stolen all my friend’s music,” he said. “’Miseducation’ was made by great musicians and producers that I know, personally. So you got a big head off of music you didn’t even write.”
