THE FUGEES 'NAPPYHEADS'
With Wyclef's Haitian presidency, his apparent opposition from Pras, and Lauryn's comeback with 'Repercussions' in the news, now would seem a timely chance to revisit one of The Fugees' finest moments.
Before their boundary-breaking 'The Score' album there was 1994's 'Blunted On Reality', and that housed this curiously absorbing gem. The quirky and slightly haunting beat held together some unconventional rhyming styles from the three MCs which was very much of the time, and which had been switched up by the advent of 'The Score', where far more reggae influences had crept in.
