The Ave Podcast with Cal Cee. Episode 146: Fugees’ The Score @ 25
Today on The Ave Podcast, we’re calling on the spirits of Flashback Friday as we discuss one of the great albums in music history. Twenty-Five years tomorrow, The Fugees (comprised of Wyclef Jean, Lauryn Hill, and Pras) released their second album on Ruffhouse/Columbia Records “The Score”. The album was released during the height of one of the most tumultuous periods in Hip Hop yesterday, but The Score went on to not only outsell every album in it’s genre, the impact was felt way beyond North America. With the group’s stunning mastery of their own style (which was Hip Hop-R&B-Caribbean influenced at minimum), the album went on to sell over 6 million copies in the USA alone, and over 20 million worldwide. However, the group members went their separate ways (almost chaotically) & never made another follow up album to their legendary masterpiece. I’m joined by DJ Chris Nice & DJ Keo as we discuss the legendary album; inquire if Lauryn was actually the greatest talent in the last 30 years; the Fugees downfall & if successful groups are designed to last; the power of Ego; plus we share our Top 3 songs; the importance of “Killing Me Softly” for the group, and how it forever changed their careers, and so much more.
