Fresh off her brief visit to prison for failing to pay back taxes, Lauryn Hill already making new music.

“Consumerism” is the latest offering from the former Fugees singer and it’s in a different lane than traditional R&B.

Loud and aggressive, Hill takes aim at the government and American society for valuing its love of capitalism as she raps over an aggressive rock production.

With new music so far removed from the hip-hop and R&B classic The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill, only time will tell if die hard “L Boogie” fans will embrace it.
