The big deal helped her from avoiding jail time, which she was supposed to start last month for tax evasion.
Lauryn’s first song from the deal, called “Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)” gives us a taste of that throwback L Boogie we all know and love.
She starts off the track strong by coming in with her first verse at a fast pace, and keeps it up throughout.
Lauryn wrote about the new song on her Tumblr page as well:
Hello All: Here is a link to a piece that I was ‘required’ to release immediately, by virtue of the impending legal deadline. I love being able to reach people directly, but in an ideal scenario, I would not have to rush the release of new music… but the message is still there. In light of Wednesday’s
tragic loss (of former label mate Chris Kelly), I am even more pressed to YELL this to a multitude that may not understand the cost of allowing today’s unhealthy paradigms to remain unchecked! – MLH
It looks like the Lauryn fans are going to be overwhelmed with new music, even if it’s not exactly the way they wanted it!
