The 24th Annual American Music Awards

The Fugees, a legendary trio composed of Wyclef Jean, Pras Michel and Ms. Lauryn Hill, crafted music that sounded like real hip-hop mixed with the perfect spice of reggae.

In the ’90s, everyone knew who The Fugees were. They’ve won many awards, including a few Grammys, not to mention boasted countless hit singles like “Ready or Not” and “Killing Me Softly.”

As the only female in the group, Lauryn Hill held her position down, rapping on the same level as her counterparts Wyclef and Pras. The trio rapped about issues of their time and had the catchiest rhymes to match.

With an unexpected G-Unit reunion and album on the way, we couldn’t help but think of other exciting reunions that could or should happen. Both The Fugees and G-Unit were well-respected at their peak, and made serious hits to remember for a lifetime.

Wouldn’t it be perfect if they could both reunite?

Here are the best reasons we need the Fugees to come back and bless our ears, one more time.

1. They were so different because they had a girl who rapped like she was one of the boys and sang like an angel.
