Early Friday morning, Lauryn Hill , front lady of the Fugees , was released from a minimum-security federal prison up in Connecticut. She's served her three months for her tax-evasion conviction; now for three months of home confinement as part of a year of probation.

With all the troubles Ms. Lauryn Hill, (as she insists) has put herself through, nothing matters except how she sounds, and that she sounds at all. A tax-evasion prison stint, missed recording deadlines, showing up late for gigs - these mean little when it comes to the continuing adventures in the Miseducation of Lauryn Hill (to quote the 1998 multi-platinum solo album from the onetime Fugee). Before Hill's show Saturday at the Electric Factory with opener/friend the socio-conscious MC Talib Kweli, the question was: What would she sound like?

Maybe Lauryn Hill - or, excuse me, Ms. Lauryn Hill, as the Fugees singer, rapper, and songwriter who played a sold-out show Saturday at the House of Blues in Atlantic City now calls herself - is just a genius of expectation management. When Hill showed up three hours late for a show in New York at the start of her 2011 comeback tour this month, it didn't seem like such a good PR move. Word of Web instantly went from excitement at the long- awaited return of arguably the greatest combination singer-MC in hip-hop history, all but unheard from since 1998's landmark The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill , to how-could-you-be-so-arrogant irritation.

It was perhaps no surprise that a tour billed as Life Is Good/Black Rage was rife with contradiction. Named for, respectively, hip-hop godhead Nas' latest studio record and a new song (and expected album) from reclusive hip-hop/soul royalty Ms. Lauryn Hill, the tour's sold-out Philly stop was packed despite a chilly mix of snow and spitting rain. Nas, the 39-year-old Queens, N.Y., rapper whose classic 1994 debut Illmatic is spoken of in hushed tones, is touring on his tenth album, Life Is Good , released in July.

Lauryn drops Israeli show Lauryn Hill has canceled her Tel Aviv concert, scheduled for Thursday, but the outspoken artist has no intention of boycotting Israel, as some have claimed. Hill says she scrubbed the show because she was unable to set up a corresponding concert in Palestinian territory. "My intention was to perform in both Tel Aviv and Ramallah," Hill says on Facebook. Hill says it's important to her to play for both communities because she wants to "be a presence supporting justice and peace.

Let's hear it for the girls! That was the message ringing loud and clear at last night's 41st annual Grammys. Lauryn Hill, Celine Dion, Sheryl Crow, Brandy & Monica, the Dixie Chicks and Alanis Morissette all scored big in categories usually won by men at the music awards ceremony. Why, even perennial also-ran Madonna walked off with an armful. Call it compensation for past wrongs, a big nod and thank you to the expanding base of female music buyers who support their own, and a belated appreciation for female artists' mission of "getting in touch" with their (and our)

She sings, she raps, she high-steps across the floor in six-inch heels while belting out Stevie Wonder's "Sir Duke"! And she does it all with a higher purpose in mind: Lauryn Hill began offstage at the first of two sold-out shows at the Tower Theater in Upper Darby on Sunday, giving voice to hopes of healing with Bob Marley's "Redemption Song. " She ended the show nearly two hours later with her own universalist anthem, "Everything Is Everything," rhyming "where hip-hop meets Scripture" with "develop a negative into a positive picture" and urging her wildly enthusiastic, largely female fans to "stay strong.

It's been two years since the Fugees released The Score, the Afro-Caribbean-influenced mix of hip-hop and Roberta Flack and Bob Marley remakes that has sold more than 1O million copies worldwide. According to their label, Conshohocken's Ruffhouse Records, the members of the North Jersey trio haven't all been in the same room for over a year - about the time The Score finally fell off the charts. So much for an imminent follow-up CD. Yet the group's impact on the pop world is greater than ever.

THE MUSIC THAW is upon us, as tour buses dig out and get back on the road. Honestly, there's so much to see and hear that these picks are just icing on the cake - but at least not on the roads. We're excited about the intimate next coming of Lauryn Hill, the passionate and most unpredictable of neo-soul chanteuses. At another extreme, we're left to ponder whether Taylor Swift has the stage moves to reach and captivate a stadium full of fans (let alone two stadiums full). Pink and Katy Perry she hasn't been, but, come on, girl, surprise us. Ben Folds' three-day/three-venue residency is a clever idea.

Singer Lauryn Hill is facing the wrath of the federal government: The U.S. Attorney's Office in Newark, N.J., has charged the former Fugees singer with three counts of willfully failing to file income-tax returns.

Hill, who lives in South Orange, N.J., must appear in federal court June 29. She faces up to one year in prison and a $100,000 fine for each count.
