When Lauryn Hill first appeared in the spotlight over a decade ago, she was a breath of fresh air.

The New Jersey born artist was a dark-skinned beauty with limitless talent. She represented all that is classic about hip-hop – innovation, fearlessness and magnetic presence.

Her style reflected her diverse character also – her look was equal parts ‘hood savvy, earthy and glamorous.

Fast forward to today. Take a look at Lauryn performing in Oakland, California last week:

It was reported Lauryn fell on stage during this show, as she had at a previous concert in Las Vegas.

The contrast is so drastic, we just had to put it out there. Maybe Lauryn needs hip-hop as much as it needs her?

    Oh my God! I can not believe that is Lauryn Hill, looking a hot mess. she was so pretty back in the day. what’s wrong with her is she on drugs,the reason she keeps falling on stage? I hope she gets herself together fast,before it’s too late to do so.

    she still looks beautiful and she has a great body for a mother of 4, i think she must loose the wig. that is a beautiful picture up there killer legs i must admit, why is she hiding that goergeous body. Rastafarian lifestyle can really fuck up your brain.

    THAT IS A HOT PICTURE UP THERE I LOVE IT, ITS FIRE, SHE LOOKS AMAZING. LAURYN HAS GOT NATURAL BEAUTY AND SEX APPEAL I WONDER WHAT IS HOLDING HER BACK. IF THE OLD LAURYN COULD COME BACK SHE COULD PUT ALL THESE NEW SO CALLED DIVAS TO SHAME. ITS AMAZING SHE STILL HAS THE SAME BODY EVEN AFTER 4 KIDS PICTURES ON ESSENCE FEB ISSUE 2006 (AMAZING BODY) I ALSO DO NOT LIKE THE WIG TOO, SHE EVEN LOOKS BETTER WITH SHORT NATURAL HAIR THAN THAT WIG.
