2 Some Seek Stardom
Featuring everything from politics to physics, the 90s hip-hop act sold millions with The Score and brought Lauryn Hill to much deserved fame. Here are some of their finest songs. It took the erstwhile Tranzlator Crew two years to get their first album released. It was solid and occasionally spectacular music, yet possessed as much globe-conquering star quality as that of their similarly politically outspoken labelmates, the Goats. The record sold poorly but plenty on it is excellent: in particular, the second single, Nappy Heads, is a treat. It was clear from day one that Hill was special, and Some Seek Stardom remains among the finest moments of her career. The lyric is a meditation on social responsibility, hypocrisy and poverty hidden inside a narrative about artists who fail to remember where they come from and those whose craving for the limelight means they lose touch with the everyday.
