A judge has reportedly given the newly released Lauryn Hill permission to postpone her mandatory in-home detention and go on tour.
As part of Lauryn Hill’s sentence for tax evasion, the rapper-actress was required to complete three months of home detention. Now, just one week after getting out of prison and serving a three month sentence, Hill is planning a tour where she will revitalize her music career.
TMZ reports that Hill requested to go on tour from November 15 through December 31, and that a judge has given her the green light.
Hill will be required to seek approval for each stop of the tour from her probation officer, and will have to serve the remainder of her home detention sentence after the tour concludes.
Hill’s tour plans come shortly after the release of her latest song, titled “Consumerism,” which addresses corporate greed, racism and imperialism. The song was reportedly finished through a series of phone calls Hill made during her 3- month stint in jail. (Sounds exactly like what Lil Wayne did with his album.)
Glad to see a musical icon free from behind bars, and moving forward. Hopefully Lauryn stays on this good foot.
