In 2001 Lauryn Hill made her long awaited follow-up to 1998's 8x platinum, 5x Grammy-winning The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill with a highly anticipated MTV Unplugged special recorded on July 21 at MTV Studios in Times Square, New York City. The platinum release featured all new acoustic folk and soul numbers interspersed with spoken interludes about her artistic process, the music business and personal struggles. "Songs like "I Get Out" and "Mr. Intentional" are now the constructs of present-day think pieces regarding self-betterment and the clichéd meme of "letting go." Meanwhile, "Freedom Time," "The Mystery of Iniquity," and "I Find It Hard To Say (Rebel)" are literally the identical sentiments to what everyone is feeling right now. The latter of those three was the most controversial song that caused a moratorium on the release at the time, since the lyrics urged an uprising. Now we march and protest, like the song loosely suggests. And Kanye West interpolated "The Mystery of Iniquity" for his song "All Falls Down"." (Revolt).
