LAURYN HILL is not wasting any time getting back on her music grind after her recent release from prison due to charges of TAX EVASION!!!
Check out the Official Lyrical Visuals for brand-spankin' new track, CONSUMERISM.
Seeing the lyrics spelled out here definitely helps to understand some of the points that she is trying to make in the song.
The imagery chosen to serve as the backdrop for the words (flashes of riots, uprisings, protests, jewelry stores and mass consumption of goods are all at play here) drives home her point that the world is drowning in a sea of, well; CONSEMERISM.
