It seems that Jazz musician and producer Robert Glasper has some issues with Lauryn Hill that he addressed during an interview Monday (Aug. 13) on The Madd Hatta Morning Show on 97.9 in Houston. In his ten-minute blow up, Glasper claimed Hill steals music, disrespects her bands and doesn’t know how to tune a guitar.
Glasper’s comments came in response to a question about managing egotistical personalities as a producer. He named Hill and criticized her treatment of him during rehearsals for a gig in 2008. The pianist said the former Fugee frequently changed arrangements, demanded she be addressed as “Ms. Hill” and never looked at directly in the eye, and threatened to cut the band’s payment in half. He eventually explained his frustration stems from his belief that Hill “stole” credit for her Grammy-winning 1998 album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.
