Lauryn Hilll was sentenced to three months in prison, plus a $60,000 fine yesterday…However, before she was given her sentence Lauryn compared taxes to slavery in a note she read before the court.
Lauryn Hill explained,
"I was put into a system I didn't know the nature of. I'm a child of former slaves. I got into an economic paradigm and had that imposed on me. I sold 50 million units. Now I'm up here paying a tax debt. If that's not likened to slavery, I don't know what is."
