The Fugees – Ready or Not Anniversary:
The Fugees – Ready or Not Anniversary. “Ready or Not” dropped on August 29th and was produced by Wyclef, Lauryn Hill, Pras and Jerry Duplessis off Ruffhouse. The Fugees’ song sampled “Boadicea” by Enya who had prepared to file suit after the songs success. They were all able to hammer out a settlement that prevented it from ever going to court. The song also sampled “Ready or Not Here I Come (Can’t Hide from Love)” by Delfonics for the chorus.
There were other singles off the album that had more commercial success such as “Fu-Gee-La”, “Killing Me Softly” & “No Woman, No Cry”, but “Ready or Not” started a new era of movie like hip-hop videos. The video featured sharks, explosions, helicopters, and cost around 1.3 mil to make.
