Hip-hop heads, did you know that Nas was planned to appear on Lauryn Hill’s 1998 classic album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill?
While speaking to Complex about the making of his 1996 collaboration with Lauryn Hill – “If I Ruled The World (Imagine That)” – Nas revealed that he was originally planned to appear on Lauryn Hill’s debut solo album, but never made it to the recording session.
Although The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill features guest appearances from Carlos Santana, Mary J. Blige and D’Angelo, there are no rapping features – just imagine if Nas had a verse on that album.
Nas: I was supposed to be on the The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill album but I was caught up with whatever and I never made it to the sessions. That’s one of my greatest regrets with music. I was getting the calls to come rap on the album and something was always happening at the time when I got the call.
