1996 arrived and the rest is history. "The Score" was released and not only did their fanbase increase, they also stepped up their game, musically, all around and were better than they were in 94. "The Score" has always been a personal favorite of mine, and anytime I listen to it today, it instantly takes me back to 96. This is another album where there are classics up and down the lineup (I love to say that, lol), such as "How Many Mics", "Ready Or Not", "Killin Me Softly", "Fu-Gee-La", etc. True 5 star classic in every sense of the word.
And last but certainly not least, I haven't said much about Pras. That's no knock on him. He was fairly decent on the mic, but outside of "Ghetto Supastar", he was never able to reach the level of success he did when he was alongside Lauryn & Clef. His contributions to the group will be remembered also. Overall, the Fugees will definitely go down as one of the greatest groups of all time. Their ability to incorporate elements of hip hop, R&B/Soul, reggae, and jazz in such a creative and entertaining form was always a treat to listen to and it still is today.
