After renaming themselves the Fugees (a term of derision, short for refugees, which was usually used to describe Haitian immigrants).
No matter how pigeonholed the Fugees may have sounded on their debut, the group had obviously asserted their control by the time of their second album, The Score.

 Fugees - Greatest Hits CD review on AudioRevolution.com
From this rearview mirror perspective, the Fugees were closer to a temporary all-star intersection than a naturally organic group.
Just as its members quickly outgrew the constricting group confines of the Fugees, the hip-hop genre was also never big or strong enough to contain these diverse and eclectic individuals.
The Fugees’ music was built upon mostly minimalist bass and drums, which is a foundation that might sound frustratingly barren in other contexts, but was more than enough accompaniment here.

 The Fugees - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Fugees are a critically acclaimed American music band, popular during the mid-1990s, whose repertoire includes primarily hip hop, with elements of soul, and Caribbean music (particularly reggae).
The Fugees were known for their unusual choice of covers and sampling sources on both albums; The Score, for example, included reinterpretations of "No Woman No Cry" (Bob Marley and the Wailers) and "Killing Me Softly (With His Song)" (Roberta Flack), which was their biggest pop hit.
The Fugees have continuously thanked and praised Enya for her deep understanding of the situation, for example in the booklet for the album "The Score".

In the basement is where the Fugee sound began, and today, the basement is where it's still created even as it reaches out into the world.
In the meantime, the Fugees toured the globe, perfecting their skills while splashing their ragga-rock and roll flavored, poetic gospel into the minds of new apostles, laying the ground work for their latest album, The Score "It is an audio film is how Lauryn describes the scope of the group's sophomore long-player.
The Fugees ARE hip hop: proud, loud, original, sincere, funky fresh (on the beat side), dope (on the rhyme and lyrics side), fearless, beautiful and fearsome.

Though the group's debut album, Blunted on Reality, was quite solid, it reflected a prevailing gangsta stance that may have been forced by the record label.

After an eight-year hiatus, innovative hip-hop supergroup the Fugees reunited and performed at a secret show organized by comedian Dave Chappelle over the weekend in Brooklyn.
Hill was originally the only Fugee on the slate of performers, but murmurs that a reunion was in the works surfaced in the hours leading up to the show.
The reunion is the Fugees' first since disbanding following the release of their 1996 monster hit sophomore album, The Score, which sold more than 17 million copies and won the group two Grammys.

The popularity of the Fugees was also a product of their message.
Wyclef told SonicNet that a future Fugees LP was being discussed by the trio depending on schedules - but its unlikely to happen by the end of the year.

They've had their fair share of ups and downs in the past 9 years but the members of super group The Fugees have brushed aside personal issues to reform and release their first material since 1996.
Their sophomore album "The Score" was the biggest selling hip-hop album of all time back when it was released, so as expected high hopes rest on this upcoming offering.
The Fugees, comprising members Lauryn Hill, Wycleff Jean and Pras, were signed in 1993 and released their debut album "Blunted On Reality" soon after.

All but abandonning the fiercely, ferociously energetic sound of "Blunted" for a softer feel, the Fugees pulled off the hardest trick in the book: they kept the respect of the faithful and conquered the charts simultaneously, leaving as their legacy the best East-Coast hip-hop album of the 1990's.
The internal machinations of the Fugees story have yet to be layed candidly bare in the same manner as the dealings of Death Row have been, and thus reasons behind the radical change that hit with "The Score" just over eighteen months after "Blunted" are still unclear.
Whilst maintaining the clever commentary on ghetto life, the 'Hatian' content of the album was cut, taking away at a stroke many of the racial issues that the group had.

After 1994's "Blunted On Reality" passed by almost unnoticed, the Fugees pulled themselves together, seemingly matured by ten years and really knuckled down throughout 1995 - the result of which was The Score.
This was the song that made the Fugees international superstars, and Lauryn brings something to the song that Roberta Flack never could originally.

As gangster rap, with the likes of Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Tupac, dominated mainstream rap, the Fugees offered an alternative to those listeners who did not want every song to be about graphic violence and crime (although some of their songs still deal with similar subject matter).
The fact is, the Fugees, for the most part, did not write a bad song.
Therefor, the Fugees can hardly be hald responsible for the tracks that made the final cut.

With all the music that’s come out since, you should really be able to figure out by now what Wyclef did in the group, what Lauryn did in the group.
That’s why in the song I say, “Sometimes when I sleep, when I wake up / I kinda hope the Fugees didn’t break up.” So from a negative, I was able to flip it into a positive.
Some people have sort of blamed you for the Fugees breaking up, as far as you not being considerate for Lauryn’s feelings and things like that.
