Dear Lauryn Hill, Rohan Wasn’t It Anyway

Soooo I just heard that Lauryn Hill got left by Rohan Marley for a Brazilian model (story’s here). My first thought was that maybe he’s sick of having to rummage through an entire closet to get to her love pocket. I’m just saying. Lauryn has earned this sternly-worded letter.

Dear Lauryn Hill,

Hey girl hey. I know you’re prolly going through something right now, seeing as how you just got dumped and all but I wanted to talk to you. I figured your friends weren’t so why not give it a try?

First, I hope you realize that your ex-man, Rohan Marley wasn’t shit. Not one single Iota of one. You should have known this when he left his wife for you and made few attempts (that we know of) to marry you instead. That was the first clue. But then a few weeks back when he REALLY showed his ass… you shoulda packed up your Dereon duffle and left.

The minute he tweeted talmbout he’ont know who the daddy of your 6th kid was when I knew he really was a jackass. Just disrespectful. The moment my man tweet some shit talmbout “I mean, I know she’s prego but why you think it’s mine” is the moment we’re done. He ain’t bout to disrespect ME in front of 7,000 of my closest stranger friends like that. I know that damb murch. Shid.

Lauryn Hill Clown

Girl… O___O

I just hope Rohan leaving gets you to make better music. And stop wearing your entire closet as one #alphet. That’s ALL I hope. Lauryn, if you were my friend, I’da called you up and said “Hey girl hey. Rohan wasn’t shit no way. Now let’s go getchu some clothes.” And then we’d put on our “F*ck him, girl” dresses on and go clubbing. I’da been there. Cuz that’s the type of shallow person I am..

You are LAURYN HILL! Lauryn MUFUGGIN Hill! Come on!

You need to cry two tears in a bucket and record them tears in a studio. This could be your opportunity for GREAT music.

Iunno what is in Marley sperm that makes women lose their minds but them roaming the Earth sowing their seeds is as common as them having locs. You Knew Rohan wasn’t bout that life from Day 1. He ain’t worth a penny with a hole in it. Back in 1998, you coulda had any man you wanted. But you got Island Dickmatized and that’s ALL she wrote. IT AIN’T WORF IT, LAU’N!

Mmhmm, but you chose to mess with a rasta and I’ont think you were ready for it. I can’t mess with no real rastas, man. That ganja they smoke is prolly so strong it ends up in their liquids. That’s the kinda stuff that has you babysitting your enemy’s kids willingly. Nawl. Mess with a rasta and find yourself washing dishes with a scarf on your head and no shoes on. Next thing you know, you don sold ALL your possessions and moved to Jamo. uh uh. That ain’t MY portion!

That’s how he gotchu, huh, Lauryn? You shoulda known Island peen ain’t for the faint of heart. You need a strong support system to keep you from moving into that man’s mama’s house otherwise… this is the kinda stuff that ends up happening.

Lauryn Hill

What happened to THIS Lauryn? I miss her. :-/

“Emanticipate yourself from mental slavery.” Lauryn, you SANG these words yourself on “Redemption song”. Then became a slave to Rohan’s peen. THIS AIN’T WHAT LIFE’S ABOUT!!! That’s the ONLY reason I could see you leaving after winning like 57 Grammys, just to go lay up and be his concubine. Girl…

I’ve said it before but I will repeat. Behind every relationship with an Aint Shit dude and an amazing woman is DOPE peen. Everytime.

BTW, I know nothing bout island peen. I’ve just heard from a friend. Or thru Twitter. Or on Wikipedia. O__O

#Ennehweighs #doe, I be telling folks. Old Lauryn is dead and gone. We can all search under those 4 hoodies, 5 pairs of pants and 2 sunglasses but she ain’t there. I’ve held out hope that you gon bring back OLD LAURYN but I think that’s a wrap. But I’m hoping with Rohan gone, you can get a shadow of that old self back. I’ONT WANNA LOSE ALL HOPE YET!!! Just come back and make good music again. In regular clothes. Is that too much to ask?

Anyway, girl. Lemme go listen to some “Miseducation” so I can remember how dope you once were.

I still lowkey love you,


P.S. F*ck him girl, f*ck him.

Do y’all miss old Lauryn Hill too?

    “We can all search under those 4 hoodies, 5 pairs of pants and 2 sunglasses but she ain’t there.”

    Sadness! My question is, how does Lauryn not get a heat stroke with all those damn layers??

    Btw, i love the blog!

    • July 21, 2011 at 9:06 pm

      Right! She was at Rock the Bells with all those clothes on. Maam, it’s summer. SMH. Oh Lauryn…

  3. July 21, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    New to your blog, this is by far the best open letter I’ve read. Too funny.

    • July 21, 2011 at 9:05 pm

      Welcome to my eCrib!!! And thanks a bunches! 😀

  4. July 21, 2011 at 7:44 pm

    If that Island Peen gon’ have me dressing like a Peruvian strawberry picker on national TV, Ion’t want none. None at all.

    Even if you don’t come back Lauryn, I’m still rootin’ for you girl. Have fun being free and raising your many youngins.

    You know that scene in Moonstruck where Cher slaps the dogsh*t outta Nick Cage and yells, “Snap outta it!!!”… Yeah. That.

    Go get ya girl, Luvvie. She been needed this intervention!

    • July 21, 2011 at 9:04 pm

      LMAO!!! YES! This is my verbal face slap to Lauryn.

  6. July 21, 2011 at 8:05 pm

    I was dead and done when you said, “That’s the kinda stuff that has you babysitting your enemy’s kids willingly. Nawl.”

    I OFFICIALLY CAIN’T stand you, Luvvie! My soul is weeping and laughing at the same time…

    YES (to answer) your question…I do miss Lauryn. Her voice captured me from the beginning…and held me when I saw “Sister Act 2”. I pray for her return to glory! ::humming “Tell Him”::

    • July 21, 2011 at 9:03 pm

      YOU LOVE ME, KWEEN! lolol YESSS I fell in love w/ Lauryn in Sister Act 2. One of my fave movies ever.

    Lawd… Look at that pic of Lauryn when she was a beautiful goddess repping for us chocolate, and then look at that Bozo the Clown pic when people really had to accept there was something seriously off in her spirit. It’s so sad to me to see all these women lose their mind behind some good good. I’d be scared to use a Marleys bathroom as that might make you lose yourself.. come out the mother of 2 with a unibrow.

    • July 21, 2011 at 9:03 pm

      Wasn’t she FAHN back then? W/ those gorgeous locs and dope skin. Now she wants to look a good fool rocking red blush and them spider arms as lashes. SMH

    I loved the unplugged cd. Wasn’t the old lauryn, but I have a feeling it was the Lauryn, if that makes any sense. I still love Miseducation but also have my unplugged moods too.

    Rohan that’s a whole nutha story, I mean… nevermind #minuswell not go there u already said it all… lol

    • July 21, 2011 at 9:01 pm

      She screeched thru Unplugged so I can’t e’em support it too murch. She shoulda kept that album as a late night performance for house guests.

    Rohan and his Rasta sperm is doing the most to and fro (what DOES to and fro really mean?).

    I think Rohan left her because he’s tired of waiting for her to get dressed. Anyone wearing that many clothes must take lots of time, and makes them late to any function. He feels like the ticket holders at her shows feel…frustrated waiting for her to get dressed and make her appearance.

    Maybe the Brazilian girlfriend gets dressed in a hurry.

    2 words…You Stupid!!!!! I mean that in the best possible way. In that pic she looks like she has Erika Badu’s Bag Lady stuck in her head. LMBO! Didn’t island peen have Terry Mcmillan marrying a gay man, who looked as gay as Star Jone’s ex-husband, pretending he was straight. That was some great peen if he pulled that off. LMBO again!!!

    “You are LAURYN HILL! Lauryn MUFUGGIN Hill! Come on!”

    YES, YES!! Until now all I could say about our beloved Lauryn was RIP, cuz i never thought we would see the real Lauryn ever again. But hope is alive! Now that Rohan (aka “He ain’t sh*t man”) has dumped her and made her have to kick the peen addiction, maybe just maybe she will come back to the light. Come back Lauryn. We miss u!!!

  13. July 22, 2011 at 1:14 am

    Lauryn, Halle and JLo need to get together and write a book called “It ain’t easy being pretty”

  14. July 22, 2011 at 4:32 am

    I still believe that somewhere behind that clown gettup is LBoogie. She is trying to hide it,with makeup that my 2 year old niece wouldn’t approve of,but she is there.

    She has to make a comeback.How is she planning on feeding 6 kids?Also didn’t Miseducation come out after the Fugees broke up because she was messing with the very married Wyclef?

    • seph
      July 25, 2011 at 4:00 pm

      not only that but wyclef actually said he went to the hospital when zion was born because he thought it was his kid…..and lauryn never said anything o.0 i hate to say it but jboogie was always a hotmess when it came to men :/

  15. July 22, 2011 at 10:52 am

    Poor Lauyrn! God help her. It’s terrible what a broken heart can do to you. Girl, look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself that you are worth more than that. Pull yourself together and don’t let Rohan win! You ned Jesus! Come back!

  16. July 22, 2011 at 11:40 am

    I loved the unplugged. *shrugs* but all them layers she be wearin tho? o__O

    A penny with a hole in it… Hi behavior is wrong on so many levels. L-boogie is broken? I’m thinking imbalance– on some ” A Beautiful Mind” type stuff. I would pass on a FREE ticket; her attendance and performance record is awful.

    The letter is on point.

    Luvvie, how in all thee hell on Gawds green #Earf do you come up with this stuff? I think you been out back hittin’ a lick with Rohan Marley. Don’t let me find out.

    I’m glad someone called out Lau’n for wearing 12 layers of clothes, none of them matching, and sweating like a child in a third world country on stage. Gwarl, it’s hot!! Shed some of them layers.

    I’ve never been a huge fan of Lauryn (and forgive me, but I don’t get the hype), but she does need to pull herself together. Because I would rather listen to her than 92.7% of the bullshit out now. Plus she needs to provide for them babies cause Rohan and rasta peen have surely moved on to dickmatize someone else.

  21. July 22, 2011 at 6:24 pm

    I didn’t want this letter to end. I’m laughin so hard my damn stomach hurts. Imma go read it again.

  22. legitimate_soul
    July 22, 2011 at 8:45 pm

    Yes, I miss her and I am glad you told the truth. She need to have a “by herself” meeting and read the lyrics of “That Thing” to herself. That Island D had her stop being the beautiful person that attracted him and everyone else in the first place. I thought she had said she didn’t like herself then, and that possibly (if that is true) allowed her to get caught up. I have hope she’ll come back stronger.

    Luvvie! You owe me a glass of chocolate milk. I spit mine up when I read this. “That ganja they smoke is prolly so strong it ends up in their liquids.” and “You shoulda known Island peen ain’t for the faint of heart.'”

    In fact this whole post just kilt me. Lmao

    Lauryn Hill just needs to concentrate on making the world fall back in love with her. If I recall Rohan Marley fell in love with her like the rest of the world did; he was smitten. I think I read/heard somewhere he said he liked the way she held her guitar. So if she gets back to old LBOOGIE it’ll be like Wyclef who? Rohan who? And she’ll have new love interests even with six kids.

    She and Mos Def would look dope together!!!!

  35. August 3, 2011 at 1:40 pm

    He most certainly had her turned out some sorta way…I didn’t realized she is 6 kids deep. I think the last name Marley should’ve tipped her off from the get, but I always felt she was with him because he’s a Marley. I agree with you that she need an ambush stealth ninja makeover of the worst kind. It may take weeks with all those clothes LOL

    OMG! Island peen! I was not ready! Take me now lord. I saw her in ATL at Center Stage and not only was she 17 hrs late..she had on what appeared to be a picnic cloth..hair half braided..and looked like a refuge..not a FUGEE..a refuge, yo! Like all of Plato’s Closet threw up on her body and said “have a nice day, ho”. Twas a sad sad site indeed. Where are her people? Why has she not been in Intervention on A&E cause dickmatization is a real thing?

    As funny as this article was as a woman who has had experience with island peen (Im talking straight Jamaican) the shit is no joke. You do crazy things you would never do otherwise. I was in Lauryn’s same shoes. Im too damn awesome for this ain’t shit Jamaican man but damn if that peen don’t keep me mesmerized. Two years I stuck with the bull. But then I said no more! Since then I have joined IPA (Island Peen Anonymous) meetings because I know I just can’t handle it. The sad part is I hale FROM the damn Caribbean. So who can really handle that peen then if not the islands own women?
