WHEN JOURNALISTS DON'T UNDERSTAND HIP-HOP SPEAK

Perhaps the stressed hacks over at Contact were just too shell-shocked and disappointed that The Fugees really are going to make a second album to pay attention to what they were saying. But there's been a terrible misunderstanding. Pras said:

"We're working on it. Clef and Lauryn's putting tracks together while I drop my solo album."

Which Contact have interpreted as meaning that Pras isn't going to bother with the solo stuff, rather than releasing it:

The former FUGEES stars have dropped their solo projects to reform the hip hop band - nine years after the group split.

Still, at least they didn't interpret "drop" any more literally - otherwise they'd have run a headline "Pras to fumble and allow record to fall to the floor."

For whatit's worth, "The Score" (1996) was Fugees' second album proper following their debut "Blunted on Reality" (1994).

I guess another Fugees album would at least save us from the pain of a Wyclef Jean solo effort. For a little while anyway.
