The acoustic MTV Unplugged No.2.0 double album from Lauryn Hill came nearly four years after the first solo album and gives an insight in her deeper thoughts and emotions about her life, artist, the judicial system (in 'Mystery Of Iniquity') and spiritual side. Lengthy intros, conversations and deeply personal songs like 'Conquering Lion' accompanied with her acoustic guitar, with the audience add to the intimate performance in her typical raspy voice.
The album debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 and her song 'Mystery Of Iniquity' was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Female Rap Solo Performance and used as an interpolation by Kanye West for his single 'All Falls Down'. Great acoustic songs like 'Adam Lives In Theory', 'Oh Jerulasem' and 'I Gotta Find Peace Of Mind' complete the album. MTV Unplugged No 2.0 was her last album and pressed in limited quantities. This reissue comes just in time for it's 15th year anniversary in 2017.
