Lauryn Hill has the perfect idea for a coming-out party -- she’s releasing a new single.

The former Fugees singer is due to leave jail today, three months after her imprisonment for tax evasion. To mark the occasion, she’s dropping the song Consumerism. It’s a brutal track where Hill speed-raps through the full gamut of society’s mad ways. Consumerism was written before Hill's incarceration, and mixed while she was locked-up.

Read it at Billboard.
