Former Fugee and semi-recluse Lauryn Hill launched her "intimate North American tour" late last month in Boston and then came down to the Big Apple for six nights of packed performances. And wouldn't you know it, videos of her shows are hitting the YouTubes.

Besides a recent disastrous show in Vermont, there has been some scuttlebutt over the fact that Hill is performing stuff off her seminal The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill a bit differently but we can't say we mind. We're just happy to have her back. She'll be playing at the House of Blues in Atlantic City on 1/29 and in Montclair, NJ on 2/4 (there's also a soldout 2/1 performance at the Highline Ballroom, which is rescheduled from last December).
