The Fugees burst on the scene in 1994. Came out with a classic album in 1996. And like that, they were gone. It’s 21 years later, and some fans are still holding out hope that the gang might get back together. That definitely doesn’t seem like it will be the case, but we do have something like the next best thing. Yesterday (July 15), Funkmaster Flex flexed a little by pulling an unreleased song from the trio out of the stash and playing it during his show.

The song sounds like it could have been originally released yesterday, with no real glaring aspects that date the busy production. Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean and Pras are spitting just like old times.

It is unclear exactly when the song was made. But according to Lauryn Hill, it is official. The former Fugees front woman hopped on Twitter to co-sign the authenticity of the record. “The ‘new’ Fugees song is indeed an old track played around with back in the day in the lab,” she announced. “Not sure who leaked it, but I have my suspicions.”

As for Ms. Hill, she will be heading out on tour with Nas in September. Starting on Sept. 7 in Chicago, the jaunt will hit up 17 cities including Toronto, Boston, Houston, Miami, Los Angeles and more before closing out on Oct. 10 in Vancouver. Special guests at selected dates will be comedian Hannibal Buress and reggae artist Chronixx.
