Past members

Fugees were an American hip hop group who rose to fame in the mid-1990s. Their repertoire included elements of hip hop, soul and Caribbean music, particularly reggae. The members of the group were rapper/singer/producer Wyclef Jean, rapper/singer/producer Lauryn Hill, and rapper Pras Michel. Deriving their name from the term refugee, Jean is Haitian, while Pras and Hill are American.

The group recorded two albums together: their debut Blunted on Reality in 1994 and the multi-platinum and Grammy-winning success The Score in 1996. The latter includes their hit single "Killing Me Softly". The group disbanded in 1997 to work on their solo careers. Hill and Jean each went on to successful solo recording careers, where as Michel focused on soundtrack recordings and acting. The group shortly reformed in 2004 and 2005.
