Last Lap: Lauryn Hill Heads Back To the Studio

A country music legend passes away, Snoop Lion talks about vacationing with Tupac and Suge Knight, and a new Daft Punk remix takes us back to the early days of video games.

  • Our beloved L Boogie soon might be hitting us with new music. Lauryn Hill is partnering with Sony to begin working on a new record, a deal that could help provide funds the Grammy-winner is ordered to pay in her tax case. Legal troubles aside, fans should be on standby for Hill’s first studio recordings in years. [Rolling Stone]
  • Honky-tonk legend George Jones has died in Nashville. Known for hits like “White Lightning,” the country singer began his recording career in the 1950s and announced in August 2012 that he was planning to end touring in 2013. He was 81. [CMT]
  • Ever since the internet fell in love with Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” remixes and mashups have popped up everywhere. But this one stands out, mostly because it evokes Saturday afternoons at the video game arcade. [Prefix]
  • Once upon a time, Snoop Doggy Dogg, Tupac, and Suge Knight went on a parasailing trip in Belize. Yeah, take all that in. Then head to MTV to hear Snoop (Lion) tell the tale. [MTV]
