The Fugees are a critically acclaimed music band from the United States, popular during the mid-1990s, whose repertoire includes primarily hip hop, with elements of soul, and Caribbean music (particularly reggae). The members of the group are leader/rapper/singer/producer Wyclef Jean, rapper/singer Lauryn Hill, and rapper Pras Michel. Jean and Michel are of Haitian heritage, while Hill is from South Orange, New Jersey. Deriving their name from the term "refugee", the group is noted for the integration of soul and reggae into their work, and recorded two albums — one of which, The Score, was a multi-platinum and Grammy-winning success — before going their separate ways after 1997. Hill and Jean each went on to successful solo recording careers, while Michel focused mainly on soundtrack recordings and acting. In 2005 The Fugees returned back with maxi-single "Take It Easy", and since 2007 in torrents circulates an album called "Besides" with Bootleg versions of the group.
