Buying a ticket to a Lauryn Hill show, like tonight's at House of Blues, might mean you need to have backup evening plans ready. Or you might need to tell the babysitter you'll be home later than expected because Hill might not get there on time.

On paper, if Grammy Awards, record sales, and cultural impact are the criteria for G.O.A.T status, then Lauryn Hill is among a rarified crowd. Say her name to a casual music fan and you'll probably hear a negative response about jail, unpaid taxes, lawsuits over music credits and ex-Fugees bandmate Pras Michel.
