Talib Kweli has written an article on Medium in defense of Lauryn Hill.
The artist is a human being, not a product. Sure, the artist makes products that are for sale, but the artist is not forever in your debt because you may have purchased a product from them at some point. When you buy an album from me, I receive money and you get music. Itís a fair and even exchange that begins and ends once I receive my money and you receive your product. If I donít value myself as an artist ó especially working in a market that has decided that recorded music is not worth spending money on ó then who will?
