Jazz pianist Robert Glasper opened up about working with Lauryn Hill during an interview on “The Madd Hatta Morning Show” on Houston’s KBXX. Robert Glasper called out Lauryn Hill for “stealing music,” and allegedly firing musicians shortly before shows. "We rehearse a whole week, maybe 10 hours a day,” he said, describing working with Hill on a show she was paid half-a-million dollars for. “Every day she comes in and changes the show, changes what she wants to do. Completely. The last rehearsal, she doesn’t show up. Her manager shows up and says, ‘Lauryn’s not really feeling the way you guys have been learning the music, so we’re gonna cut your pay in half.’ The last rehearsal. The day before the show. ‘We’re gonna cut your pay in half.’”"You've already stolen all of my friends' music. Miseducation was made by great musicians and producers that I know personally. You got a big hand off of music you didn't even write," the multi-Grammy Award winner says. "Those songs were written by other people and they did not get their credit." "She likes to take credit so she can become this super person. If you're a super person, and you're that talented, do it. You feel me? She couldn't tune her guitar in rehearsal," he adds of the 2008 gig. "You haven't done enough to be the way you are. You just have not. The one thing you did that was great, you didn't do."
