Fugees Release First LP: Blunted on Reality

Blunted on Reality is the debut album of Fugees. Although the album was finished by 1992, it got pushed back several times until it was finally released in early 1994.

The trio released their first LP, Blunted on Reality, in 1994 under the guidance of legendary Kool and the Gang's producer Ronald khalis Bell. The album spawned two underground hits, "Nappy Heads (Mona Lisa)" and "Vocab", but gained little mainstream attention, although it had an unmistakable artistic quality and a very innovative approach in the use of samples. The musical qualities of this first opus would be rediscovered, after the release of their second album The Score which appeared in early 1996.
