Fugees star Lauryn Hill is being sued by four musicians who say they deserve millions of dollars in royalties from her hit solo album from this year, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, according to the Associated Press. In the suit, filed Nov. 19 in federal court in New Jersey, drum programmer Vada Nobles, guitarist Johari Newton, pianist Tejumold Newton and singer Rasheem Pugh are seeking co-production and co-writing credits, along with one-third of the album's earnings, which they claim are at least $6 million. The AP quotes Hill spokesman Dan Klores as saying the musicians were "appropriately credited" on the album. During its first week of sales in September, Miseducation sold 420,000 copies, setting a record for the most units sold in a single week by a female solo artist; that record was broken in November by Alanis Morissette, who moved 469,000 copies of Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie.
