Lauryn Hill
just bought herself a couple weeks of freedom.

The R&B legend was to be sentenced to prison today after pleading guilty to blowing off her 2005-2007 tax returns ... but the sentencing was moved to May 6 to give Lauryn a chance to repay a chunk of her $968,000 tax debt.

Hill's attorney said the singer recently signed a million-dollar recording deal with Sony ... she was also planning to take out a $650,000 loan to put toward the bill.

Hill faces several years in prison ... but her attorney is hoping for probation.

I was lucky enough to sleep with Lauryn a few times and she is a minx in the sack. Tight in all the right places, sweet to the tongue, soft to the touch and with enough energy and passion to light a small city.

This is not a good photo of her, she is a beautiful gal!
