Lauryn Hill

Ready or not ... Lauryn Hill has just reported to federal prison in Connecticut, where she will begin her 3 month sentence for tax evasion, TMZ has learned.

Officials tell TMZ ... the former Fugees singer was booked into the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury at 11:15 AM EST.

We're told the FCI is a "minimum security type facility" where inmates live in "barracks type" housing.

We're also told 38-year-old Hill will not be isolated in the facility -- and will be housed with the general population.

As we previously reported, Hill pled guilty last year to three counts of tax evasion for failing to file returns on $1.8 million she earned from 2005 to 2007.

I pity anyone who has to share a tight space with her. I hope her fellow inmates get time off.

Awww. Poor thing. I really doubt the daughter of former slaves will actually serve the full three months.

Poor Lauren! How can she just let herself go like that. She was such a great role-model in her prime, what a waste of talent.

Yup    

If anyone deserves a vicious prison beatdown, it's this "I made millions & enjoyed a lifestyle few will ever know, but my decision to not pay my taxes is because I'm a victim of historic racism" deadbeat bitch...

The thing I don't understand is she blames the gov't for inability to pay taxes.

Any bets on how long before she calls the prison a 'Slave Camp'? What an idiot. First she hadn't paid becuase 'she was afraid for her/her family's safety'. Later, it was becuase 'making her pay taxes is akin to slavery'. Shut up Lauren & be glad all you got was 3 months!
