Lauryn Hill IS NO LONGER A PRISONER ... the ex-Fugees singer has been released from federal prison after serving her 3-month sentence for tax evasion.

According to the Bureau of Prisons, Hill -- aka Inmate #64600-050 -- was released early Friday morning from the minimum security Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut.

Hill had been locked up since July 8 ... after failing to pay taxes on more than $1.8 million in income she earned between 2005 and 2007.

Fun Fact: The prison where Lauryn served time is same prison that "Orange Is the New Black" takes place in. LOOK OUT FOR CRAZY EYES!!!

When you think about the millions of tax dollars she donated to the Federal government, I would say Ms. Hill was screwed. She paid way more in taxes than most people and she gets thrown in the brig for failing to pay more ransom to a government that allows everyone else to get everything for free. Her tax money paid for the operating cost of the entire prison for years.

She got out earlier than Wesley Snipes did while Richard Hatch is STILL in prison. I guess playing the race card helped after all.

Blacks go to jail for not paying taxes, but whites, and half whites (zimm) go free for killing blacks. Yep, there'll always be equal "justice" in america. This country still owe us for the past 200+ lost years, but we are the ones still being punished for not paying? The R.I.P movement Coming Soon! to YouTube channel BEN TEN TEN.
