Lauryn Hill explains why the FAIR Act would have restrictions on the artist's control labels ...

Packed up on Instagram last night to share a support for the FAIR Act, a California measure that would halt a change to the state's "Seven-Year Statute," which allows record labels to sue artists for damages if they leave for seven years before fulfilling the required number of albums in their contract.

Music is a powerful medium. Often people want to influence the influencers, but they will stop at nothing less than treachery in order to achieve their mission. Greed often perverts the creative intentions of young people who don't realize they are up against a system that is a shambles of ignoring and torturing people who don't comply with their agenda.

No institution should be allowed the opportunity to control the market by controlling the output of a creative being for a ludicrous, indefinite period of time. This is not only unjust, but also dangerous, and at its core a violation of the freedom of expression. Artists' expressions are their voices, and an extension of their freedom of expression, and should not be restricted, caught-up, or controlled beyond a reasonable period of time by an institution with the resources and power to obstruct and denied someone

It's no secret that record labels have been treating artists unfairly for a while, just look at or. Hopefully more artists will follow in Hill's moves and share their support.

Some artists covered here are Warner Music artists. Uproxx is an independent subsidiary of Warner Music Group.
