February 13 marks the 25th anniversary of the Fugees’ seminal album, The Score. Fugees, short for refugees, was formed in New Jersey in the 90s and included Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean, and Pras Michel. They were known for original hits like “Ready or Not" and covers such as “Killing Me Softly With His Song.” KEXP will be celebrating the album's anniversary all day on Friday, February 12 by playing album cuts, remixes, inspirations, and more.

KEXP’s Larry Mizell, Jr. and Gabriel Teodros catch up to talk about the legacy of the Fugees and The Score and why it matters. "To see this group who's Black who also has an immigrant experience embracing it and standing strong in it, I know it changed my life. I can only imagine what it did for countless artists," Teodros said.
