NEWARK, N.J. (AP) _ Singer Lauryn Hill got an education in sharing credit.
The hip-hop diva settled a lawsuit over production credit on her smash album ``The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill″ for an undisclosed amount, a spokesman for Sony Music Entertainment said.
Four musicians, Vada Nobles, Rasheem Pugh, Tejumold and Johari Newton, claimed Hill promised to credit them for their work, but reneged and listed herself as the sole producer.
Hill’s representatives portrayed the lawsuit as an attempt to cash in on her success.
