 Lauryn Hill, who got out of prison on Friday for tax evasion, produced her latest single while behind bars, RumorFix is reporting.

The former Fugees singer was also very strategic in when she released the speed-rap song "Consumerism" -- she released it on the eve of her release because, "it is a product of the space she was in while she was going through some of the challenges she has been faced with recently," her Tumblr account says.

The 38-year-old explains it this way: "Consumerism is part of some material I was trying to finish before I had to come in. We did our best to eek out a mix via verbal and emailed direction, thanks to the crew of surrogate ears on the other side. Letters From Exile is material written from a certain space, in a certain place. I felt the need to discuss the underlying socio-political, cultural paradigm as I saw it. I haven’t been able to watch the news too much recently, so I'm not hip on everything going on."
