Funkmaster Flex has been integral part of the most recent Dipset reunion, but now he has his hopes set on reuniting another rap group. This one might surprise some fans.

The Fugees is another group that I’ve been working on,” Flex told HipHopWired.

Now while that seems like it isn’t too much to hang our hopes up, this wouldn’t be the first time we thought about the magic of a Fugees reunion. Here’s a timeline of other Fugees rumors that had us excited or sad throughout the years.

2004: The Fugees actually reunited. Wyclef Jean, Pras and Lauryn Hill put their differences aside and rocked a Block Party crowd in New York thanks to the great Dave Chappelle.

2005: The Fugees reunited again! This time, the trio took over the BET Awards.

2006: Wyclef told AOL that the Fugees were working on making this reunion an album. “It’s moving like a turtle, but it’s definitely moving,”

They gotta be willing to put their career in my hands and I’ve got them. Which means like if I’m like do this in the studio you used to do it before, so why you don’t wanna do it now?”

When The Wall Street Journal asked him about the reunion, he said, “Not for five years.” Wait, that’s this year, now. Could Flex be onto something?

Still, two-thirds of the Fugees is something, right? Not to Clef. “It wasn’t really a reunion,” he told Us. “I had a concert, but I got the offer to come. Pras was at the crib, so I said, ‘Pras, Lauryn wants me at Rock The Bells and I can’t make it. So don’t you think you should just surprise her and pop up instead?’ So Pras shows up. And there’s two Fugees. Then they’re like, where’s the third? But that’s what happened.”

I’m all for that, 100 percent. I’m the No. 1 Fugees fan.”
