In the pop 'n' fresh world of music, it's not that difficult to make a
splash and become a phenomenon. What's really hard is becoming an
artist and sustaining and developing a legitimate and substantial career.
Those wanting an answer to that question might look to Wyclef Jean, because in this superstar you have the
blueprint for both commercial success and creative potency. From his
groundbreaking work with The Fugees to his genre-defying solo debut
"The Carnival - featuring Fugees Allstars" to his acclaimed and
Grammy-winning production and songwriting credits for, among others,
Destiny's Child, Whitney Houston (the top ten smash "My Love Is
Your Love") and Carlos Santana (the number one hit "Maria,
Maria"), Wyclef Jean broadened and expanded the reach of
Wyclef has been putting his own spin on things since he first began making
music. The son of a preacher, Wyclef was born in Haiti and, over the
years, has emerged as a leading champion of that country, serving as a
spokesman for many issues and heading up the Wyclef Jean Foundation
to help children both in Haiti and the United States. Wyclef moved to
Brooklyn's Marlborough Houses when he was nine years old. "I'm all
about the projects. I was raised with this training from the church and
the streets and the parks and it's what developed me as a person and as
Wyclef received his first guitar from his mother. By high school, he had moved to New Jersey and where he
majored in jazz. By the early 1990's he had formed a hip-hop group,
The Fugees, with
Lauryn Hill and Prakazrel "Pras" Michel. The trio toured non-stop and their 1994 debut, "Blunted On Reality,"
earned them good press but not much commercial attention. Undeterred,
Wyclef and his cousin and musical partner Jerry "Wonder"
Duplesis seized production control of
The Fugees next effort, which, in
1996, would emerge as "The Score," one of the largest-selling
and most influential hip-hop records in chart history.
"The Score"'s staggering sales (more than 11 million units
worldwide) and critical acclaim helped secure Wyclef's status as one of
hip-hop and R&B's hottest producers. He went on to produce a diverse
roster of acts including Cypress Hill,
Bounty Killer and
In 1997 Clef released his solo CD "The Carnival - featuring Fugees Allstars," which spawned the hits "Staying Alive" and the moving "Gone Till November," which earned Clef a Grammy
nomination for Best R&B Vocal Performance, Male. Praised for its
freewheeling, multi-cultural sound, "The Carnival" has been
certified double platinum by the RIAA. Following the album's release,
Wyclef toured, produced a slew of hip-hop and R&B recordings
(including fellow Fugee Pras's hit "Ghetto Superstar"),
participated in a televised tribute to Johnny Cash, and hosted two
all-day fundraisers benefiting the Wyclef Jean Foundation.
A musician with an activist's heart, a guitar-slinging microphone
bandit, a seasoned veteran with an ear to the streets, Wyclef Jean
has come along way and brought hip-hop along on his journey.
Hit songs include --
- Gone Till November
- We Trying To Stay Alive
- Cheated (To All The Girls)
- It Doesn't Matter
- Sweetest Girl (Dollar Bill)
- New Day
- Two Wrongs
- Party To Damascus
