Wyclef Jean puts his two cents in on the reunion-gone-wrong of The Fugees...telling Scratch Magazine
that Lauryn Hill has been the major roadblock and mainly because she won't stay in her lane!
What’s going on with the Fugees reunion, or lack there of?
WYCLEF: I’m officially Paul McCartney from the Beatles now. If the Fugees wanna come back, and Lauryn wanna come back…you can’t break the format. Don’t come back and be like, “I wanna produce a beat.” That’s like me saying I wanna sing an R&B vocal. When we was working on the album, I was like, [to Lauryn], “You need to do this like this.” [And] she says, “How do you know what’s relevant? I haven’t heard anything from you in the past like three, four years?” The minute she said that I was like, I gotta go back to working.
So what’s ultimately holding you guys back?
Lauryn is straight up the problem, bro. She wants to be a producer. Don’t come telling us how to chop up beats so you can get credit for it.
Wyclef goes on to breakdown what tensions has plagued the reunion and his new album, Carnival II: Memoirs of an Immigrant
, which features appearances from Lil Wayne, Akon, Sizzla, Paul Simon, Mary J. Blige, Chamillionaire, Minister Louis Farrakhan and more.
