If You Love Hip-Hop, You Will Not Want to Miss This Live Musical Performance
Wyclef Jean is one of the leading artists in hip-hop and has been particularly successful in melding rhythm and blues, reggae, and rap into a cohesive form. Watch him live when he brings his unique sound to Kansas City on August 24th!
Jean is known equally for his songwriting capabilities for other artists as he is for his own career. One of Jean’s first professional musical endeavors and undeniably one of his most successful was the formation of the Fugees. The group’s second album, The Score, topped the U.S. Billboard 200 and has since obtained Platinum status six times over. The Fugees disbanded in 1997 with only two albums under their belt, leaving an indelible impression on both hip-hop and pop culture.
Jean released his debut studio album The Carnival shortly after the Fugees split. The album contained over 73 minutes of material and featured guest spots from Lauryn Hill, Celia Cruz, John Forte, and even the Haitian politician and former musician Michael Joseph Martelly. The album garnered praise from underground critics and excelled commercially, placing at number 16 on the U.S. Billboard 200 and selling over 5 million copies since its release.
Joining Wyclef Jean is Blackalicious, a hip-hop duo from California noted for their often tongue-twisting rhymes, classic beats, and spiritual, uplifting lyrics. They have released four studio albums.
