Wyclef Jean presents a project in which each song draws on inspiration from the new school.
Wyclef Jean is a legend who needs little introduction. Beginning and cementing his legacy as one-third of the Fugees, Jean has gone on to have one of the most illustrious and influential careers in hip-hop. His contributions have shaped countless young acts, included hip-hop’s most eclectic rising star, Young Thug. Now, the roles have reversed. Wyclef Jean presents a project in which each song draws on inspiration from the new school.
Inspired By contains nods to Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Ferg, 2 Chainz, and more. The Kendrick inspired track is a fiery remix of “DNA,” while the song inspired by Drake’s “Controlla” sounds more like a return to form. As fun as it is to see an OG play with the new sounds in hip-hop, it’s even better to see Wyclef Jean sending a message that we don’t have to pit the old against the new. Recently recording at Audiomack Studios for DJBooth and Tidal, Wyclef Jean shows no signs of slowing down.
