An honest and funny insight into the extraordinary life of a unique musician. Reading about his relationship with his Father makes the song Daddy all the more meaningful on a fresh listen. Anyone with an interest in The Fugees, Wyclef or music should give this book a read. Brilliant!

How did a baby born in a Haitian slum grow up to be a hip-hop star in the U.S. before running for the Haitian presidency in the wake of the country's horrific 2010 earthquake? For Wyclef Jean, learning how to rap helped him with his English, while his expanding association with East Coast rappers put him in the right place at the right time when the group that eventually became the Fugees hit it big. Though he covers topics from the Fugees' success to his relationship with Lauryn Hill to his efforts to help the Haitian people, his focus is always on his goal to live life with purpose, and this energy is apparent throughout his memoir.
