Taking inspiration from some of the game’s newest artists, Wyclef Jean has released his first mixtape in several years which takes on songs like A$AP Ferg’s “Plain Jane” and Kendrik Lamar’s “DNA” and reimagines them into his own versions.
“I just feel like with all the kids talking about Wyclef Jean and different things, I was like, ‘What would happen if I’m from 1997 and I took everything that inspired me from 2017 and wanted to flip?’ ‘Clef says about the tape to VIBE. “Now, I’m back on the courts, for real. So when I do ‘DNA,’ when Kendrick hears it, or A$AP Ferg hears me spitting or when Kodak hears it, it’s like, “Really Clef?” I didn’t only take my time to bar-up, I also did a lot of re-production with guitars and playing on the track.” – Wyclef Jean
