Wyclef Jean Draws Inspiration from New Generation Artists For New Mixtape, ‘Inspire’

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
