By the time he released his debut album, The Carnival, in 1997, I was already a big fan of his intelligent lyricism, his sense of rhythm and his sense of humour.
His musical sound is definitely eclectic (or as he titled one of his albums, Ecleftic). Wyclef’s music, especially his first album, did not have the standard Hip Hop or RnB sound which I had grown accustomed to in the mid-late 1990s. He created his very own sound.
For me, Wyclef a.k.a The Preacher’s Son embodies creativity and the willingness to explore one’s talent, even if it doesn’t look like everyone else’s.
Here’s a list of my favourite Wyclef songs:
