While Lauryn Hill has inked a new deal with Sony, her Fugees bandmate Wyclef Jean is touting his first mixtape April Showers.
The Haitian rapper crafts 33 tracks including the previously released “Hip Hop” and “Mid Life Crisis.” Clef calls on some familiar names including T.I., Waka Flocka Flame, Mobb Deep, and the late Whitney Houston (whose dubplates he releases), while introducing new talent signed to his Refugee La Republique Records.
“With April Showers, I am going to show you where I feel the evolution and future of music is going. From this body of work you can expect a futuristic sonic eclectic sound,” says Wyclef. “April Showers promises a forecast that will help bring brighter days to hip-hop fans across the globe.”
