Raro Lae caught up with legendary artist, and former presidential candidate Wyclef Jean. After a SEVEN year musical hiatus, Raro Lae covered his FIRST tour stop at The Fillmore, in Silver Spring, MD. The show was completely sold out, without an empty spot to spare.

Wyclef spoke about his current EP #J’Ourvet which featured Young Thug, and many more, as well as his upcoming album, Carnival: III which he is currently working and on and set to release this year, which will be accompanied by a film. Carnival: III incorporated multiple schemes to in encompass all types of musical genres, and went on to disclose that he is working with one of our favorite Afrobeat artist! One can only wonder if it will be D’Banj or 2Face who he mentioned having brotherly relationships with.

“This is your moment, this is your season… Every season has a weather, right now is the Afrobeat season, Reggae season, Caribbean season.” – Wyclef Jean

Wyclef went on to give advice to the new wave of Reggae & Afrobeat artist, reminisced on running for President, steps he’s taking to become a billionaire before he retires, breaking his musical break, partnering with Shazam, as well moving into the software space and creating tech solutions and so much more!
