Wyclef Jean’s extraordinary musical talent has brought him wealth and fame and taken him all over the world. He’s been a member of the biggest-selling rap group in history, he’s a multi-platinum hit-making solo artist; and he’s produced for, and collaborated with, an incredibly diverse array of musical superstars. On Masquerade, his third solo album, Wyclef focuses his considerable lyrical and musical skills on life in the hood: past, present, and future. There are vivid tales of his childhood and his struggles as a young immigrant on the mean streets of New York, serious messages to the youth wrongly enamored of thug culture, and pleas for peace and love in the future–all backed by the eclectic and unpredictable sounds we’ve come to expect from a Wyclef Jean CD. Hardcore hip-hop beats, R&B funk, slow jams, and uptempo reggae–they’re all here, sometimes all in the same track. Masquerade represents the next step in the musical development of an artist who’s known unalloyed success since first stepping onto the scene nearly ten years ago, and who shows no signs of slowing down.
