Wyclef Jean Penning Memoir

Haiti stand up! Wyclef Jean is currently working on a memoir.

The Associated Press reports that the book will touch on Clef’s early life in Haiti, his rise onto the rap scene with Lauryn Hill and Pras, his successful solo career as a performer, producer and collaborator and his philanthropic contributions later on in life.

The former Fugees frontman has scored a publishing deal with It Books, an imprint of HarperCollins, for the book and he tapped Anthony Bozzo, a music journalist who has works for Rolling Stone magazine, to help him with the writing.

As of press time there is no release date or title for the memoir.

Jean isn’t the only rap artist who recently revealed plans for an autobiography. Fellow ’90s rapper Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest is working on Industry Rules, to drop on Ballantine Books in late 2010. –Elan Mancini

I looked and said,”Crippin gone pay 2nite!” he said “OMG!! I’m so fuccin sorry I know I’m a Zoe Pound but I know when I’m fucced up and I’m begging you not to show me why they call u Lunch Pail” I looked back @ Brett Farve (Had his purple Vikings Uni on, thought he was a Grape St Crip)he said “Retire His ass!” I immediately dropped my plate of Lasongia and smacced the holy shit outta this bald fucchead! I remember that Lauren Hill was cryin not to fucc him up anyfurther! I then took his hand and beat the shit outta of Pras w/Wyclef’s fist! True Story! I’m in negotiations to join the Paybacc Crips!
