Artist to team with Rolling Stone writer for book covering childhood in Haiti through musical career.

Wyclef

Wyclef

The former member of The Fugees is working on a memoir with Rolling Stone writer Anthony Bozza for publisher It Books, an imprint of HarperCollins.      

The memoir will chronicle Wyclef’s childhood in the tiny rural village of La Serre in Haiti and his subsequent immigration to Brooklyn, NY, where at the age of 9 he began his journey into pop culture.

He will recount his struggle between the double life he led as a preacher’s son playing music in church with becoming a young rapper trying to fit in with his peers.       

       The book will also document his success as founding member of The Fugees and then his solo career where he established himself as a sought-after musician, performer, songwriter and producer.       

       “I am so happy to share my journey which took me from the hut to the projects to the mansion,” said Wyclef. “I am just getting started and feel so excited about It Books publishing the early stories from my life.”      

       Financial terms weren’t disclosed, the book is currently untitled and a release date has yet to be set.
