We first brought you the single "Warriors Anthem" by Wyclef which was an re-introduction of the man that brought us hit after hit. Next we posted the mixtape "Patwa Swagga" where Wyclef paid homage to his favorite 90s dancehall songs only in a way Wyclef could do it.
Shortly thereafter, Wyclef and his team provided OURBLOC.com with three exclusive leaks from a musical montage, skillfully produced by Mr. Thanksgiving himself, DJ Drama. The EP anticipation reached a climatic peak after Wyclef blew through the 1,000,000 followers threshold on Twitter.
Now the wait is finally over!
DJ Drama Presents Wycelf Jean: Toussaint St. Jean - From The Hut, To The Projects To The Mansion.
Wyclef takes us on a lyrical journey of how he evolved as a man, an artist, and humanitarian. Along this journey, Wyclef and DJ Drama invited a few friends such as Eve, Lil' Kim, Timberland and the great Cyndi Lauper to help paint the full picture of his life's travels.
Right now my early favorite is "Slumdog Millionaire" which features Cyndi Lauper as the Luscious Loo Loo. The beat is hard, the lyrical delivery is sick. This song is definitely radio ready, however, I highly doubt that this track will make it there; which is truly unfortunate...but I digress
Another early favorite is the album's final track "The Shottas". It's an atypical roots track that we have all come to expect on every Wyclef album. "From the Hut, To the Projects, To the Mansion" is an excellent prelude to Wyclef's highly anticipated studio project scheduled for a March 2010 release. I can not wait to finish listening to the full project in its entirety, but so far, its great addition to his musical library.
