We caught up with renegade writer/producer Wyclef Jean to talk about his upcoming album'The Carnival II - Memoirs of an Immigrant'. Wyclef divulged info about recording with Paul Simon and the possibility of another Fugees album.

November the 5th sees the release of his brand new album 'The Carnival II - Memoirs of an Immigrant'. The album features contributions from the likes of Mary J Blige (a follow up to '911'), Norah Jones, Shakira and Paul Simon. The first single 'Sweetest Girl' features Akon and has a chorus that will be swirling round in your head for the rest of the year!

Wyclef draws on influences from the islands, the streets and from his upbringing - musical and otherwise - from Haiti to the Marlborough projects in Brooklyn to New Jersey. In fact, earlier this year, Wyclef was involved a documentary on his home town 'Haiti'. He tirelessly campaigns to create awareness of the unacceptable level of violence.

As a founder member of The Fugees, Wyclef Jean has achieved more than most hip-hop artists can dream of. The bands eclectic masterpiece "The Score" sold over 6 million copies worldwide and remains one of the biggest selling hip-hop albums of all time. Wyclef was the first Fugee to go solo and has since worked with and eclectic mix of artists from Mary J Blige ('911') to Whitney Houston ('My Love is Your Love') to Sinead O'Connor, Bob Dylan, Tom Jones, Mick Jagger, Michael Jackson, and last year with Shakira on the biggest number 1 hit of the year 'Hips Don't Lie'.
