Wyclef Jean - Wyclef Jean open to new Fugees album

Picture:

Wyclef Jean says the ''door is always open'' to making a new Fugees record.

The singer and producer would like to reunite with former bandmates Lauryn Hill and Pras Michel to follow up their second album 'The Score', which sold over 10 million copies when released in 1996.

Speaking about a line in his new track, 'Hip Hop', where he says he misses currently inactive rap group Outkast, he told Rolling Stone magazine: ''What if Outkast did get back together? It's like how people always ask for a new Fugees album. I'm a fan, too. With me, the door is always open to do a Fugees record.''

While Wyclef is in the position to reunite the groundbreaking group Lauryn faces difficulties, as she is set to start a three month jail sentence for failing to pay nearly $1 million in taxes next month.

Despite her issues, Wyclef is confident they won't affect her, adding: ''When she gets out, she'll get her stuff straight and put that past her. Everybody has tax problems - it's how you get past it. Lauryn will come back stronger.''

Meanwhile, Pras has taken a step back from music since his second album 'Win Lose or Draw' in 2005, although he recently offered his support to Lauryn.

Wyclef released a free mixtape, 'April Showers', featuring new songs, at the end of last month, but also said he has plenty more ideas, adding: ''I've got 25 original new songs. It's like a 'Batman' movie - back to the hunger. That's my mindset.''
