Wyclef Jean says the ''door is always open'' to reuniting the Fugees and making a follow up to their huge 'The Score' album.
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.''
