Wyclef Jean Talks About His Early Interest In Rap And His Hit Songs
Rapper and singer Wyclef Jean is interviewed about his autobiography 'Purpose: An Immigrant's Story' at a Books and Books signing at Miami Dade College. He talks about the effect that songs 'Killing Me Softly' and 'Ready Or Not' had on people when he recorded it with his former hip hop band the Fugees, how his father had felt about him turning to rap music and where the term 'Booger Basement' came from.
'The 'Booger Basement' was the basement of my Uncle's house', he said, talking about the place he used to produce his music. 'My dad kicked me out the church because he felt that I was a worshipper of Satan at the time because I was producing what was called to him Satan Music which was called to me rap music', he said.
