review 1: This album is a 3 but I think just barely. There are some good things in this book like Wyclef describing his childhood and influences. But the chapter where he starts about the Score drags as he can't seem to really articulate about his relationship with Lauryn Hill. In one sense it does illuminate the difficulty and confusion they shared but it doesn't help with the process of understanding a lot of what went on. He also neglects to give us many stories about working with people outside of The Fugees. I do like how he talks about Haiti and his decisions regarding his home country as well. In all of that it still feels like something is lacking in this book at some point.
review 2: Great story of Wyclef's life from Haiti, to stardom and back. Overall an enjoy
... moreable read, though I struggled at times with his ego in the book and affairs (not a good example to set for young women that it's ok for men to cheat but he admits to his wrongs in the end). I would have enjoyed hearing more about his early life in Haiti. The writing is light and easy to read and at time comical. Enjoyed! less

Eh. I like Wyclef but I felt like his explanation of his time in the Fugees was kinda crap.
DNF at 55%. Read entire back half of the book, first 15 pages, then splitsville.
A must read for any Fugees or Wyclef fan!
Interesting but completely unapologetic
