Wyclef Jean and MC Jin Trade Freestyle Raps and Beat-box at SXSW
After Wyclef Jean and Nick Huff Barili’s conversation at SXSW came to a conclusion and Q&A with audience started, rapper Jin stepped to the mic to thank Clef for producing and working on Jin’s first and only single more than 10 years ago called “Learn Chinese”. On the spot, with some encouragement from Nick and the crowd, both Wyclef and Jin decided to go back and forth free-styling off the dome and beat-boxing for the audience in attendance. The Hard Knock TV cameras caught all the action. Tune in next week for video of
Wyclef Jean being interviewed about his life and career by Nick Huff-Barili of Hard Knock TV.
Wyclef got his start as a crucial member of hip-hop trio the Fugees in the mid-1990s. Since winning multiple Grammys with the group, including two for the classic album The Score, the musician has gone on to have a very successful solo career blending several genres – from reggae to hip-hop and more – while working some of the best artists in the business.
