The member of The Fugees takes the issue of him being called will.i.am seriously, premiering a black and white music video that narrates the experience.
Wyclef Jean releases a music video for "Warrior's Anthem", a song which recalls his experience being mistaken as will.i.am. To match the theme of the song, the one third of The Fugees includes a footage of him hanging out with the Black Eyed Peas singer.
"Some funny stuff may happen to me," Wyclef sings in the beginning. "I signed autographed for kid Clef from the Fugee. He looked at me and said 'what the hell is a Fugee, aren't you will.i.am from the full Peas?' I'm a fan but ain't no will.i.am. Let me introduce myself to the new generation: I'm Wyclef just a singer, songwriter composer and half school I used to be a better rapper then I got with The Fugees. "
"Warrior's Anthem" is one of the tracks in Wyclef Jean's EP "From the Hut, To the Projects to the Mansion" which was released in U.S. on November 10. It employs the concept of him using the alias Toussaint St Jean, struggling his way from the hut, to the career making and to the luxury he got from being a musician.
