Wyclef Jean is working on a memoir.
The solo star and former frontman for The Fugees is collaborating with Rolling Stone writer Anthony Bozza on a book – currently untitled – to be published by It Books, an imprint of HarperCollins. Financial terms weren’t disclosed and a release date hasn’t been set.
The publisher announced in a statement Monday that the book will cover Jean’s life, from his childhood in rural Haiti to his musical career and philanthropic work.
Jean, who just turned 37, is known for such hit singles as “We Trying to Stay Alive” and “Gone Till November.” With the Fugees, he recorded the Grammy-winning, multiplatinum-selling album “The Score.”
As previously reported, Wyclef is retruning to hip hop next month with “From The Hut To The Projects To The Mansion,” a mixtape collaboration with DJ Drama.
