I love it!
Music is one of the best parts of my life, so to be able to interview some of the greatest musicians of our time on the show is an honor for me.
But all of this went to a new level a few weeks ago when the legendary artist, producer, lyricist, and rapper Wyclef Jean came to the studio.
Not only did he waste no time in doing a kettle bell competition with me, he also picked up my guitar and started free-styling a song about the show and Instagram live (I hope you caught that as I posted it live).
Then we sat down and he started telling me story after story of a life’s worth of lessons.
He told me about growing up dirt poor in Haiti, about the violence he experienced as a young man in New York City, about the genius of his mind in creating a recording studio in his uncle’s basement, about helping Beyonce write her first big song before she was Beyonce, and so much more.
And then we talked about how inspiring his 11 year old daughter is to him, why he ran for president of Haiti, and what it took for him to write his newest EP after taking a years-long break from music.
Wyclef is a true master of his craft, but he’s also a deeply caring and wise human being.
I feel like we barely scratched the surface of the wisdom he has to share and I can’t wait to have him back on – but for now, enjoy the genius of the incredible Wyclef in Episode 457.
