Overview

2003 had so far been a great year for Wyclef. A new label deal with J Records, a greatest-hits compilation, and guest production work for artists kept him at the top of the hip-hop game without actually having to release a solo album. However, Clef decided that these things were simply not enough and had to come out with The Preacher's Son. Easily a redemption for the 2002's marginal Masquerade, Preacher's Son finds Wyclef re-energized right from the opening moments (aside from the extremely out of place introduction by comedian/pitch guy Steve Harvey). Preacher's Son starts off with a one-two punch: the left hook of "Industry" finds Wyclef making a wish list to reverse several of the tragedies and battles hip-hop had endured over the past decade ("Imagine if Biggie and Pac never got shot/Nas and Jay-Z they were still homies/Squash the beef with Ja Rule and 50/Benzino shook hands with Eminem/And on the same record I heard Eve, Foxy and Kim") and the right hook of "Party to Damascus," a bumped-up track featuring Missy Elliott delivering one of her signature raunchy freestyles. Preacher's Son doesn't let up there either thanks to an armada of guest cameos from Patti LaBelle, Redman, Carlos Santana, Scarface, and Monica, just to name a few. And unlike most rap albums, which rely on these guest appearances to carry the weight of the record's impact, these contributions only complement the stellar songwriting, arrangements, and production style that has made Wyclef one of the most in-demand producers of the 2000s and '90s. As with most records, there's a bit of filler that could be trimmed to make a great record into a phenomenal one, but it's easy to forgive when the quality is so high. The Preacher's Son is a welcome return to form and easily one of the biggest highlights of Wyclef's career. [The bonus DVD version contains a single disc dedicated to a live session of several of these tracks, as well as bonus footage of Wyclef in the studio]

Wyclef Jean is a talented artist that has kept the Beat in versitile rap. His album "Ecleftic" really showed us his talents. If you're into rock? rap and soul then buy "The preachers son".

This CD is very good. I bought it last week and can't stop listening to it! It is almost as Clef's other CD Masquerade.

I love this album. Wyclef is such a gifted artist. You go through so many different genres. From Hip-Hop to oldies R&B to modern R&B to reggae and Latin flavas. He is so creative, and his creativity reflects on this album. Enjoy!

Wyclef has been one of the best artist in the world. his music is totally different from any other artists. he preaches peace and love in this album.his love for hip hop will take hip hop to another level, he will change the way people see hip hop, and hopefully will stop the "beef" between all the other artists, because we can not afford to loose artists like we lost BIG and PAC. keep up the good job wyclef and may God bless you...
