September is a tough month for Wyclef Jean. On the Sept. 11, 2001, he could see, from where he was in Jersey, the smoke billowing from what remained of the World Trade Center twin towers. Just four days before, his father, a reverend, died in a car accident. ”It was the most painful era for me,” he says. While the 34-year-old has persevered, others from his past have not, namely a certain former Fugee collaborator. Clef, as he sometimes refers to himself, lives in between Miami and Haiti, but was in New York on Sept. 12, following a rainy and somber 9/11 anniversary. He met with EW to discuss his new album, titled The Carnival II: Memoirs from an Immigrant, his humanitarian efforts as an ambassador of Haiti, and explains why Lauryn Hill ”needs to see a psychiatrist.” Entertainment Weekly
