    It has been 20 years since Wyclef Jean put out his first solo record, Wyclef Presents The Carnival. Since then he has continued to push out hits, but that has never stopped him from returning to his refugee roots. Now the Haitian musician is set to release the third and final piece of his Carnival trilogy, Carnival III: The Fall and Rise of a Refugee, and the sounds continue to delight.

    On this LP, he is here to say, "We are gonna fall at the end of the day, but it's what we do when we rise.” The album continues Wyclef's use of a variety of genres and a mix of the ups with the downs to tell one last immigrant story. And in today's tumultuous world, it's one narrative that needs to be heard.

    ARTISTdirect's Christopher Friedmann caught up with Wyclef to discuss his eclectic mix of sounds, his ability to find a balance within the good and bad, and the last chapter of the Carnival trilogy.
