The former Fugees member has delivered another notable tape following his September release of Carnival III.

Right off the top, we hear DJ Khaled on the project assisting Wyclef for another mix on Santana's "Maria Maria." The second beat, "Inspired By Kendrick Lamar" is exactly as it's titled, a spin-off Kenny's track "DNA" with some intense guitar strings. Drake's dance-hall inspired beat "Controlla" even gets turned into a rock ballad.

Wyclef recently told Billboard that his new tape shows off his musicality over today's trap music-type production. 

"So for me, it's a beautiful era because you get to put albums out and at the same time, when you want to talk to the culture, you put the mixtape out," he said. "You know, I just feel like with all the kids talking about Wyclef Jean and different things, I was like, 'What would happen if I'm from 1997 and I took everything that inspired me from 2017 and wanted to flip?'"
