It's not music anymore just beats

Scratch: What’s going on with the Fugees reunion, or lack there of?
WYCLEF: I’m officially Paul McCartney from the Beatles now. If the Fugees wanna come back, and Lauryn wanna come back…you can’t break the format. Don’t come back and be like, “I wanna produce a beat.” That’s like me saying I wanna sing an R&B vocal. When we was working on the album, I was like, [to Lauryn], “You need to do this like this.” [And] she says, “How do you know what’s relevant? I haven’t heard anything from you in the past like three, four years?” The minute she said that I was like, I gotta go back to working.

So what’s ultimately holding you guys back?
Lauryn is straight up the problem, bro. She wants to be a producer. Don’t come telling us how to chop up beats so you can get credit for it.

What makes you think she would take the credit?
We did a remix [with] Lauryn for John Legend, for the record “How High.” John Legend was saying our names. You know what she had [him] do? She was like, “Take off Wyclef and Jerry’s names.” Because she wanted people to think that she was the one doing the beat…I’m a producer and I’m a beatmaker with my cousin Jerry Wonder, and I’m a writer. She’s a writer, a vocalist, [and] a great [vocal] composer. And she’s great at picking out samples—she got 20 billion samples but can’t chop ’em up to save her life.

So she hasn’t made any of the beats she got credit for?
It’s real simple—if you did the beats, where are the beats? Show us one beat that you did. If you bring ’Clef to the studio, put an MP, put an SP, put a bunch of stuff, bring a bunch of cameras [and] say, “Clef, do a beat in two minutes.” The beat’s done! Bring Lauryn Hill in the studio with the same camera, say we give you three hours. Matter fact, fuck it, we’ll give you a month—do a beat. She can’t put it together!

My question is who programmed (Mary J Blige's) "All That I Can Say" because obviously that was a Lauryn Hill song.

Alright now. You're "sampling" my quotes and turning them into something different like people sample records. lol

TRANSLATION: THE only way Wyclef would ever be stupid enough to let Lauryn have credit as the sole producer for any Fugee track (which is suppose to be a team, not just Lauryn), she need to f*** him for tracks! disbelief lol

ANSWER: Lauryn's former studio-bound musicians that try to sue her years ago for uncredited production work on her own album, The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill. BTW, all matters were settle out of court.

The tempo for all the tracks were slow, no doubt. But it was still banging back in the 90's.

And I bet you hated them for sampling Teena's Ooh La La (a slow jam) and make THAT even slower?!?

You didn't understand the answer the first time. Lauryn didn't "produce" that track for MJB. It was a team of those same studio-bound musicians that also help out Lauryn. rolleyes
