Wyclef Jean stopped by to promote his new record, "The Carnival II: Memoirs of an Immigrant." Howard immediately started in; "What happened to Lauryn Hill?" Wyclef said Lauryn was bi-polar: She demanded to be called "Miss Hill" during the reunited Fugees' recording sessions - even by those who've known her forever. Wyclef told the crew about his rough childhood in the slums of Haiti and ghettos of Brooklyn, but the 'hoods weren't the hard part – it was his father's "tough love." Wyclef said his father once beat him so hard, he needed 32 stitches, and only now has he come to understand the motivation behind the beatings – he wanted his son to be good. Howard wondered why Wyclef's dad had such a problem with his son's music, but Wyclef wasn't sure, adding that his father eventually came around and attended one of Wyclef's performances.
Wyclef played a live acoustic cover of Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Fortunate Son." Afterward, Howard asked about Wyclef's sexual history. Wyclef said he lost his virginity at 12 to a 16-year-old girl, was a strip-club regular at 15, got married at 18, and had an affair with Lauryn Hill during the recording of the first Fugees record. Wyclef then claimed the craziness was behind him, as he's rededicated himself to his Haitian wife.
