It’s definitely been worth the wait. Wyclef manages to blend them and the others without it sounding like he’s shoehorning in as many genres as possible in presenting his view of immigration and life in America. […]

The multi-lingual and internationally known producer/singer/rapper has always made it his musical mission to bring different worlds together, but on Memoirs of an Immigrant he’s taken his audio voyages to another level.
