Producer Says Fugees Will Reunite
Rumors of a possible Fugees reunion have been swirling around for years, and according to Grammy-winning producer Jerry “Wonda” Duplessis, they may be getting back together sometime soon.
Duplessis, who produced many of the tracks on their diamond-selling sophomore release ‘The Score,’ claims that a reconciliation is imminent.
“I believe there will be a day when the Fugees get together, but everyone in the group’s gotta’ be ready,” Duplessis told Rap-Up.com. “The Fugees are definitely going to get back together. The time will come. You’ve gotta wait, man.”
The Haitian born self-taught musician had a little fun with the notion, tweeting that he was in the studio with members Pras, Wyclef Jean and Lauryn Hill, as an April Fool’s joke. News of the gag spread pretty quickly prompting several phone calls inquiring about a reunion.
“In my studio, I was getting crazy phone calls and mad emails. My Twitter was going heavy. People all over the globe were saying, ‘Is it true? We really want the Fugees!’” he said. “Lauryn was getting phone calls. Wyclef was getting phone calls. Pras was getting phone calls. I felt that if tickets had gone on sale, it would have been sold out in two hours–globally.”
Although the trio attempted to get back together years ago, Jean has since thrown his hands up at the idea, publicly criticizing Hill for holding up the process and calling her “mentally ill.” After a slew of erratic public appearances, which include showing up hours late for performances, Hill appears to be getting back on track, even writing a letter to fans apologizing for her tardiness.
