Wyclef Jean has now joined the long list of artists who’ve called DJ Drama for a quick mixtape fix.

Jean is planning to release his newest effort, DJ Drama Presents Wyclef Jean AKA Toussaint St Jean From The Hut To The Projects To The Mansion. The DJ Drama mixtape will feature Eve, Lil Kim, Timbaland, Maino, and Cyndi Lauper.

‘Clef’s alias in the album title is a homage to Haitian revolutionary Toussaint L’Ouverture.

“I asked myself, who’s the toughest guy out there? Then I said, Well, DJ Drama is pretty badass. So I called him and asked if he’d be interested in doing a mixtape. He heard what I was up to and he said, ‘We gotta do a book – this is a novel!'” says Jean.

Wyclef is prepping a self-titled LP March 2010. –Linda Hobbs
