Wyclef Jean Net Worth: Wyclef Jean is a Haitian-American rapper, singer-songwriter, musician, record producer and politician who has a net worth of $50 million dollars. Wyclef Jean is most widely known as a former member of The Fugees (The Refugee Camp), but he has also had a very successful solo career. Born Wyclef Jeanelle Jean on October 17, 1969, in Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti, he rose to stardom as a band member of the Fugees. When he was a nine-year-old kid, Jean moved to the US with his family and has spent much of his life in the States. He first entered the limelight in 1993 with the release of the Fugees debut album, Blunted On Reality. The group, whose name was inspired by the plight of refugees from Haiti, was widely popular. Their greatest success was the 1996 album, The Score, that sold over 6 million copies and earned 2 Grammy Awards for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal and Best Rap Album. However, he split with his Fugees' bandmates Lauryn Hill and Prakazrel Pras Michel, to perform solo. In 1997, Wyclef released his first solo album, The Carnival, which eventually went platinum. His second album, The Ecleftic: 2 Sides II a Book, came to light three years later and included guests like Youssou N'Dour; Earth, Wind & Fire, Kenny Rogers, The Rock and Mary J. Blige. Later on, Wyclef released several other albums including Masquerade, The Preacher's Son and From the Hut, to the Projects, to the Mansion. In addition to his successful music career, Jean filed for candidacy in the 2010 Haitian presidential election on August 5, 2010. Unfortunately, the Electoral Commission subsequently ruled him ineligible to stand as he had not met the requirement to have been resident in Haiti for five years. Through his charitable organization called Yéle Haiti he got involved a variety of charitable works in Haiti between 2005 and 2010, including his efforts at earthquake relief. Bit in 2012, Yéle Haiti was effectively closed after much controversy.
