The youth of rapper Wyclef Jean will be filmed. Netflix makes an animated film of the Fugees rapper.

“I grew up in extreme poverty, but I had a rich empathy”, the musician says in a statement. “Now I see that fantasy becomes reality with Netflix, with my production partners I want to show children in slums around the world that they should never stop dreaming.”
