Wyclef To Score Eddie Murphy/Martin Lawrence Film

Wyclef Jean is a very busy man these days. In addition to his performances on the Smokin' Grooves tour with such acts as Busta Rhymes, Public Enemy, and Cypress Hill, Wyclef is also slated to do the score for the upcoming Eddie Murphy/Martin Lawrence movie "Life," which is due out in early 1999 via Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment.

The plot line for the drama/comedy centers on two criminals who discover the value of life after being wrongfully sentenced to life imprisonment. Ted Demme is directing the picture. (Demme was the original producer of MTV's Yo MTV Raps).

On a more musical note, the rapper is also set to co-produce the upcoming Earth, Wind & Fire album with band founder Maurice White. As previously reported by MTV News, Wyclef and the seminal act are going to step into the studio in October. Though no release date has been scheduled, the album will be released on the Fugees' label, Refugee Camp Entertainment.
