Wyclef Jean engaged in some swift shuttle diplomacy on Monday night. The part-time solo artist and member of multi-platinum hip-hop trio the Fugees performed an hourlong set with his band, the Refugee Allstars, for a full house at the Palace--a show that was booked after his House of Blues concert the same night sold out. Then Jean and his crew decamped to the House of Blues to perform that late show.

"So, what do you want to know about the Fugees?" The question from Wyclef Jean is unexpected. You'd think that the last thing the hip-hop star would want to talk about as he sits in West Hollywood hotel room is his strained relationship with his old group--especially when he's in town to talk about his new solo album.

Wyclef Jean, the latest daring young man to join the circus, hails from the flying Fugees--not a trapeze act, but one of the most successful groups in hip-hop music. On Saturday at the Pond of Anaheim, Jean will turn the evening performance of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus into a double-header. First comes the three-ring circus at 7:30, then, at 10 p.m., Jean and his Refugee Allstars will give a hip-hop concert that's included with circus admission.

Given the difficulty such acclaimed and popular rap groups as Arrested Development and Digable Planets had in maintaining their initial success, you'd think the members of the Fugees would be devoting all their attention to making sure the trio's next record stayed on track. Instead, two of the members--Wyclef Jean and Lauryn Hill--are doing solo albums before recording the follow-up to the Fugees' 6 million-selling "The Score."

They are the ones who, either through their own work or their production of other artists, set the tone in the $1-billion-a-year rap world. Here's a critical guide to this Elite Eight.
