Wyclef Jean has done a whole lot since he has walked up on the music scene. He first appeared with the Fugees and sold over 2 million on their first album Blunted on reality and sold over 18 million with their second album "The Score" which went multi-platinum. Shortly after he went into a solo career and featured with some of the greatest artist in the world such as Shakira, Lil Wayne, k'nnan, and MORE.
Globalgrind.com reported that Wycleaf will be running for president of Hati in this article just recently published."The former head of Haiti's Chamber of Deputies says singer Wyclef Jean is about to announce his candidacy for president of a nation struggling to recover from the Jan. 12 earthquake.
Former Deputy Pierre Eric Jean-Jacques tells The Associated Press that the hip hop artist will run as part of his coalition in the November election.Jean spokeswoman Cindy Tanenbaum declined to confirm the report. She said the singer would make an announcement Thursday night but declined to say what it would be.
Rumors have swirled for months that Jean would run. The singer has always been careful not to rule out a run for the president and recorded a song "If I was President." The 37-year-old was born outside Port-au-Prince but grew up in Brooklyn."
