(AllHipHop News) Hip-Hop star Wyclef Jean will announce his bid for the President of Haiti, a source has confirmed with AllHipHop.com exclusively.
Sources close to Wyclef confirmed with AllHipHop.com that the rapper will announce his bid for the country’s highest office next Thursday, on August 5th.
The 37-year-old was born in Haiti, but immigrated to the United States at the age of 9-years-old, when he landed in Brooklyn, before settling in South Orange, New Jersey.
As a member of The Fugees and as a solo artist, Wyclef has sold millions of records, in addition to collaborating with artists like Paul Simon, Gloria Estefen, Destiny’s Child, Carlos Santana and others.

A Brazilian spider bites people and sends them to the hospital. But there is a hitch. The venom has agents that activate an “hours-long” erection in men (and some types of women -LOL!). In Brazil, the doctors know exactly what’s happening! These men come into the hospital with a crazy boner and they know these men have been trying to fix their erectile dysfunction. The docs are working on extracting the goods from this spider so men can have their bones back. Pause! Now don’t go down to Brazil and get bit. Just wait for the medicine.
I haven’t had a really good EPIC FAIL in a long time. That’s about to change right now. Revenge isn’t always sweet as Jeanne Manunga recently found out. The 25-year-old Santa Ana woman is about to start a one year bid in jail for sending herself threatening text messages. LOL. How? Here is how it went down. Ol’ Jeanne decided that she was going to just do her dang thing and set up her her ex-boy friend and sister-in-law. What she did was, she repeatedly called the police and told them that they were harassing her and showed them these messages on her phone. She eventually got her former man and sis in law arrested on charges that they were making criminal threats. They had to fork over thousands and thousands in legal fees to defend their innocence. Guess what? Jeanne had bought a cell in her sister-in-laws name and sent all the messages to her other phone and got caught. The jury showed no mercy and convicted the fool on three felony counts of false imprisonment by fraud or deceit and two misdemeanor counts of making a false police report. And she has to pay back about $50k in restitution for wasting everybody’s time and money.
Being oppressed in America lends to immediate exposure of America’s harsh realities, which help impregnate the beliefs of the individuals. To believe that the government would infiltrate the Black community and flood it with drugs and guns with the intent of it leading to the community’s could be farfetched until you realize it happened. To believe that local, state and federal authorities would get away with committing subversive acts towards the Black community without being held accountable even after the tactics were supported by fact finding documentation or even recorded through the usage of audio or video is not farfetched at all. Many believe the government helped orchestrate the assassinations of influential Black leaders who fought for both civil and human rights. However, believing that the government had some involvement in the blatant murder of one of Hip-Hop’s most influential musical icons surprisingly is not as believable. Why?
John Potash, a 44-year-old White male, raised in a predominantly Jewish community in Baltimore County penned an interestingly well-written manuscript entitled “The FBI War on Tupac Shakur and Black Leaders.” I had the opportunity to meet John for lunch and converse with him about his book, which I purchased from Everyone’s Place, an independent black owned bookstore located in Baltimore. For obvious reasons, his book is not being carried in any of the major bookstores.
