Wyclef Jean’s ill-fated bid to be president of Haiti may be over, but he hasn’t forgotten those who wished failure on him during his attempt. Jean is clearly angry, even verging into potentially libelous territory with his words for Sean Penn, and he also made some barbed comments on his Fugees bandmate, Pras.
Jean’s words for Penn and Pras were delivered in song, during a reworked version of his 2004 song “President,” which he performed on Hot 97’s On the Reggae Tip concert this past Friday (Sept. 4). "I got a message for Sean Penn,” he sang. “Maybe he ain't see me in Haiti because he was too busy sniffing cocaine.”
"I got a message for Praswell,” he continued. “Even though you don't want to support me, I got love for you, even though you only kicked 8 bars in the Fugees.” Ouch. There’s clearly no love lost here, perhaps unsurprisingly, and it’s likely to just be a question of time before rebuttals are issued from Penn and Pras.
