  1. Honestly, I did not figure Wyclef to be a natural at this video making business. Everytime I would see him on camera with a host, it would always be the typical rapper attitude that would permeate. I’m glad to see that it is not always about portraying what your art is supposed to represent but that you can be a true individual, not afraid to laugh, to show a real side to who you are! Because seeing all the American rap stars go at it, you figure that the bling is all that matters and that without the ghetto ”don’t f# with me” attitude they don’t feel real. I got to say that I respect Wyclef for promoting peace and speaking for the poor in Haïti or elsewhere. But most of all, I get the feeling Wyclef got a sense of the impact he can have on young people. By not being a proponent of the gangsta lifestyle and that showing that rap can be a beautiful art form especially when you stay clear of fowl language. Not that I am for censorship but I think expanding your vocabulary in other realms is beneficiary. Last note in french because I am francophone:

    D’autres collaborations avec Muzion seraient appréciées. Je crois que tu sous-estimes ton habileté à faire des chansons en français. À ce que je sache les Haïtiens ont une très bonne habileté d’apprentissage des langues donc ce serait un défi très réalisable pour un artiste de ta trempe.

    Beaucoup de respect!

  2. I was wondering if you will be doing any rock projects. If so I would like to contribute some tracks. When you get a chance check out one of the songs I want to contribute.
    It’s called “HEY BABY” and it is at myspace.com/quentinspaceboy
    All instruments you hear there were played in real time by myself.

    THANKS SO MUCH AND I HOPE WE CAN DO BUSINESS TOGETHER SOON.

    GOD BLESS………….

  3. Wyclef, thanks for all the good work you are doing around the world. I am from Zambia and have been a fan of yours for 11 years. A lot of people like me are curious about how you keep so cool. I mean why aren’t you angry? Has it not been a temptation with all your success to join the street amada and what do you say to the youngstars who escape from such lifestyles is not at option? I have read your blog The Lion’s Mentality and had these questions.

    PeAcE be STILL

  6. CONSCIENCE:RHYME-HONORING MICHAEL JACKSON- JANET JACKSON -BOYS 2 MEN
    when im rappin it feels like im moonwalking like michael jack
    wit a off the wall formula im bringing that thriller back
    do you remember time when it was heart in a rhyme
    and being bad was talkin somethin real in every single line

    see i cant heal the world but i can give that young kid inspiration
    thru music show em it’s a rhythm in our nation
    while keepin it in control to our number 1 goal
    help your self help another that’s the way love goes

    and when we hit the end of the road from streets hustles to liven free
    we officially married this game on our bending knee
    it wasn’t hard to say goodbye to the old me
    cause now im paid, one sweet day nows my legacy

    i never stop till i get enough
    before i let this game go im a hit it up
    i’ll be lonely at the top em i rich or what
    guess i survive thru the drama plus i did it for my mama .conscience

  7. yo yo clef, what’s up man? I’m studying in France but I’m from Haiti so I’m 100% haitian , just wanna big up ur blog man because I was just visiting it at this time. I remember the first time you came in Haiti with the fugees , it’s was a good time and since this day I said to myself that Bob Marley is the king and the prince lol, anyways just wanna tell you to keep on doing what you are doing man . Bless up to you man and ur staff , Jah live

  8. Hi Wiclef.

    I really love the work that Yele Foundation has done and continues to do for the underpriviledged in Haiti. I wish more people did the same. I belive that Dr. Guy Theodore does the same. Maybe you guys should team up. Haiti would really benefit and believe me, right now more than ever we need it

  9. Wyclef, this is tight! i’m glad you can decode my language man this is very heartning and thoughtfull.

  10. My brother Wyclef, i did not know how else to contact you other than here. I am a fellow Haitian. I was adopted from Haiti about 13 years ago and now I am 21 years senior at Iowa State university. My brother growing up, I have looked up to you as a hero for I always wanted to be like you, from having your voice, your heart and your desire to help our fellow Haitians in Haiti. Often, I get down on myself knowingly I will never do as much as you already done and will continue doing but everyday you give me hope to do my part to help for you are still my Hero. You all good at all that you do, now I think that is a Haitian thing once given a chance to do something :). Brother Jean, I want to do some much but I have done so little. So far as college student I felt I should not wait to make a different when I am out in the real working world but rather utilize the minds of the college students Im around everyday and use them and their minds to go make a different. I want them to utilize what they are learning and part it into practice in our beloved land Haiti. This comin December I was lucky enough to get a group of us college student to go and implement a playground in the village I left 13 years ago. My hopes and dream job is to run a nonp-profit organization for the children in Haiti. They are very close to my heart. Let me tell you, Life will not be the same if I am not involve in the lives of the Haitian people. I hope some day I can meet you and thank you for giving me hope and somebody who I see as a Hero. You my HERO. Keep being you and for that I will follow in your footstep because neither of us will never forgotten where we are from. I hope to possibly here from you someday.

    God bless you my brother and thank thank thank you for giving me hope and inspiration. To see what I am working on while in college please visit my blog

    My GOD PROTECT YOU ALWAYS!

    Your Brother,

  11. Hi Wyclef this is the only way we could think to contact you and we hope this gets to you. We are a hip hop/rap/reggea group from Detroit called the Blood Brother Rebels. One of the main reasons we wanted to contact you was because our “Rebel” mentality and image is something we feel you would be able to relate to. We know that you are very busy but if you can ever find some time check us out on myspace.com/bloodbrotherrebels. Our email is bloodboys88@yahoo.com. We dont know if you are still looking for new talent through your clef records but if you are interested, we are artists that transcend a new school feel but still carry a message and we deliver it through singing and rapping. Hopefully this gets to you, if it does check us out if you can.. thanx

  12. Check 0ut this WYCLEF video. It’s utterly fantastic!!!!

  13. Right now my brother we got to get to the bottom of this to many unnatural coincidences going on The answers are all over the internet,they do this right in our faces,pee on us and tell us its raining. The New World order is at work and working!

  14. am a Rapper from Lacey, WA. Myself and a Partner of mine are putting on a benefit Concert called “Hip Hop for Haiti @ WSU Campus on April 23rd. I know Wyclef is a busy man, and we don’t have the funds to pay for him to come… But it would be a great deal if Wyclef were to come show his support for this concert. It is a concert that will have performances from artists who are concidered, from the streets, hardcore rappers, gangsta’s, or negative. We just want to show that, even though our music might sound harsh, we still would like to do our part in helping people who need help. If Wyclef can please contact me @ myspace.com/1sash7 or 1sash7@gmail.com , that would be great. Hopefully we can come together for this benefit concert.

    Thank you,
    Young SASH

  15. Hello! Am from Belgium. Have followed your career since the Fugees days and your efforts for Haïti well before the earthquake. I know how much love and dedication you put in for your country, how many people you have helped, and can only admire you for that.
    On the musical side… it’s NOT easy to get to see you on stage. You came to Belgium a few years back and I couldn’t make it because of a flu. Two summers ago I got an opportunity to spend a few days in NYC, so I booked my flight according to a concert date of yours (with Jill Scott in Central Park). The day I was leaving, I heard the concert was cancelled! So… 26th June you are scheduled at the Couleur Café Festival in Brussels. I hope this will be 3rd time lucky, and if you’re there, I certainly will be too. Could do with a good vibes concert!
    Again congratulations for all your energy and great work in Haiti.
    P.S. Do you sell Yele Haïti items at concerts? If so, I would be very happy to sell some at Couleur Café . (IF you are there… I have known that festival for 21 years and unfortunately seen many cancellations…)
    NO idea if this message will ever reach you… Almost ran out of patience after having tried on facebook, here, everywhere and kept getting ejected.
    All the best to you!

  16. Hi,

    Two friends and I in the summer of 2005 (after high school) raised $13,000 for Theo’s Work Inc, which is a non-profit for funding a village in Les Cayes, Haiti, called Pwoje Espwa Sud.

    The money went to buying books and creating a library for the children there.

    I have a strong passion to help Haiti and would like to be a part of Wyclef’s goals.

    Please email me back at: chaseandrewperkowski@yahoo.com
    - with any details or contact information that I could possibly acquire to helping Wyclef Jean become president and in helping Haiti.

    I just graduated with a Biological Science Degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder.

    Thanks,
    Chase

  17. Hi Jean Wyclef,

    I just want to say that I support you! And I think you would be the best president for Haiti!
    Stupid rules..

    I’m not from Haïti, but my sister and a couple of friends of mine are so I have a connection with the country!
    I realy admire you and I love the way you put the country and your feelings in your songs!

    I saw you on the Antiliaanse feesten in Belgium and I actually cried when you were doing a speech! So much love for your country, so beautiful!
    Next year I’m making a trip of 3 weeks to Haiti! I want to meet your culture,wich I also like!

    This is just a mail to say that you really have to stay who you are! And I believe in you! You are really amazing :)
    And I hope I’ll meet you one day! Just to give you a hug to let you know how good you are :)

    And maybe I sound like an obsessed fan, I’m not! I’m just a person who cares about Haiti :)

    Greetz,

    Eline from Belgium

I don’t know if your still doing the video bloging or what not. BUT I HOPE THE BEST FOR YOU AND DO WHAT YOU DO! Oh ummmm i know this might sound crazy to you but i had a dream that we had a conversation but i did most of the talking. The dream was me telling you that your missing something… like i felt like you have more to say about what’s currently going in Haiti and the election situaton. Your respond in the dream was really? You replied and said yes. You just shook your head and tears fell down your face. And i started sing your song called gun powder. I don’t know what was that all about. Just hope and pray the best for our haiti manmi cheri nou.
