Wyclef Jean Running For President…Of Haiti!!!Hip-Hop’s Very First Presidential Candidate!

It is being reported that musician and hip-hop star Wyclef Jean,37, is considering, and HAS REGISTERED his candidacy for the position of President of Haiti.(SOURCE)

The current President René Préval is barred by law, from seeking a third term in office, which means the time is right for Wyclef to step in.

If he wins this will make him the first hip-hop star to ever run a whole country as the head of state of a legitimate democracy!

Wyclef has issued a statement, stating that he has not officially decided yet but he added that he has filled out the necessary paperwork in case he does decide to move forward with a candidacy.

“Wyclef’s commitment to his homeland and its youth is boundless, and he will remain its greatest supporter regardless of whether he is part of the government moving forward,” said a statement released by his foundation.  “At this time, Wyclef Jean has not announced his intent to run for Haitian president. If and when a decision is made, media will be alerted immediately.  Please let us know if we can help with anything else.”(SOURCE)

...Sounds like he’s running to me!

Good Luck Wyclef…You are always breaking new ground in the hip-hop game!!!..this will probably be a little more challenging than your old-school beef with LLCool  J!
