Wyclef Jean: The Ambassador of Peace
Wyclef Jean has superseded his role as a Rapper/Hip-Hop artist. He is one of the few mainstream artists who has utilized his infuluence in music industry to agitate, inspire and uplift the people of Haiti. Music has always been a vehicle for change in the Black Community, but in recent years it has been blinded and overshadowed by money, bling, and debauchery. Wyclef Jean demonstrates a clear distinction from the norm. He doesn’t seem to be as concerned about record sells as he is about the elevation of the Haitian people. God bless that brother. Peace to Haiti!
