I heard the rumblings but now it is OFFICIAL; Wyclef is running for president! This is so big. I love to see Hip Hop doing major things in the world! Here are the details reported by AHH.
Hip-Hop star Wyclef Jean will announce his bid for the President of Haiti, a source has confirmed with AllHipHop 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. According to sources, the rapper will make his official announcement just two days prior to the country’s August 7th deadline to submit his plan for running for President. Analysts are predicting that Wyclef Jean will easily win the race with his financial connections, influence among the Haitian youth and his political connections around the world.
I really don’t know what is up with the ROC Nation artists and all this ritualistic imagery but its tired and is not as edgy as some die harder blogger fans may declare. Rihanna is struggling and is arguably the artist to date in their camp that has embraced this imagery the most. Below is an account of a media organization;s employee that was granted access to Kanye’s “Power” videoshoot. Illuminati theorists enjoy.
In a coming video for his single “Power” that was created by the artist Marco Brambilla, Mr. West is seen standing imposingly with a heavy chain around his neck. As Mr. West raps the camera slowly zooms out in one continuous, unedited take to reveal him in a classical structure, surrounded by female attendants who are partly or entirely nude; some kneel before him on all fours, others wear devil horns and still others are suspended upside down from the ceiling. The Sword of Damocles hangs precariously over Mr. West’s head, and behind him an unseen executioner is preparing to strike him with a blade.

Here is Kanye with the man responsible for a lot of the imagery you have been seeing.

Toronto’s Metro Newspaper ran an article on the Stat Can report that states between the years 2001 and 2006, “the number of 29 year olds who were either still living at home or had returned to the nest nearly TRIPLED.
