Some of you may not have known that former Fugees member, Wyclef Jean, has an autobiography that comes out today entitled, Purpose

Trust me, if you were unaware of this you weren't the only one.  I had absolutely no clue about the book until I read about it yesterday on BlackAmericaWeb.

Honestly, I was trying to figure out what was so interesting about Wyclef’s life that he felt the need to write an autobiography.  I mean ever since the earthquake in Haiti, we really haven’t heard much from him.

So I began to read what was posted about the book to see if there was anything that would remotely be intriguing and of course the first topic that came up is the real reason (or at least according to Wyclef) as to why the Fugees broke up.

So here’s Wyclef’s explanation as to why the Fugees broke up:

Wyclef claims Lauryn tricked him into believing her firstborn son was his, when, in fact, the father was Rohan Marley.

“In that moment something died between us. I was married and Lauryn and I were having an affair, but she led me to believe that the baby was mine, and I couldn’t forgive that,” Jean writes in “Purpose.”
Are you serious right now, Wyclef?

So let me get this straight.  You were a married man having unprotected sex with a woman who wasn’t your wife, but yet you can fix your mouth to call the other woman a liar.

I’m confused.  Isn’t that the pot calling the kettle, sir?

So the reason the Fugees broke up is because Lauryn Hill lied to you, but it was okay for you to lie to your wife?  Are you seriously trying to play yourself as the victim in this scenario?  I’m going to have to hit your ass with the, “Negro Please!”

Are you that desperate to sell books that you feel the need to exploit Lauryn Hill in other to make yourself appear as a victim?  I’m sure Lauryn didn’t have to put a gun to your head to make you sleep with her.  You probably were a willing participant in that matter.

So, sir, you can save your revisionist history for someone who actually cares about anything you have to say.

Lauryn Hill never mentions your name, but for some reason you can’t seem to keep her name out your mouth.  That’s very curious to me.



  1. why is he writing this book again?
    Purpose(ly) to call people out?

  2. To put it mildly, Wyclef ain't shit!!! He is a piss poor excuse of a man. He won't ever get my support, not that I supported him before. He is a shady bastard, running off with the Haiti, now dogging Lauryn. As if she doesn't have enough issues. Spewing hate to sell a book is disgusting. So who's going to buy his book? *crickets*
