I recently got a chance to chat with the outspoken hip hop institution known as Wyclef Jean. Let’s just cut right to the goods: He says Lauren Hill is bipolar, Barrack is the next president and Celine should give him a call!

Wyclef dreams of a Fugees reunion and can take them to the Promised Land – but first, he says, Lauren Hill has got to get her act together. He’s not backing down about his earlier statement that Lauren is bipolar and says she should be happy someone is telling her the truth and looking out for her best interests.

OKAY, so he might not be in Lauren Hill’s good books these days, but ‘Clef’s definitely joining the Obamanation. He says the Democratic frontrunner will be the next U.S. President, hands down, and that he should be judged on his character and not his colour. The Haitian sensation likens Barrack to JFK.

From America to Canada, Wyclef told me to track down Nelly Furtado and ask her about the “Wyclef Story.” With further prodding, I found out what that meant…Apparently Wyclef was the one who encouraged Nelly to flex her hip hop muscles, advising, “That’s the zone. Stay in the zone.” following her collaboration with Miss Elliott.

And speaking of collaborations…There’s another track ‘Clef is itching to scratch – he’s keen on Celine! Sure she might be a bit over the top, but he says when she sings – it’s like an angel on earth. That’s some pretty high praise from a man who’s worked with the best of the best.
