Wyclef Jean to Announce Haitian Prez Bid on ‘Larry King Live’

Wyclef Jean’s 2004 song “If I Were President” seemed like a fantasy when it was released. But the Hatian-born rapper/singer/producer will take a major step towards making his song reality this Thursday when he officially announces his plans to run for President of Haiti on Larry King Live.

The former Fugee, who grew up in Brooklyn, has been outspoken in his support of his home country since the devastating earthquake this January and has remained extremely active in relief efforts through his Yele organization.

After years of politically charged lyrics and charitable work through Yele, Haiti’s favorite son now has the opportunity to bring more of his lyrics to reality. —Calvin Stovall
