Fugees front man Wyclef Jean took a stroll down memory lane in a recent interview as he remembered the Fugees early days. Clef also spoke on his current relationship with Pras and revealed that despite not having spoken to her in a long while, he has nothing but love for Lauryn Hill and wishes her the best.
In the mid-1990s, the Fugees took the hip-hop world by storm with their Grammy-winning album, The Score. They haven’t released another official album in the more than 15 years, since, however, and Wyclef recently spoke on where his relationship with former groupmate Lauryn Hill currently stands.
“Actually, I ain’t speak to Lauryn—it’s been a minute,” he told VladTV. “I heard about a little drama she got in the news, wishing her [the best] on that. I was on the phone with Pras earlier. It’s all good. Nothin’ but love for the Fugees.”
Though the two haven’t been in contact in some time, that didn’t cloud the Haitian musician’s positive memories of their times together.
“When we first was coming out, I basically went to a live stock store, and I bought a goat,” he reminisced, beginning what he said was one of his favorite stories. “I brought the goat back to the hood, and then I put a Fugees t-shirt on the goat with some shades, and I took the goat to New York, because we was opening up for a group called Jodeci. Think about that, you in a club, and two Haitians and one American show up, and before the rock, you see a goat come out on stage with a green t-shirt on it. The funny part of the story, the goat shitted on the entire stage, and the crowd was pissed off.”
Although it seems like this Fugees’ reunion that we’ve all been hoping for for years is out of reach, it’s good to know that there’s no bad blood between the crew.
