Former Fugees member Wyclef Jean has been promoting his explosive autobiography, “Purpose.” Part of the appeal of the book is Jean’s claims Lauryn Hill tried to tell him he was the father of her first child before she found out it was Rohan Marley‘s. Lauryn Hill finally responded to Wyclef’s claims during a stop on her joint tour with Nas.
Besides Wyclef Jean’s accusations about Hill’s sexual irresponsibility, Jean also claimed Hill was the main reason The Fugees remains broken up is because of Ms. Hill. in the book, he goes on to say he believes Lauryn Hill suffers from Bi-polar Disorder. Though many were hoping for an immediate response to Wyclef’s words, Hill hasn’t said too much of anything concerning the matter.
Hill finally addressed the book in her signature odd fashion. Lauryn Hill took some time out of her set during the “Life is Good/Black Rage Tour” to subliminally check Wyclef. Hill stated:
When you are on the other side of liberation, just make sure you are not late. Be careful how you judge, there is a lot of deception out there. A lot of misunderstanding out there. A lot of miscommunication out there. A lot of false information out there. And notice, out of all the people who talk talk talk, who’s the silent one. There’s a lot of chat, but me….
And you know why? Let me tell you why I don’t chat back. Because I know that my brothers and my sisters are often times pawns in a bigger scheme so when they, under pressure, attack me, I love them still. It’s called the high road. Try taking it sometimes.
I’m not going to play my hand like the suppressive system would have me play my hand. Because I know [about] the oppression that took place in Haiti, and Jamaica, and America, and Africa and Europe. So just be patient. The truth always surfaces and especially, all you black folks out there who have had black mothers who carried you through thick and thin, when the system wanted to call them crazy, just remember that…
You know I know I’m not crazy, that’s why I can use the word so freely. Crazy like a fox? Ahead of the curve. People don’t like people that’s ahead of the curve but unfortunately that’s not my problem.
Basically, Lauryn Hill told Wyclef and anybody else judging her to mind your damn business! What do you think about Lauryn Hill’s response?
