In recent news, Wyclef Jean has provided an update on his former Fugees bandmate Pras Michel, and has also stated that he will not be participating in a biopic about the iconic hip-hop group.
The Fugees, which included Wyclef Jean, Pras Michel, and Lauryn Hill, was one of the most successful hip-hop groups of the 1990s. The group released two albums, Blunted on Reality (1994) and The Score (1996), which both achieved critical acclaim and commercial success.
Wyclef Jean recently spoke with HipHopDX about the Fugees and his former bandmate Pras Michel, who has been embroiled in a legal battle with the U.S. government over alleged involvement in a money laundering scheme. Jean stated that he had been in contact with Pras and that he was “holding up” despite the legal issues.
Jean also addressed the possibility of a Fugees biopic, saying that he would not be participating in any such film. He stated that the group’s legacy is “too sacred” to be portrayed on the big screen.
The Fugees’ legacy continues to live on through their music and their influence on hip-hop culture. While a biopic may not be in the cards, fans of the group can still look forward to hearing new music from Wyclef Jean and Pras Michel.
