Wyclef Jean has announced the line-up for his second Haitian Benefit Concert, following up last year’s big Fugees concert in that country’s Port-Au-Prince.
Due to political confusion in Haiti, it became virtually impossible to tell if any money from that show ever actually ended up helping poverty-stricken repatriated refugees, as the Fugees had intended. The Haitian-born Wyclef vowed to stage another show in the U.S., and will keep his word on May 16 with a show at the AT&T Amphitheater in Miami. There, Wyclef will be joined by fellow Fugee Pras, Lord Tariq and Peter Gunz, Salt-n-Pepa, up-and-coming rapper Canibus, and MTV’s Bill Bellamy as host. More acts for the show will be named later.
As we first reported on Friday (see “Public Enemy, Busta Rhymes, Wyclef On Board For Smokin’ Grooves”), Wyclef also heads up this summer’s “Smokin’ Grooves” tour launching in July with Busta Rhymes, Gang Starr,
Cypress Hill and the reunited Public Enemy also on board.
