Breaking News!! Wyclef Jean shot in Haiti!
March 20, 2011

HIP-HOP legend Wyclef Jean was shot in the hand last night in Haiti on the eve of the presidential election. We wish Wyclef a speedy recovery.

Here is what was reported on

(Defend.HT)–Distressing reports came in at 12:00am, election day, March 20th 2011, that hip-hop artist Wyclef Jean had been shot and was at a hospital seeking treatment.

News reports claim that Wyclef was passing through Delmas #65 in Port-au-Prince when a hail of gunfire was showered into the car. Jean was in the car with Busta Rhymes, Jimmy Rosemond and other members of his entourage. No other passengers in the vehicle were injured.

The injury was inflicted to Wyclef Jean’s right hand. The same hand that made him a star as a guitar playing revolutionary of hip-hop.

Haiti is set to vote in its presidential runoff on this day and this event only adds to the dramatic circumstances of the tiny island. On Saturday, the formerly exiled President Jean Bertrand Aristide returned to Haiti, stirring up much speculation ahead of the elections.

UPDATE A spokesman for Wyclef Jean says the hip-hop star has been released from the hospital at 2:45am after being treated for a gunshot wound to his hand.

Wyclef is in our new documentary, “The Best Of: BlacksInActionTV.Com” which is coming out later this year. Click Pic below to see the trailer of our new documentary featuring Wyclef.
