Hip-hop legend Wyclef Jean made a surprise visit to the campus of Howard University this week to promote his upcoming album, "Carnival 3."
On Wednesday, he casually walked on Howard's campus as if he were one of its students before stopping to greet them on the campus's Caribbean tree. Whitney Griffith, president of the school's Caribbean Student Association, said Jean reached out to the association, asking if he could connect with it on campus.
He did just that. Jean asked students to step forward and perform their own rap verses in a cypher-type performance. Afterwards, the former Fugee dropped a few bars of his own. Jean took a shot at President Trump, rapping, “I ain't taking no Z’s because Donald Trump’s outside.”
He also made spoke about the devastation in the Caribbean, saying the root of the problem is climate change.
"Ya’ll have to really understand climate change is really real and we really have to take focus," Jean said. "'Cause every time is happens, that's when we talk about the disaster. We need to really work on prevention."
The "Two Wrongs" singer is getting back into music after taking a stab at politics. In 2010, he ran unsuccessfully for president of his home country, Haiti.
