Lauryn Hill Finally Responds to Wyclef Jean’s Book [Video]

Rucuss staffNovember 12, 2012

Lauryn Hill took a moment during her Life Is Good/Black Rage tour with Nas to address recent claims made against her by former Fugees member Wyclef Jean.

Wyclef made claims against Hill in his autobiography, Purpose: An Immigrant’s Story, that she lied to him about being the father of her first child, Zion. Rohan Marley, who is Zion’s father, responded to Wyclef’s claims by saying ‘he knew the child was his and he was given the thumbs up by Wyclef to be with Hill.’

Lauryn remained quiet until now. She decided to address claims made by Wyclef about her son’s paturnity, being bi-polar and that she was the reason why the Fugees broke up during her performance in Dallas.

In the midst of performing, Hill explained to fans why she has never responded to Wyclef and that she believes in taking the high road.

Lauryn said:

“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.”
