Wyclef Jean Talks About His Complicated Relationship With Lauryn Hill

Wyclef Jean was in studio to talk about his book 'Purpose: An Immigrant's Story'. He spoke about Haiti, his controversial charity, his unsuccessful run for the Presidency there, the rise of the Fugees and his solo career. Wyclef is upfront about his complicated relationship with Lauryn Hill, the responsibility he takes for it, and shares some thoughts on why she's removed herself from the spotlight of the music industry she had conquered.

In this clip, Wyclef talks about...

Lauryn Hill
I'm not putting anything in there that you didn't speculate or that you didn't talk about or know...you have Marvin Gaye and Tammy Tyrell, you have Prince and Sheila E....when you're in a group...and you're 24/7 in the studio and doiing music and you're like 19 or 20 and catching a vibe...automatically there is always going to be some sort of passion...is she picks up the phone right now and says I need your help with something I would jump in two seconds to do it.

'The MisEducation of Lauryn Hill' being about him
The way that I can aswer this question because I'm a big fan of Bill Clinton. When they asked Bill Clinton the weed question what did he say...that's my answer, I didn't inhale! I don't know what you're talking about!
