Ex-Fugee Pras on why celebrities stormed Haiti's 2010 election
Former Fugee Pras joins Shad to discuss the documentary Sweet Micky for President. Pras, who is of Haitian descent, felt compelled to get political following the 2010 earthquake that devastated the Caribbean nation.
He persuaded Haitian entertainer Michel Martelly aka "Sweet Micky" to run for President — but unbeknownst to Pras, his bandmate and "brother" Wyclef Jean had also thrown his hat into the Presidential ring.
His film tells the story of Haiti's historic 2010 election and two group mates who suddenly found themselves polls apart.
