*It was a historic night at the Global Citizen Festival in New York City on Saturday, as acclaimed hip-hop group Fugees took the stage together.
The trio of Ms. Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean, and Pras Michel delivered an electric, high-energy set featuring hits like “Ready or Not,” “Fu-Gee-La,” and “Killing Me Softly.”
The Fugees used the platform to send an important message encouraging sovereign countries to take control of their natural resources.
Wyclef Jean rallied the crowd to support relief efforts in Haiti as the country faces political unrest and instability. He emphasized the need for Haitians to shape their own destiny amid foreign interests in the region.
Onstage, the three members showed great chemistry and enthusiasm, indicating they are ready to tour together again.
Tonight’s appearance at the Global Citizen Festival isn’t the first time The Fugees have reunited. Earlier this Summer, at the annual Roots Picnic in Philadelphia on June 3, Lauryn, Wyclef, and Pras served up their catalog of classics for surprised fans.
The performance came after Pras was recently found guilty of fraud and conspiracy. We reported previously… the hip-hop star was convicted on ten criminal counts “of funneling money from a now-fugitive Malaysian financer through straw donors to Barack Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign, then trying to squelch a Justice Department investigation and influence an extradition case on behalf of China under the Trump administration,” according to the AP.
The hip-hop star faces up to 20 years in prison. Meanwhile, Pras denied being an FBI or CIA informant in an interview with TMZ.
