    I'm trying to make some good journalism and tell people that Busta Rhymes, Spliff Stars might be in the car when that incident occurred but no one seems to notice or even consider that side of the story and maybe try to reach Busta... so below is the link to the video in which you can see Busta, Spliff performing on stage and Wyclef in the background in support of Presidential candidate Michel Martelly http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAhqpYkWlLI

    GLAD BRUH MAN IS OK.. Musician yes guitar player yes. Just moved back to Hollywood California. Material is done for an album just about, but I am also offering my guitar servies for studio session work, gigs for people needing a guitar player, touring, or even joining or starting a band. Don't ou know how many artists are going with the live band sound these days? I'm still all about the dj's and producers making beats but lets put some live guitar over that stuff rather it be in the studio or live on stage. Here is the link to my youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=bryantc1000&aq=f here you will see things like soul from a guitar player, and a tribute to people like 2 pac, jimi hendrix, and yes even Michael Jackson. Check it out let me know if your interested. My email is leaving.carter@gmail.com Thank you, Bryant C

      Your the whack ass "Nigga." Oh can i not say that cuz im white? Wait are you talking about Racism? The dark issues which Wyclef Jean so gratefully tried to fucking stand up for? Go fuck yourself. Amen to Wyclef for trying to actually make a fucking difference. Not like half these whack ass rappers try and say they do.

    People stop talking trash... Look I'm Haitian and I don't know what really happened to Clef but I'm listening to the local news in Haiti and it is confirmed that Busta Rhymes was also with him in the car when the incident occured so I guess more updates are yet to come.

    "Someone please call 9-1-1, I just got shot down... and the bullets, through my..... HAND?" Doesn't have the same ring to it

  • ninja

    Haiti's been a lost cause for a long time.

  • tonyghost19

    SOMEONE PLEASE CALL 911!!!!

  • REAL

    Not surprising... Obviously Clef they don't want you in Haiti & they probably was a warning shot for U to get up outta there. I since a little sarcasm from Pras message though.

    • REAL

      @mhunterjr - #1 Who said it was 1 person? Just because he got a bullet wound doesn't mean only 1 person was tryin' 2 shoot em'. #2 Its well publicized that other Haiti reps don't want him in Haiti. Clef even got celebrity crackers disputing Clef was in Haiti during much of the hurricane. Clef does not exactly get red carpet treatment in Haiti & this incident proves my point. You should read more before you comment.

    • mhunterjr

      so the actions of one person speaks for the entire country?

    Niggas in Haiti dont shoot hands bruh...

  • james

  • Ramy D
