Lauryn-Hill and Wyclef-Jean

Hip-Hop Rumors: Are Lauryn Hill And Wyclef Jean Still Beefing?

Wyclef Jean and Lauryn Hill have a troubled history with one another, with Wyclef at one point  publicly urging Lauryn Hill to get “mental help.” With the resurgence of Hill’s career and years between their last spat, one would think that the two would have sat down and worked out their differences by now. Unfortunately, it looks like that is not the case.

Both Wyclef and Lauryn Hill were present at the recent funeral for business architect Chris Lighty, but Wyclef admits that the two did not take a moment to greet each other. Check out what he told Montreality in a recent interview:

“At the funeral It was just so many people. I was in the section next to Missy [Elliott], Lyor Cohen…it was so many people that it was hard for everybody to intertwine at once.”

That’s a pretty cryptic answer, but it seems that they are still not on speaking terms. Wyclef also commented on Hill’s recent tax issues. Check out what he below:

“Actually, you know, I ain’t speak to Lauryn. It’s been a minute. I heard about the little drama she got in the news, wishing her better on that. You know? Actually, I was on the phone with Pras earlier. It’s all good. Nothing but love for the Fugees.”

Glad to see that, at the very least, Wyclef and Pras are still on good terms. Pras was also outspoken about Hill’s $1.8 million tax trouble. He spoke to Global Grind about her exuberant bail.

I’m bugging! I can’t believe it! I’m sitting here on a plane to L.A. listening to Phil Collins and Philip Bailey “Easy Lover” on my iPod. But I don’t believe she’ll go to jail, but d*mn bail is 150K?! Zimmerman was about the same. Go figure! … This is crazy!!

I’m still hoping that Wyclef and Lauryn can straighten out their differences. How amazing would a new Fugees album be?

You can check out the full interview with Wyclef below, where he also speaks about his relationship with Chris Lighty.

    It shouldn’t matter if there is a new fugee album or not. Wyclef needs to pick up that phone and call his old bandmate. At the very least wish her well. He was running for president of Haiti. He should learn to be diplomatic. Not complain about too many people in the way at the funeral. wtf kinda shit is that?

      Sometimes you cant be diplomatic with someone that has mental issues. You gotta just leave some people alone and hope they find their way.

      • brotha_man

        or the fact that he stole money from her

  • Wyclef = Subject of Lauryn’s Ex-Factor
    Also reason for Fugee Break Up.

    Never get your meat where you make your bread.

    Fugee album would be nice though!

    my mom was OD strict with me and my lil brothers growing up, so i was never allowed to have my own rap tapes or albums, but in 7th grade my older brother Carlos took me out to his car and we drove around the hood for like 45 minutes just so he can let me listen to the Fugees album, which had just come out at the time. that dAY REALLy changed my life. My big brother passed away about 6 years ago, but every sunday I go to his grave, take a shot of the hen rock, pour some out for him, plant flowers and I listen to a couple songs from the score. EVen when I got an RIP tattoo for him, i got it with one of wyclef’s lyrics. the fugues will always be special to me just bc it was my first album and bc of the connection it gives me to my brother. I wish they would come out with a new album, but at the same time, the score was so special, idk if they can top that. fugees will always be legends to me though. every time I’m in the whip or at the gym and they come on my iPod it bring me back to my brother. RIP CARLOS

    You MIGHT get a Detox album before the Fugees ever get back together.

    • W.E.B. Du Bois

      who cares ? c’mon, really, who cares ?

    • Sosa_Limone

      lol i am starting to wonder if we will ever get either one… to keep it a hunnid though, i think Dre waited way too long.. pple are starting to lose interest, and its been built up so much, there is no way it can live up to expectations… fugees cd is one of the best selling hiphop cds of all time…. its hard topping that too..

  • Frank

    that’s not a cryptic answer. That’s a “it was crazy as hell mad people and not the time to talk about us” answer.

  • toreal

    Lauryn does have a mental illness. She needs to get help.

  • I think Lauryn is Bi-Polar..her mood swings on stage hint at it a lot..that’s not something you can reason with. Her soon to be former husband has also alluded to the fact that she’s troubled..you can’t really patch things up with someone whose chemicals are unbalanced and can’t be logical. I wish her the best I think she has more talent than any female currently in the industry period..but sometimes the most gifted human being have the biggest inner demons…still occasionally spit to that ready or not instrumental..man i miss them days.

    Lauren looks terrible…like she having a hard ass life…she looks like a recovering fiend or alky or something…please growvya hairbout Lauren…stop crying over past and present dick and get creative…and for the record Wyclef doesn’t have to reach out to anyone…their history is over…the legacy stands…keep on moving by soul 2 soul, listen to it and overstand

    • churchboy2

      I think you too easily excuse Wyclef’s known thievery… Diamond D is STILL waiting to get paid from the score. Clef is not as innocent as you make him out to be.

  • Synista

    if heathCLEF is really concerned maybe he should offer to pay her taxes with the money he stole from people who donated to the earthquake victims of haiti.

    For those saying he should pick up the phone…last I checked phones work both ways…doubt if their situation would ever be resolved..and I dont think there was any cryptic msg..they were at the funeral…they didnt cross paths…bottom line
