(AllHipHop News) Wyclef Jean will headline a controversial concert at the University of Colorado on April 20, also known as “4/20.”
Wyclef will hit the stage on “4/20,” which is also a popular marijuana smoking holiday.
According to the University, the $150,000 concert featuring Wyclef is meant to serve as a distraction from smoking marijuana that day.
“We are asking students to support us in the effort to protect the reputation of our institution and do it by attending a great free concert,” said Carly Robinson.
A variety of rappers celebrate the holiday, in particular Cypress Hill and Snoop Dogg, who is even releasing a free marijuana themed EP on the holiday.

According to The Daily Camera newspaper in Boulder, the annual gathering at the University of Colorado drew over 10,000 people last year and is the largest celebration on a college campus in the country.
The day of the concert featuring Wyclef, students will be find up to $100 if they are caught smoking on campus.
The Wyclef Jean concert on 4/20 takes place from 2 to 6 p.m. at the Coors Events Center at CU-Boulder.
Organizers are planning to stop entry at 4 p.m., to ensure those the venue do not light up at 4:20 p.m.
