They will join a host of hip-hop acts including Pharrell Williams, Chris Brown and Queen Latifah at the Black Entertainment TV (BET) two hour event ‘SOS Saving OurSelves – Help for Haiti‘, which will be broadcast live from Miami on February 5. The event will air on US TV channels MTV, VH1, BET and Centric at 8pm EST.
The group, which featured the rapper, his Haitian cousin Pras Michel and Lauryn Hill, split up in 1997. He told BBC Radio 1Xtra: “Everyone is doing different relief and when the time is right, the vibe is right, The Fugees should definitely contribute a single to go into Yele Haiti (Wyclef Jean’s charity). I think it would raise a lot of money.” The rapper helped actor George Clooney organise the previous ‘Hope For Haiti Now’ telethon and gig, which took place earlier this month. It has so far raised $66m (£42.1m), reports BBC News.
I wonder what song(s) Lil Wayne will perform… could it be a brand new song dedicated to the victims of Haiti ❓
