Word to Wyclef...

Just watched Dave Chappelle's Block Party last week and loved a scene with Wyclef Jean... He is addressing high school marching band members who performed Jesus Walks with Kanye West...

“Don’t blame the white man for nothing…. I came to this country—I didn’t know how to speak English, I made something of myself. I went to the library…. They got libraries in the ’hood. And if they don’t got libraries, tell your mayor, your governor, whoever in your county, put some more f***in’ libraries in the ’hood.” —as quoted in Library Journal

I loved Wyclef before for his music, but his support for libraries has raised him even higher in my esteem. The movie is wonderful fun if you like hip-hop, want to see a rockin' Fugees reunion, and aren't expecting the Chappelle show.
