Wyclef is releasing a puffed-up alternate history EP about his political run for President of Haiti. Pras is telling the Daily News that he wants to assassinate world leaders. Not the greatest state of affairs, but at least this clears the way for Ms. Lauryn Hill to regain her status as the most together Fugee, and she seems well on her way; after disappearing from the public eye amid rumors of mental instability and religious extremism, she pulled some praise for her performances at this summer’s Rock the Bells festival. Now in her first attempt at touring since her abruptly cancelled 10-date European tour last year, she’s hitting our metropolis hard with six shows in New York and one in Montclair, New Jersey; tonight, she begins a three-night run at the venerable Blue Note jazz club. Fingers crossed for mutual goodwill and a Miseducation fix.
