Lauryn Hill's indirect message to Wyclef Jean: 'It's called the high road, try taking it'
In September, Wyclef Jean released his autobiography, Purpose: An Immigrant’s Story, in which he slammed his former Fugees band mate and lover Lauryn Hill.
In his book Jean said that Hill tricked him into believing her firstborn son Zion, was his, when in fact the father was Bob Marley’s son, Rohan Marley.
Hill has remained quiet regarding Jean’s allegations until now. During a recent concert in Dallas the “Ex-Factor” singer sent what many are calling an indirect message to Jean.
“A lot of misunderstanding out there. A lot of miscommunication out there. A lot of false information out there. And notice, out of all the people who talk talk talk, who’s the silent one,” Hill said.
“There’s a lot of chatter, but me…. And you know why? Let me tell you why I don’t chat back. Because I know that my brothers and my sisters are often times pawns in a bigger scheme so when they, under pressure, attack me. It’s called the high road. Try taking it sometimes.”
Hill then went on to talk about the “suppressive system” that she believes is in place throughout the world and then told the audience she is not crazy.
“I’m not going to play my hand like the suppressive system would have me play my hand. Because I know the oppression that took place in Haiti, and Jamaica, and America, and Africa and Europe,” Hill revealed. “So just be patient… And the truth always surface…You know I know I’m not crazy, that’s why I can use the word so freely.”
