Listen To This: At A Steady Pace

Filed under: Listen To ThisCris Cab

Better Off Running was one of the first songs we heard from Cris Cab, and it's charm was one of the reasons we become hooked on our fellow Cuban from Miami's music! And we've been listening to him a lot this week!

Sweet, male pop, like John Mayer, with a bit more of a reggae vibe to it!

Check out the good stuff above!

Wyclef Records A Tribute To Trayvon Martin

Filed under: Music MinuteR.I.P.Sad Sad

No matter what your stance on the Trayvon Martin shooting case, a 17 year old boy is no longer with us and it's such a tragic matter of a life cut short.

One person who's speaking out about it all is musician Wyclef, who's usually pretty vocal about controversial situations like this.

The hip hop/reggae artist took to his Twitter today to premiere a song he dedicated to Trayvon and "every 17 year old around the entire globe," called Justice (If You're 17).

In the song, Wyclef sings:

"He could've been the next President, he could've been the next Steve Jobs…neighborhood watcher, if you're 17 with a hoodie on, watch out for the neighborhood watcher…"

Take a listen for yourself (above).

Reminds us a bit of Kelly Rowland's song Stole…such a powerful message.

Wyclef Jean is under fire after new claims against his former charity have arised.

Yele Haiti raised $16 million for relief efforts after the Haiti earthquake.

Reports claim that only 5.1 million went to Haiti relief efforts while some of the money went to Wyclef's family.

The reports also claim that about $350K went to a construction operated by Wyclef's brother in law while another $1 million went to the company Amisphere Farm Labor Inc. that did not file paperwork correctly in Florida to do business.

This company's head recently bought three properties in Florida.

Wyclef continues to deny allegations which first arose in January 2010.

He went on to say the following:

Have we made mistakes? Yes. Did I ever use Yele money for personal benefit? Absolutely not.

Hopefully, for Haiti's sake, he's telling the truth.
