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.

United Airlines Gives Less Important Passengers' Seats To Wyclef Jean

united gives passengers seats to wyclef jean


Passengers who were SUPPOSED to be on a recent United Airlines flight are speaking out because the airline gave Wyclef Jean their seats!

Here's what one of the passengers had to say about it:

"We were at the gate, about to board, and then they took his group and they tore up our boarding passes. We did not receive any compensation, hotel — nothing."

"Wyclef turned around and said, 'What’s happening, what’s going on?' before he boarded. The flight agent told us, 'Political celebrities are treated differently.'"

And here's what a United rep had to say about the incident:

"The customers [who were] denied boarding arrived at the gate within the final 10 minutes before departure."

We are not impressed! If those passengers purchased those seats, then who cares if they arrived at the gate 10 minutes before departure? Obviously they were still letting people onboard, since the more important customer got a seat.

Not cool, United. Not cool AT ALL.
