Fugees Mk 2?
Everyone's favourite HipHop Soul supergroup (if they aren't, why not?!), The Fugees, are apparently not coming back according to sources close to Wyclef. He's allegedly got so frustrated with waiting on Lauryn and Pras that instead, he wants to start a new Fugees-esque supergroup that would feature 'Clef alongside 'some other female' and omnipresent hook king of the moment - Akon. Problem is, sems like 'Clef forgot to speak to Akon about it:
"He just be saying [shizzle] like that just to be creating a rumor just to exaggerate the hype, 'cause everybody miss the Fugees," Akon told SOHH. "Being that he was one of the key players of putting that group together, he kinda wanna keep that legacy alive, kinda like Elvis or Pac. So I think he just be doing it just to be bull[shizzle]ing."
BUT he went on to say:
"I don't think there's no truth to it," he continued. "But if he ever considered it, I would do it. That's my man since way back. I would do it on the strength to show people that it could happen again."
So if this happens, would Akon and Wyclef work well together or would it be too corny? Both of them have the capacity to be cheesier than Stilton but I suppose if we had a female member who could balance it out, then we'd be getting some quality music. After seeing her performance at Dave Chappelle's Block Party, I think Jill Scott would smash that role to pieces, but what do you think? Is she the right person? Who should replace Lauryn Hill in Fugees mk2?
