Get deets inside...
Wyclef Jean, Pras and Lauryn Hill reunited last night to show support for Haitian Presidential candidate, Michel Martelly.
Re-elections in Haiti will be held on Sunday (March 20th), after the original November election results were declared void.
The concert featured Busta Rhymes with the newly reunited Fugees.
In an interview with AllHipHop.com, Wyclef said,
"It's a new era in Haiti and we are campaigning for change for good in my beloved country. I had to come home as a diaspora to make a difference."
Haiti, which was ravaged by a massive earthquake in January of 2010, has been dealing with a cholera epidemic since last October that has killed thousands of people.
Detroit native, Eminem, has teamed with legendary car maker, Chrysler, to produce a t-shirt line to benefit the city of Detroit.
The t-shirt line, featuring "Imported from Detroit" on the chest has been a big seller on Chrysler.com following Eminem's successful Superbowl ad. And
Chrysler has announced that a portion of the proceeds will be given to Boys & Girls Club of Southern Michigan, Habitat for Humanity Detroit, Think Detroit PAL, and Eminem's own Marshall Mathers Foundation.
Paul Rosenberg, Eminem's manager, spoke to AllHipHop.com saying,
"We are very happy to partner with the Chrysler brand in supporting the local communities. The Chrysler brand and The Marshall Mathers Foundation share a parallel commitment to give back to the City of Detroit."
Throughout the year, Chrysler will release several other limited edition designs of the T-shirt along with bumper stickers featuring the slogan as well.
