Haitian-born recording artist Wyclef Jean is asking the public for their prayers and support for those affected by a powerful earthquake that struck Haiti on Tuesday. In a statement sent to GlobalGrind.com Tuesday, the former Fugees rapper said, quote, “I cannot stress enough what a human disaster this is, and idle hands will only make this tragedy worse. The over 2 million people in Port-au-Prince tonight face catastrophe alone. We must act now.” Wyclef is asking the public to donate through a text message campaign organized through his Yele foundation, established to assist his Haiti homeland.

Wyclef says five-dollars will be automatically donated to the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund through those who use their cell phones to text “Yele” to 501501. The public can also visit www.Yele.org to make a donation. The magnitude seven-point-oh earthquake struck near Haiti’s capital of Port-au-Prince. There were several strong aftershocks. President Obama has pledged U.S. assistance to Haiti. Here are some pictures from Haiti..

Fans of  Chris Brown and  T.I. will have to wait a few more months to see their latest cinematic effort. According to Rap-Up.com, the duo’s upcoming film, “Takers,” has been pushed back to a May 14th release date. The project, which was previously titled “Bone Deep,” had been scheduled to arrive next month. “Takers” focuses on a group of criminals who plan a heist at a money depot while looking to shake two detectives hot on their trail. The film also stars Matt Dillon, Paul Walker, Idris Elba, Hayden Christensen, and Zoe Saldana.  Shot out to Woooha.com for the pic’s..

Both Chris Brown and T.I. are looking to put a difficult 2009 behind them. Brown was arrested for assaulting his ex-girlfriend Rihanna last February. He later pled guilty to felony assault and is currently serving five years probation. This past May, T.I. began serving a 366-day sentence for federal weapons charges. He was released to a halfway house last month, and is expected to be a free man by the time “Takers” hits theaters.

Bow Wow hasn’t been in the news for good music lately.  He’s actually been on twitter venting his frustrations with others.  I really need these artists to practice a little more self control!!  I mean come on folks!!  Is it just me, or have artists been acting a FOOL on twitter?  Shout out to Gyant for his report on that. 

Now as far as his music goes, I have to give it to him.  He has some HOT music out there!!!  Check out this new song “No One Else Matters” with Gudda Gudda from Young Money and tell me what you think.  Does it have press play power???  Would you put it on repeat???
