2010 has been an extraordinary year for Wyclef Jean. Always proud of his Haitian roots, he was in the forefront of helping to raise money to rebuild the nation after the January earthquake devastated it. In August, he ran a brief, controversial campaign for president of Haiti before moving music back to the front-burner and working on a new EP about his bid, “If I Were President: My Haitian Experience.” With his new record due Dec. 7 and a new politically-themed song, “Election Time,” out, it was the perfect time for a Live Q&A with Wyclef. Billboard Editorial Director Bill Werde (@bwerde on Twitter) sat down with Wyclef at Billboard HQ on Nov. 19 to play tunes, talk about music and politics, and answer your tweeted questions live on camera.
