Despite Making Amends With Former Bandmate Pras Recently, Wyclef Jean Says "The Fugees Are Not Meant To Be" / Wyclef Jean and Pras make peace on Haiti flight

Creative differences have broken up some of the best bands in music history.

The Beatles, Van Halen, Rage Against The Machine, The Clash, The Police, Cream, Soundgarden and Guns-N-Roses to name a few.

While some bands move forward with new members or reform years later. The spark that made them great in the first place is almost never there again.

Add The Fugees to that list, and this time it really does look like it's for good.

The trio of Wyclef Jean, Pras and Lauryn Hill have ego that won't allow them to work together.

There were rumors of a Wyclef and Lauryn romance during the group's early years. Who knows what role that could have played in bringing the group down.

The group released two albums. 'Blunted On Reality' in 1994 then 'The Score' in 1996.

Bono of U2 called the band the hip hop version of The Beatles.

'The Score' became a huge hit, selling over 15 million copies worldwide. But then right at the peak of their popularity the group broke up in 1997.

They all pursued solo careers, then reunited briefly in 2004 at Dave Chappelle's Block Party in Brooklyn, then went their own ways again.

Pras and Wyclef didn't speak to each other for five years, until recently finding themselves on the same flight to their native country of Haiti.

The two took the opportunity to mend their friendship.

"I saw Pras on the flight and as a Fugees member I didn't know whether to elbow him, shoot him or give him a kiss and we gave a hug," Wyclef told Starpulse. "When it comes to Lauryn and Pras, it's my childhood, they always bring me to that place.

"At the end of the day Pras is my brother and Lauryn is my sister, despite what the media say. The Fugees are not meant to be. We're rock stars from a locked group. You're going to have egos and differences but at the end of the day I love them both very much."


Pras Wyclef Jean1 Wyclef Jean, Pras Michel Make Peace For Haiti

Wyclef Jean put aside his differences with his former Fugees bandmate Pras after they boarded the same plane to Haiti this week.

The hip-hop stars sat next to one another on a jet to their native country, where they will mark a year since the Caribbean nation was devastated by a massive earthquake.

Jean admits he was moved to make peace with Pras.

In a post on Twitter, he writes, "On my way 2 Haiti, ran into Praz (sic), what should I do make peace or go sit somewhere Else! I made peace 4 Haiti!"

The former bandmates both posted snaps of themselves together on their Twitter pages, with Pras captioning his photo: "Yo Clef we should of (sic) flown privately ... I'm sorry man for criticizing you for flying privately to Haiti."

The rappers left the group -- which also featured Lauryn Hill -- in 1997, before getting back together in 2004 for a short-lived reunion. They appeared to have fallen out last year when Pras refused to support Jean in his bid for the Haitian presidency.

Too bad...this was the last of the "conscious" Rap/R&B groups from "back in the day".  They don't have them "like this" anymore.  SMH.

yea then watch clef start trash talking pras all over again when its all said and done. f****** premadonna. Any man that acts like what i saw for the telethon for haiti will lose my respect just like how i lost all respect for clef. A lot of people has done a lot to help haiti, but they do it privately and don't seek the limelight of the media like clef does.
