Wyclef Explains Controversial Speedo Bike Photo

(AllHipHop News) They say a picture says a thousand words, and while that may be true, Hip-Hop fans and media needed some explaining when Wyclef posed on his Ducati motorcycle in his Speedo a few months back.

Recently on an episode of Sway in the Morning on Shade 45 Radio, Sway brought up the suspicious photo that set the internet on fire and left Wyclef with some explaining to do.

“It was Speedo’s, it wasn’t briefs.  That day I literally saw my Twitter split in half. I was like man, the sea has parted,” Wyclef explained to Sway.

While rappers and media alike were shocked by the photo, Wyclef says that it was all just a joke, and that people take things to seriously.

“Sway you know me, you know I’m the dude with the Fugees that will bring a goat on stage as a mascot.  I think what happens is the idea where you are human and I think people take us [artists] so serious, to the point that they forget we like to have fun. It’s ok to goof yourself,” Wyclef told Sway on Shade 45 radio.

Most recently Wyclef released his April Showers mixtape which features, T.I., Waka Flocka Flame, Mobb Deep, Trae Tha Truth, Kirko Bangz, King Los, Troy Ave, Maino, Haitian Fresh, Murda Mook and others.

On the project Wyclef introduces new talent signed to his Refugee La Republique Records label and features production from a host of upcoming talented producers including, Young Chop of Chief Keef’s camp.

Included on the project are the previously released tracks “Hip Hop” and “Mid Life Crisis” as well as other brand new music from Wyclef.
