This just in...: T.I. is officially off Virgin FreeFest lineup; Wyclef gives up Haitian presidential bid


Wyclef Jean (Ramon Espinosa/AP)


  • T.I. has vanished from the lineup for Saturday's Virgin Mobile FreeFest at Merriweather Post Pavilion, our colleague David Malitz reports. Organizers had held out hopes the rapper would make the show despite his recent drug arrest while on probation, but said that his reps were apparently preparing for a court hearing this week and unable to commit. If he can free himself up, the Virgin folks said, "we'll gladly adjust the schedule."

  • Wyclef Jean has given up his effort to run for president in his home country of Haiti, a month after officials ruled he didn't meet the residency requirements. Making the best of it, though, he told the BBC his next album will be called "If I Were President."

    I'm TOO tired of seeing junkies not appreciate the chances they've been given to rehabilitate themslves. Obviously T.I. didn't think much of his probation, or his 5 children AND new bride, to do the right thing, so let him serve his time, & understand that freedom is a privelege... not a right. Maybe next time when he gets out, he'll count his blessings.
