Wyclef Campaigns for President in a Tracksuit

How will Wyclef's campaign for the Haitian presidency differ from that of his more-experienced, non-chart-topping competitors? Well, for one, he's not going to be so unnecessarily stuffy about the whole thing: In a new AP video, Clef elegantly rocks a low-key alternative to the customary dark suit — namely, an Adidas tracksuit and Beats by Dre headphones — while sleepily and cheerily discussing his candidacy with phrases like “galvanizing the diaspora” and “Haiti is open for business.” Also, take note: “Celebrity has taught me that politics is poli-tricks.” [RapRadar]
