The former Fugees member will discuss his future with CNN's Larry King tonight. NPR's Renee Montagne asked AP's Haiti correspondent Jonathan Katz about Jean's background and prospects:
KATZ: The music that he's done certainly has a political element to it. And he's been involved in some fairly political aspects of Haitian life. In 2007 he was made an ambassador-at-large by President Rene Preval; his charity aid group Yele Haiti is very active, so it's not completely out of character with the way he's talked and the way he's acted.
