Wyclef Jean – “The Ring” music video
“The smile in my face, behind my back, they hate us. But like Bernie Mac said, ‘I ain’t scared of you motherf**kers. Little Haiti to Sicily, Big Pun, he was a friend to me. Fat Joe, he called me literally, put me on a track instantly. Caribbean connection put me all the way up. What goes up must go down, so Thugga picked me up. Aye, that’s what I call that street cred. Take your chance in the lobby, you gon’ meet those old dreads. Chef Creole, me and Khaled go back. So far back, boy ‘Shottas’ man, he had a 6 pack and I’m back on the tribe on a quest to go harder.” – lyrics
The audiovisual finds Wyclef training in a boxing/mixed-martial arts gym. Also, the song is motivation for those who are trying to accomplish their goals.
