Gather round children. Let me tell you a story...

A Thread.

When I was 19 I wrote a letter to The Fugees, debating Wyclef on the meaning of one of his lyrics (yes, I know: #HipHopNerdAlert).

I was just a kid, no connections, and sent it to the address on the back of the album.
Miracle #1: the letter (addressed to "The Fugees c/o Columbia Records" and send to the main Columbia address!) somehow reached him.

Miracle #2: Wyclef actually responded. He CALLED ME to discuss.

Proof? Last week I unearthed this voicemail from an old cassette!
It was an unbelievable act of generosity from a superstar. The conversation lasted nearly an hour. I was floored, even more by what came next: a lyric on The Score dedicated to the Kid.

I was just a fan, and the fact that Wyclef went so far to bless me will never be forgotten.
