Wyclef Jean

Roaming NYC With

ASSAULT RIFLE GUITAR

EXCLUSIVE

043013_wyclef_jean_launch
Wyclef Jean says he wants to convert weapons into music ... so he made himself a guitar shaped like an AK-47 ASSAULT RIFLE ... and whipped it out on the streets of NYC.

Interesting concept ... but brandishing something that looks like a FIREARM in the middle of the street???

Pretty ballsy move ... especially considering law enforcement in the city is on high alert ever since officials discovered those terrorist brothers were targeting New York. 

Check out the video -- 'Clef not only explains the idea behind the musical weaponry ... but actually lets our guy PLAY the assault guitar, while the founding Fugee sings along.

Miraculously, no one was injured in the making of this footage.

Idiot. It's only a matter of time before some trigger-happy cops accidentally blast his ass off. Why risk roaming around with something like that when you know damn well there are a lot of cops out there who won't think twice of pulling their triggers on you?

It's a cool novelty item if it were used as an art piece in the home.


I don't know this guy, but I'm thinking he may be fibbing about his good intentions. If anything, it will have the opposite effect if he is even allowed to play it in public. He would probably be arrested if he did it here.

Peter Tosh did that in the 80's after he left BOB MARLEY. His guitar was a AK/47 cause he said every note was a shot to the government.

He needs crazy guitars to take the focus away from the fact that he can't play them.

Mon ami Wyclef Jean has a good idea, to convert weapons into music. Field artillery was my choice of musical instrument. Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture is the reason why I couldn't join high school band. They wouldn't let me play the instrument that my heart was dearly set on: field artillery.
