Fugees Member Pras Michel Exposes Himself As An FBI Informant During Conspiracy Trial

Fugees member Pras Michel has reportedly admitted to snitching at a federal trial last week.

According to Rolling Stone, Michel, one-third of the New Jersey-bred hip-hop group, The Fugees, is currently on trial in federal court. The embattled rapper has pleaded not guilty to federal charges of conspiracy and falsifying records. The charges are related to Pras’ alleged involvement with Malaysian financier Jho Low, who is accused of finessing $4.5 billion from Malaysia’s 1MDB sovereign wealth fund.

In a rarity, Michel decided to testify in his own defense. He reportedly told the judge in the case he was doing so “after consulting with my attorneys and the universe.”

The case is against Michel and Low, but the financier is not in court due to his fugitive status.
