About Pras Michel

From Hip-Hop superstardom to tech entrepreneurship, Pras Michel is an innovator who pushes boundaries and shatters preconceived notions.

The son of Haitian immigrants, Pras formed The Fugees’ with high school classmates Lauryn Hill and Wyclef Jean. After the success of their seminal work, The Score, Pras went on to forge a successful solo career with the international hit single “Ghetto Supastar,” featuring Mya and the late Old Dirty Bastard.

In 2006, Pras turned his attention to documentary filmmaking with Skid Row, Los Angeles, which shed light on homelessness. In 2016, Pras unveiled a documentary entitled Sweet Micky For President, which chronicled Haitian musician Michel Martelly’s campaign to become President of Haiti and Pras’ role in reshaping Martelly into a politician looking to fight corruption.

During the 2018 Super Bowl, Pras Michel teased his latest endeavor, Blacture.

The multifaceted platform will usher in a new era, illuminating Black brilliance globally through education and empowerment. One of Blacture’s most exciting elements will be the Blacture M1, a blockchain-based smartphone that gives consumers incentives for use. The Blacture M1 will be the first blockchain-based phone to hit the US market.

Along with Pras is Tech This Out senior on air personality Osei who will moderate the discussion with Pras.
