So the figure first reported yesterday by Whitney Bryen of the Colorado Daily is completely accurate. For the free 4/20 alternative concert this afternoon at the Coors Event Center on the University of Colorado campus in Boulder, Wyclef Jean was paid a flat fee of $80,000. It's also true that the contract contains wording prohibiting Jean from espousing the virtues of marijuana -- well, not in those words, exactly.
