International recording artist and musician Wyclef Jean concedes to presidential disqualification; and will be leaving Haitian politics behind to return to the recording studio to work on a new album, according to his publicist.

In August, Jean along with more than a dozen other presidential hopefuls were left off the 2010 ballot for president of Haiti.

As much as Jean would love to contest his disqualification, Haiti’s council does not allow appeals.
