Sinead O’Connor + N.W.A. = The most random hip-hop collabo that never was?

I’m currently working on a huge hip-hop facts posts that all 3 of our readers should be on the look out fore reaaal soon, but while diggin through some news archives I found this:

Sinead O’Connor and George Bush may not quite be political allies, but they do seem to be on the same side of one hot issue: N.W.A. (Niggas With Attitude), the controversial L.A. rappers who made headlines with their song ”F — – Tha Police.” O’Connor, an ardent hip-hop fan, was scheduled to make a cameo appearance on the band’s forthcoming album, Niggaz 4 Life, but conflicting work schedules got in the way. Meanwhile, the band’s entrepreneurial leader, Eazy-E (above, a.k.a. Eric Wright, 23), jetted off to D.C. for-of all things-a ”Salute to the Commander in Chief” luncheon in Washington on March 18. The National Republican Senatorial Committee sponsored the fete, which featured a speech by President Bush and drew 1,400 Republicans. Wright wore a black leather suit to the event. Why was the rapper and self-proclaimed former drug dealer invited? Apparently his donations to various L.A. charities earned him an invitation to join the fund-raising Republican Senatorial Inner Circle. And Wright’s spokesman says the rapper ”really loves the President. He thinks he’s a great humanitarian and that he did a great job with Desert Storm.” Senators Phil Gramm (R-Texas) and Robert Dole (R-Kansas), who’d asked Wright to attend the banquet, had no comment.

For good or bad, I think my head would explode trying to figure out what a Sinead/NWA track would sound like, I guess the world will never know.

    I remember hearing about this back when that album was released. Actually, I saw Sinead on the Late Late Show tonight, remembered this little tidbit, and came across this site after a Google search. I actually recall hearing that she worked with them on some of the bass instrumentation on the album. That may not be true, it might be as you said, but either way, great artists all around. Phil Collins my ass.

    Seriously, don’t any of you watch movies? Check out Twins feat. Arnold Schwz. and Danny Davito. As Arnold is getting off his plain and walking the terminal they roll a mix of Sinead O’Connor’s Put your hands on me… E runs a sick rap Corus into the musical interlude… its worth renting if not Netflixing. I’ve looked passivly sense the movie came out to see if anyone has poseted the song to the net… nothing yet.
