How's this for a collaboration? Famed gangsta rapper 50 Cent wants to
with the classically-trained singer and reality TV phenom Susan Boyle. In
an interview with the Daily Mirror gossip site, 50 said, "Susan Boyle
is hot right now... I got to get her on a track, for real."
He said he's envisioning a bass-heavy dance track featuring a smooth
sample of Boyle's powerful pipes. The single would be "a hit" and "get
everyone dancing," the rapper says. He also wouldn't mind taking her out on the town.
"She's cool. I'd love to take her clubbing, show her around my world. She'd have a great time."
While 50 seems fairly confident, no word yet from Boyle about whether she'd accept. As she told The Guardian
her dream has always been to become a professional singer like Elaine
Paige who, unlike 50 Cent, pursued musical theater and was not shot 9 times.
