Pras Does 'Something Crazy' To U2 Favorite With Bono's Blessing

Posted on Tuesday, August 23 @ 23:20:48 CEST by Macphisto

(MTV.com) -- There are many perks to being a member of a politically conscious group. Like, for instance, a direct line to Bono.

"I called Bono and said, 'I'm about to do something crazy and ask you something crazy,' " Fugees rapper Pras recalled recently. "He started laughing. I told him what I was doing. He heard it. He said, 'Look, if it's going to help you, you got my blessing.' So I respect him for that."

What Pras played for the U2 singer is his latest single, "Haven't Found," a remake of sorts of "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For."

"I'm a huge U2 fan," Pras said. "When you go take somebody's record, obviously you've got to be a fan of it. That's the only way it's going to come around the right way and not sound pretentious."

Pras has already shot the video, which can be viewed at www.haventfound.com. Fans can pause it and click on different areas of the screen for details on products used in the clip. "It's a new way to go interact with the videos," Pras said. "It's incredible."

"Haven't Found" is featured on Win, Lose or Draw, Pras' follow-up to 1998's Ghetto Superstar (see "Pras Taps Warren G, R. Kelly For New LP; Talks Fugees' Future"), which includes collaborations with Wyclef and Akon.

And speaking of Wyclef, Pras has reunited with his cousin and Lauryn Hill to work on the first Fugees album in almost 10 years (see "Fugees To Reunite In The Studio Once Hill Finishes Solo LP").

"We've been in the studio," Pras said of the group, which performed at the BET Awards (see "Destiny's Child Give Lap Dances, Fugees End Feud At BET Awards"). "We're trying to figure out how we're gonna do it, but we're working together."
