Prince Chant: "Osama Bin Laden Gettin Ready to Bomb"?

I figure that Prince just kept up with the Sign of The Times or somewhat see the Future from the news and figured Osama was gettin ready Bomb. That is terrorist did hit the World Trade Center in the basement with a Car Bomb before the 9/11... So what do you think prompted to sing that chant back in What year and What country? I have the recording... Whatever a little freaky he was singing that before 9/11!

You can hear the music and chant here:

Be warn the "narrator" is Way Off of the things he say after the Chant...

It's not a little freaky that he was singing it before 9/11 and anyone who didn't have their head in the sand knew who Osama bin Laden was before 9/11. He was only blowing shit up for 10 years prior. Where were you?

Anyone who watched "60 Minutes" knew Bin Laden was looking to attack the WTC again in 2001 before 9/11.

Maybe a cave....unlike Osama!!

Fuck the funk - it's time to ditch the worn-out Vegas horns fills, pick up the geee-tar and finally ROCK THE MUTHA-FUCKER!! He hinted at this on Chaos, now it's time to step up and fully DELIVER!!

23-12-1998, Tivoli @ Utrecht (The Netherlands).

Look on youtube for 'Prince voorspelde' and see a fragment of it.

Around that time Osama was already in the news because of the embassy bombings in August. http://en.wikipedia.org/w...y_bombings

Only the guessing '2001' is a strange but correct guess from The Artist, furthermore it is not that strange as it may seem now Prince rapping about it.

Have a look at 'The W2A: Euro Tour Song Survey' http://prince.org/msg/12/362417

I guess with recent headlines we should have expected this thread (first of many no doubt). Prince is a prophet, the second coming and reincarnation of Akhenaton who foresaw 9/11, did fuck all about it except have a little sing song in Europe about it early one morning - it's all part of God's plan, praise Jehovah!

Yes, people tend to forget that Bin Laden was well known about even back in 1998. When i first saw the 9/11 attacks I thought it would be down to him as he was still probably the world's most wanted man back then. Remember they attacked the WTC back in 1993 too.

The only creepy bit is the way he said 2001 and the sounds of the sirens in the background...there may be something to it after all.

You call yourself Prince fans!!?? LOL

The "2001" bit is nothing to do with a prediction, when he performed the Spoke Zarathustra/Go-Go's medley he would shout 2001 and the music from 2001: A Space Oddyssey would begin.

See, nothing to do with him predicting the attacks

I'm well aware that Osama was blowing up stuff before that. My point is what other artist was Singing about like brother P did?

This. Needs adding to the FAQ clearly.

Osama Bin Laden had already been active at this stage and Prince was performing long jams around the 2001 theme tune at every show on that lengthy tour.

Your logic is not very solid....the real question is...how come he connected 2001: A space Oddyssey to this chant...

Furthermore...how logic is it to have a chant at all about it...its true...Osama was known..but not very well known....

It's all strangely coincidental..yet meaningfull...it's called synchronicity....

Well as long as people don't start saying he planned it or knew it would happen, I don't want him going to Guantanamo!

People have been sent there for less LOL

He connected 2001 to this chant because... he was performing the "2001 medley" while shouting about Osama. It's a coincidence that the two were next to each other.

Yes, it's much more logical to assume Prince has some magical ability to predict future events.

Prince was once asked if he was psychic. His answer was "No, i just practice a lot!" (meaning instruments)

coincidence and timing is the logical answer.

By the way.. Binny( as I call him) came on the scene as a serious problem in the late 80's. We were chasing him long before media started reporting. Right before Persian Gulf.
Prince and 9/11 bomb chants.. Simple: it was what was going on at the time.

prince is an educated entertainer. he is aware of world events.. back in 2001 the likes of britney spears and nsync were the big acts of the day.. do you see them inging that stuff? no because they were manufactured, prince is for real, thats all!

Yeah, I feel you. Rememberhe would say, "Vegas!!" back in the 80s and then all of a sudden he did a residency there in 2006? It's like he knew.

Prince has magical powers. He looks into his "Crystall Ball" and can see the future.

He's kinda like Santa Claus.

He sees you when you're freaky.

He knows when your house quakes.

He knows when you're a brat or cool

so be cool, for goodness sake!

If you take that clip from the performance out of context without explanation of the whole 2001 space odyssey riff, it does sound kinda freaky, like he annouced the year..

Unless you're a news junkie, the majority of people in America would not have paid much atttention to Osama Bin Laden in 1998. Yes, one of our ships was bombed, but it was bombed off shore in another country. We don't really care unless it happens here.

2001..... Hit Me!

I turned that into the FBI the day after 9/11. I guess nothing ever came from it.

He said it because it fit into the song. Nothing more...Nothing less.
