I’ll wait for you to stop laughing at the headline….

Done? OK. The Jonas Brothers said that they would like to work with a hip-hop artist like Common, Lupe Fiasco or Mos Def for one of the songs on their new record:

“There’s a song we wrote recently and we were thinking … it does sound different and kind of strange, and [we’d like to work with] a rapper who has some real meaningful lyrics,” Nick, the self-proclaimed “most hip-hop” Jonas, told MTV News. “[Someone who] has some real depth to what he’s saying — someone like a Common or a Lupe Fiasco or a Mos Def. Someone who takes more of a spoken-word approach. That’d be really cool.”

Kevin said that they definitely appreciate hip-hop, hinting that adding that type of vibe to the album is definitely a possibility. “We have a hip-hop bone in us somewhere,” Joe added.

Saying you’re the “most hip-hop” Jonas means about as much as saying you were the “least beaten” Jackson. Seriously though, if any of the artists he listed actually ends up working with these douchebags, I stop listening to said artist. The problem is that the hip-hop artists he listed have too much integrity to blatantly sell out like that. However, I will make the prediction that either Kanye West, Lil Wayne or 50 Cent offers to work with them after reading this news. Those guys’ll make a guest appearance on ANYONE’s song.
