“It’s definitely gonna happen. When you got these kinda talents merging together to do something exciting, I think it’s something that’s gonna make the fans check it out. I’m big fans of both of these guys. I think, at the end of the day, shorty is a sensation. And [for him] to acknowledge me it makes me feel good that the young generation is checkin’ me out like that. And at the same time it gives me a position to play a big brother in the game. He wants my assistance or whatever, he can get it. I respect him, I like his style.”
-Rapper Raekwon, discussing the proposed collaboration between Kanye West, Justin Bieber and himself that became the talk of the Internet earlier this week. After West and Bieber started exchanging tweets (specifically about West’s love for the Bieber track “Runaway Love”), the two resolved on Twitter to team up on a track and bring in Wu-Tang Clan member and Only Built 4 Cuban Linx legend Raekwon to complete the trifecta.
In a conversation with XXL magazine, Rae said he has already discussed the project with West. “Yeezy called me and we gon’ make it pop,” he said. “At the end of the day we’re all doing our thing in the game and for them to even just have a conversation and just put my name in it, it feels good. It feels good to respect what I do and I respect what they do. And we gon’ make a hit. Justin got his own fanbase and me and Yeezy got our own fanbase and we gon’ make it happen. We gon’ make a good record.”
