Wu-Tang Clan's Raekwon recently detailed Twitter remarks he made last weekend referencing a possible Eminem collaboration and said a duet will likely happen soon.
Having spoken to Em at last weekend's Openair Festival in Switzerland, Rae opened up about their conversation.
"I respect [Em] as bein' one of the top elites in the game and I respect him as being a man, too...We schemin' and plottin'. The last statement me and him left off on I was tellin' him like, 'Yo, you might need to make the beat' and he gave me that look and we both walked away from each other like, 'Word, you right, we might have to do that like that.' So get ready man this is gonna happen soon." (XXL Mag)
Rae initially sparked speculation after tweeting about his run-in with Em.
"ok since yall dont think its me imma show yall, just met my dude @eminem today in switzerland, collabo gonna happehttp://twitpic.com/23wgru," he wrote Friday (July 9) night.
"we spoke for a few but he had a ill story he said when he was gettin on he came to staten for parkhill day in 97 and that blew my mind!" (Raekwon's Twitter)
Recently, Raekwon talked about putting together his recent Cocainism Volume 2 mixtape.
"For me it's like being on the street -- you hustling," he said about being active in the mixtape circuit. "You come out and you know it's a thousand people on the block doing their thing. You gotta get in where you fit in. I might come out with a couple of extra jams just to get my name out -- like, yo, give a couple of friends something for free, just to let 'em know. 'It's over here. Taste that. Taste that! Taste that and let me know how you feel. Get back at me.' I think that's the same rules that apply to the mixtape situation." (MTV)
Rae is currently scheduled to perform at the upcoming Rock the Bells festival next month.
