After weekend speculation of a Kanye West, Justin Bieber and Raekwon collaboration being in the works, the Wu-Tang Clan lyrical monster has confirmed a track is stirring.
According to “The Chef,” Yeezy has already phoned in the request and put things in motion.
“It’s definitely gonna happen,” Rae said in an interview. “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…Yeezy called me and we gon’ make it pop. 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 fan base and me and Yeezy got our own fan base and we gon’ make it happen. We gon’ make a good record.” (XXL Mag)
Writing via Twitter last weekend, Yeezy brought the idea up with Bieber via a handful of tweets.
“So bugged out me and @JustinBieber are tweeting at the same time… Social networking is pretty awesome,” Ye wrote Sunday (August 15).
“An I’m honored that you like my Music @JustinBieber!!! You gotta hear the album. Maybe we can do something together. Me, You and Raekwon.”
“Yo Ghost and Rae were on one of my favorite Jodeci remixes of all time.. maybe me and Rae should hop on Runaway Love! FLEX would drop bombs!” (Kanye West’s Twitter)
Bieber responded to Ye’s idea and called the possible collaboration “epic.”
“@kanyewest me, u, and the chef 2gether on a song = EPIC. haha. might sound crazy 2 u but even having this convo is living the dream. thanks.” (Justin Bieber’s Twitter)
The Wu’s “Chef” also took note of the conversation and said he was down to hit the studio.
“RT @kanyewest: An I’m honored that you like my Music @JustinBieber!!! You gotta hear the album. Maybe we can do something together. Me, You and Raekwon! Let’s do it ye I’m wit it!.” (Raekwon’s Twitter)
