Nas and Raekwon are two of the longest-tenured hip hop veterans producing hot music in this day and age. They've done quite a few songs together over the course of their extensive careers, and a possible joint album between the two may not be out of the question. Rae hinted at as much in a recent interview.
"I mean, whatever Nas wants, that's my n*gga. As far as an album? We talked about that—Me and Nas sat down like real n*ggas like, 'Yo, wassup! We need to do that!' If everybody want that and me and him be able to sit in a room and business is correct and we both respecting what it is, I'm down."
He continued on to say "So whatever happens in the future, hey, you know what I mean. He know how I get down. My clips is loaded. It'll be a rhyming album, I know that, but whatever. That's a good friend of mine so, whatever."
The Chef also touched on how close they've become as friends and not just as artists.
"I support anything he does. He's a revolutionary such as myself and I look up to him and he looks up to me. He tells me this like, 'Yo son, you like one of my only true friends.' So it feels good to cover that department with a brother. Like a lot of relationships I have with artists, it ain't just music. It's brotherhood, it's that respect we carry when we see each other and it's always like that."
Finally, he briefly hinted at what goes on when he's working on his own material.
"I'm very unpredictable but at the end of the day I'm working. Sometimes things change in my life. It's like, 'Hold up that ain't feel good. That felt good.' And that's how I look at anything I do.
I've been in the business for almost 20 years. I understand what it means to be a legend in a great way and still be a brand that's relevant. All I'm trying to do is broaden that, you know what I mean?"
