After a Twitter conversation in recent days between Justin Bieber and Kanye West mullling working together with Raekwon, the Wu Tang Clan member has just confirmed to XXL magazine that a Bieber/West/Raekwon collaboration is definitely a go.
"It's definitely gonna happen," Raekwon told XXL. "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 these guys."
A hip-hop veteran who first hit the charts before Bieber was born, Raekwon says he's flattered that the teen pop star even recognized him and his talents. "I think, at the end of the day, shorty [Justin Bieber] is a sensation. And [for him] to acknowledge me it makes me feel good that the young generation is checking me out like that," he said. "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."
About how he got roped into the group effort, Raekwon said it all started with a phone call from 'Ye. "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…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."
