The God and Godson To Collaborate

From MTV News:

"I’mma ask a question," Rakim said to Nas and everyone in the room. "Me and Nas, we been talking about this for a long time. Our people around us been talking about it and the whole world [has been talking about it], but it’s about time, man.

"We gotta do a joint together, man. We gotta do a joint."

"We got to," Nas answered with a smile.

"I’m working on my sh– now, I know you working on yours, I got some things in my mind," Rakim continued. "If it’s both [albums we collaborate on], that’s even better. Let’s think about that in the next few weeks."

"Yeah dawg, that’s done," Nas responded before the MCs began exchanging numbers. "It’s done. I’m glad you brought that up."

All I know is Premo better be on the boards for this one.

  2. MaddenMaster Says:

    WOW, Interesting little fact!!! Its about time everybody knows that Rakim is the father of Nas style…. SHIT WHY IT TAKE SO LONG?

  3. L.P.CROOKS Says:

    Damn it I misread the caption…I mean Yaay

  4. tyronebiggums71 Says:

  5. she Says:

    ^ why yall like playing that “first” thing reminds me of something i use to do in 1st grade.

    and its about time,can’t wait for this one es.

  6. co sign Says:

    sounds interesting

  7. KonishiwaBitches Says:

    waiting to see how it turns out

  8. reggaetonslasher Says:

    NAS AND RAKIM COLLABO, IS LIKE ABOUT TIME

  9. the green eyed bandit Says:

    I hear you on the premo tip but I am not so sure it HAS to be him. Premo would have to bring something nasty, not some of his phone-it-in stuff he has done from time to time.

    q-tip on the remix

  10. Engineer Says:

    Rakim is one of, if not, the greatest MC, however, he is a lazy MC or at least he’s become one. He’s been through quite a few labels and he has a habit of not showing up to sessions and takes forever to put a joint together. That just proves that extremely talented people tend to sleep on there own ability…I would hate to see him shit this oportunity away. Collaborating with NAS and this new deal with JAY is a good look for Rakim….I hop he see’s the magnitude of this opportunity…..

  11. Engineer Says:

    Don’t get me wrong, much love and respect for Rakim…I just been around to see the shit I wrote in my last comment…..

    I AGREE^^^^ AND DON’T FORGET ABOUT HIM WANTING/TRYING TO BE 2PAC AS WELL. As for this collabo…….no comment!

  13. E From BK Says:

    Who was WANTING/TRYING TO BE 2PAC? Rakim or Nas?

  14. p1 Says:

    fuckin a, its about time. cosign on the premo, too.

  15. E From BK Says:

    How old are you Luis?

  16. BBN2 Says:

    Nas & Rakim=fire Nas tryin to sound like Pac(not)white boy luis stop jumpin on dicks the first chance you get. In the words of T.I. That is mighty ho-ish

  17. E From BK Says:

    I think this will be a great collabo. I’m also waiting for Nas to do Biography II-KRS One

  18. Luis Says:

    e from bk I was referring to Nas, didn’t you hear that classic song that NEVER made it to see the light of day “WHEN THUGZ CRY”? Well, you can hear what Pac has to say about your boy Nas on the song “Against All Odds” on the Makaveli LP!
    Hey BBN2 go fuck yourself you moron!!!!

  19. DaReturn Says:

    Its gonna be Crazy thats all. point. blank. period

  20. Luis Says:

    ^ yeah well let’s see if it really does happen!!!

  21. BBN2 Says:

    Nah I rather fuck ya mom’s nigga she know where to meet at lol

  22. joe 88 Says:

    Gotta be done over a premo beat. anything else would be un civilized

  23. G Off Says:

    I’m only excited about this if it comes out natural sounding and hot… If it sounds cut and paste like his verse on The Watcher 2, I’m not interested. Some collabos sound better on paper than on disc.

  24. E From BK Says:

    @Luis

    Either you are heavily sedated or just plain dillusional. What you said is just ridiculous.

  25. eskay Says:

    Luis, too bad Nas is 5 times better than Pac.

    *stands back to observe the inevitable Pac vs. Nas argument I just provoked*

    *laughs all the way to the comments bank*

  26. joe 88 Says:

    @eskay

    no comment.

  27. Luis Says:

    ^ yeah ok e from bk and BBN eat a fat dick you prick!!!!!

  28. BBN2 Says:

    Eat a dick you prick! Look all the white comin outcha ass! Rather that then me beat it off u hahahahahahaha

  29. E From BK Says:

    @Luis

    I’ll do that. Where do you live?

  30. E From BK Says:

    If you talk it you should be able to walk it. Man the fuck up. Where do you live and we can meet in the middle. *Real fuckin’ talk”

  31. nu Says:

    I think it would be dope for them to come out on an album with a bunch of new producers that the game ain’t heard. I think getting that gritty sound of some hungry cats on the boards with some filthy drums would be a classic. As much as I love the legends, I think a mix of the ole shit with the new production will be nasty.

    ^^^^^ co-sign

    I mean, remember when Jay did basically a whole album with Just Blaze and Kanye West, two producers that were almost unheard of before. Sure, I know they both had done shit but they weren’t famous. Now they two of the biggest in the game right now. Look at Scott Storch who’s been producing forever for Dre but only recently got his own shine.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m a 10 times bigger Premo fan than everyone I know, it’s just that he’s way past his prime. He’s done some decent tracks, sure, but nothing he’s done this millennium can really match any of his classics. I don’t see how he could bring the heat for a new Nas album, or even a Nas/Ra collabo. I would love for him to prove me wrong though.

  33. Raz LDN Says:

    yeah foreal, preemo needs to be on board. hopefully this will give hip-hop the kiss of life

  34. D. Billz Says:

    I don’t think the problem is with Preemo, it’s with hip hop. Preemo is very selective about who he works with. Even the joint he did with that group from Brooklyn (I forgot their name) was ill. I didn’t expect it to be played on BET as much as it did and even got love on MTV for a little while. Think about it, who in the industry in the last five years has really released a dominant street/lyrical album? I think he just needs someone to bring the best out of him. And Nas and Rakim can definitely make that happen. Their rap styles are a perfect fit over the nostalgic scratches and chops that Preemo is known for.

  35. D. Billz Says:

    The single from that Brooklyn group was called “And It’s All Real”… this shit is mind boggling. Somebody help me out! *in John Witherspoon voice* Oh lawdy lawdy, help me… help me pleeease… help me!

  36. Darth Cipher Says:

    man i got a feeling rakim isnt gunna come that hard on this shit, cause rakim did a track with talib for the getting up shit and his verse honestly seemed weak to me, as usual talib killed it… so if rakim dont come hard nas is gunna leave him in the dust man and its not gunna look good for him at all… but im looking forward to this cause its about fucking time… honestly a premo beat would be best, but hey im sure whatever true hiphop producer they get will do justice for them, cause its all about the lyrics, fuck the beat(example: haha i tihnk ima leave this opportunity alone)

    pitch black

  38. TYRONEBIGGUMS Says:

    and for the rest of what you said thats why i said it has to be a preme beat i dont even think id bother if it wasnt * turns nose up in the air like a hip-hop snob i expect perfection from ideas like this *

  39. reas0n555 Says:

    Nas reall sounded like Rakim @ live at the bbq and you can tell that’s his roots on the illmatic album(the greatest hiphop album of all time)…2 lyrical monsters to bring it back to this is how it should be done…can’t wait…finally some real hiphop…oh and by the way..Nas is 50s daddy look how many times he was on 50s first album…”who I rep with qb nigga”…lol…all up on Brave hearts dick…lol..anyways sounds like its gonna be fire

  40. MadeInMilwaukee Says:

    Just Blaze would do it some justice as well. But honestly right now I don’t know if It will be as good as it could have been.

  41. Darth Cipher Says:

    dj green lantern should make the beat…

  42. KingML Says:

    lets get large professor or marley marl on the beat

    large professor would be dope

    hell anyone but just blaze, kanye, heatmakerz, scott storch or eminem and i will be quite pleased with the production..

    maybe even da beatminerz or hi-tek would be nice to hear those two flow over. they’ll murder any beat given.

  43. Ricky D Says:

    They need someone with a hotter hand to do the beat, no disrespect to Primo… I’m just thinking if they wait to get Primo Rakim and Nas together it’ll be another dream collab that never actually happens. They should get someone who’s always working, like Just Blaze, and maybe someone who’s just bubbling under, like Don Cannon, Bink, even 9th wonder.

  44. Lili Says:

    As long as there arent any shouts to dipset, I’m good…

  45. The Landlord Says:

    …DIPSET ALLDAY MA^^^

  46. brotha darknesses Says:

    Production wise i co-sign premo , but im also feeling 9th wonder
    or even shit’. the roots with a collabo from black thought , rza should come
    on deck too large pro and just blaze.

  47. Engineer Says:

    Ignorant idiots proving what’s wrong with Hip hop on a forum about hip hop..WOW, no one even sees anybody’s face and there’s beef here…..Yoi know who you are…..idiots!!!
