Nas Talks First Raekwon Encounter

    In an interview with LRG, conducted in Oslo, Norway, Nas spoke on his first meeting with Raekwon da Chef of the Wu-Tang Clan at Hot 97’s inaugural Summer Jam. “Rae walked in the door backstage, and popped open a bottle of champagne, like a movie. I said to myself, ‘There’s no other way I was supposed to meet Rae.'” Judging by the numerous bottles surrounding the table as well as the presence of Raekwon himself sitting to the side slurring grandiosely, not much has changed. You’ll want to turn the volume up on this one, because both Nas and Rae are mumbling with a vengeance. Other important things in this video: Raekwon’s glass of champagne, Nas rocking sunglasses indoors and rocking a chain that would make Slick Rick envious. Nas’ tenth solo album, Life Is Good, should be dropping some time in the near future, featuring rumored collaborations with The Rza, DJ Premier, Dr. Dre, and Frank Ocean and Hodgy Beats from Odd Future. Get hype.
