After Nas expressed his regret for not being apart of Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2, Raekwon tells MTV that there’s no love lost and that the Shaolin door is always open.
Says Nas: It’s been no discussions,” Nas said about appearing on Rae’s new project. “You know how the music game is. Everybody is out there grindin’, making music. But his last album was classic. I definitely wish I was on that piece. So yeah, something in the future is definitely likely. That’ll be good.”
Says Raekwon: It wasn’t even about reinventing ‘Verbal Intercourse’. It was about, he was there for the first album. When I think about us making this album, a lot of people, a lot of my fans knew he was down with me on the first [Cuban Linx] album. I wanted to really make it happen for the sake of the fans as well as the relationship. Me and him, we always been cool. We always looked at our styles as being real similar. So I felt it was a great move. I guess, at the time, he couldn’t be available. I understand. I know how it gets sometime. But at the end of the day, it’s always good to know that we still the same cats from 10 years ago. That’s how I am. I don’t change the face of who I am because of no certain situations in the game, because our careers go where they go. If you was down with me from the door, I’m still the same old G. I’m sure he feels the same way. Like I said, ain’t no love lost. If we do it again, we gonna make it tight and do what we supposed to do.”
