Whatever Happened to That Jay Z & Raekwon Collaboration? Raekwon Speaks (Video)

Back in May of 2013, a photo of Jay Z and Raekwon in the studio leaked and set the Internet ablaze. The instagram photo was released prior to the announcement of Jay Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail album, leaving Heads to speculate wildly about what Hov and The Chef might be cooking up. When the album was released, there was no Raekwon appearance and the record became another in a long list of Hip-Hop mysteries.

AllHipHop caught up with Raekwon recently and asked him about the lost one. Raekwon spoke in detail about the collaboration, revealing that he did indeed lay a verse for a song called “Heaven,” but Jay Z’s vision had been of doing a record with both Rae and Ghostface Killah. Due to scheduling conflicts, Ghost was unable to complete his verse and Jay opted to hold the record back. Perhaps this leaves the door open for the song to surface if it’s ever completed? Check out the video.
