Are you ready for this, world? Wu-Tang rapper Raekwon announced that a Justin Bieber/Kanye West collaboration is “definitely gonna happen.” And you can credit Twitter for bringing these two superstars together.
It all began with a simple KanyeTweet from this past weekend. “Listening to @JustinBieber ‘Run Away love’ … I love Sunday mornings in the crib,” tweeted Kanye, unaware of the spiral of awesomeness his status update would be generate.
Justin, as big a Kanye fan as he is an Eminem fan, quickly wrote back, “it’s not a so what moment for me. I’m 16 and a fan. I’m kinda hyped u are listening to my stuff. Thank u. Nice sunday morning.”
Justin shot back again with, “what is crazy is that I play Heartless every night in my set acoustic. this convo is crazy for me. Excited 4 ur new album.”
Kanye, ever the gent, tweeted back to Justin, “I’m honored that you like my Music @JustinBieber!!! You gotta hear the album. Maybe we can do something together. Me, You and Raekwon.”
Kanye quickly morphed into a straight-up Belieber—he couldn’t stop tweeting about Justin’s song “Runaway Love.” Quoth Kanye: “Yo this Runaway Love is the truth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! on my 17th listen 2day!!! Every time I get to that song I got go in 4 times!!”
And then:”Will your Itunes break if you play a song to many times????????!!!!!!!!!!! Runaway Loooooooooooooove!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Justin tweeted back to Kanye about a possible collab, saying “me, u, and the chef 2gether on a song = EPIC. haha. might sound crazy 2 u but even having this convo is living the dream. thanks.”
So this may seem all like fun-and-games, but Kanye doesn’t mess around when he gets inspired. “Yeezy called me and we gon’ make it pop,” Raekwon told XXL magazine. “Justin got his own fanbase and me and Yeezy got our own fanbase and we gon’ make it happen. We gon’ make a good record.”
So should Justin sing the hook on a Kanye song? Or should ‘Ye drop a verse on Bieber’s next hit? Or maybe they should both record a modern-day cover of Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson’s duet “The Girl Is Mine”, sure to be our ringtone until the end of time?
What kind of track do you want Bieber and West to record? Or should they just collaborate on a colorful designer shoe line? Tell us!
