Raekwon Says Collab Album With Notorious B.I.G. Could Have Happened

Raekwon recalls his beef with the Notorious B.I.G. and says that the two could've linked up for an LP at some point.

While Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G.'s beef may go down as the most widely recognized feuds in Hip Hop, one of Biggie's most notorious tiffs transpired between him and members of the Wu-Tang Clan. Now, in a recent interview with MTV, B.I.G.'s one-time adversary Raekwon speaks on his short-lived feud with the Brooklyn legend. 

Back in 1995, Rae and his partner-in-rhyme Ghostface Killah lambasted Biggie on a skit from Only Built 4 Linx... titled "Shark Niggas (Biters)" over the similarities between the album covers of B.I.G.'s debut Ready To Die and Nas's Illmatic. Now, the Chef looks back on his past debacle, saying that he never really viewed it as a serious beef and that had Biggie not passed away, a joint album between the two of them could have happened.

“First and foremost when we all came up together it was almost like the best time in Hip Hop. And at that time we were young, we were childhood stars with a vision, at that time we all was doin’ it,” he explained. “Like I tell the world to this day, beef is something when it’s on and poppin’; competition is competition. At the end of the day, I feel like the same way he loved our music, we loved his music - don’t forget, Meth worked with him on joints...we probably would’ve did an album. That’s how I feel, because like I said we were all runnin’ neck and neck.”

The full interview can be seen below.

    the ready to die and illmatic covers looking similar is just coincedence. i'm a Chef fan, but that was a dumb comparison, always was. and i bet Biggie was not that forgiving, they would've never done a collabo.

    Rae and BIG are both true legends and real hip-hop artists. Both will go down in hip-hop folk lore. I am lucky to see Raekwon perform last summer in Brooklyn in Park Slope park. For free. Got to love NYC!! Never saw BIG though, damn shame. Anyone even mentioning YMCMB and LiL Wayne in the same sentence as these goes should be ashamed of themselves.


    17 letters YMCMB OVOXO MMG DICK Representing those of us who like to be gay.

    Rae and B.I.G.? damn that would have been one of the most unlikely collaboration. Would've been insane though.
