Kanye West Tweets Status Of Justin Bieber Remix
‘Raekwon’s verse is crazy,’ he teases about the track.
It didn’t take long for the Kanye West-Justin Bieber collaboration to come to fruition. Just days after tweeting about a possible joint project, West let fans know that he’s nearly finished remixing Bieber’s “Runaway Love.”
Prior to jumping on the track, Wu-Tang rapper Raekwon confirmed that he was working toward getting the West-Bieber project off the ground. “It’s definitely gonna happen,” he told XXL magazine. “When you got these kinda talents merging together to do something exciting, I think it’s something that’s gonna make the fans check it out. I’m big fans of both of these guys. I think, at the end of the day, shorty is a sensation. And [for him] to acknowledge me it makes me feel good that the young generation is checkin’ me out like that. And at the same time it gives me a position to play a big brother in the game. He wants my assistance or whatever, he can get it. I respect him, I like his style.”
Its’ been quite a week for Bieber, who re-tweeted Raekwon’s XXL confirmation. In addition to having West and Raekwon work their magic on his song, it was just announced that the VMA-nominated singer will also perform at the big show. He tweeted his excitement, saying, “Performing at this years VMA’s!!! Last year i went and no one knew who i was and this year gonna PERFORM!!! Wild!! DREAM BIG!”
