Raekwon Says Jay Z Wanted Him And Ghostface Killah On “Magna Carta Holy Grail”
Raekwon explains how he almost ended up on “Heaven” from Jay Z’s “Magna Carta Holy Grail.”
Over the course of their careers, Ghostface Killah and Raekwon have appeared on enough classic tracks together to have a joint greatest hits album. Today we learn that a track on Jay Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail could’ve almost made that list. While being interviewed by AllHipHop, Rae The Chef speaks on a photo of him and Hova in the studio that surfaced two years ago.
Apparently, Jay had a vision of putting Rae and Ghost on his MCHG track “Heaven,” which went on to feature Justin Timberlake. Unfortunately, he didn’t end up getting a verse from Ghost, so the idea was ultimately scrapped.
