and are both reporting that Raekwon, fresh off his well-received, long awaited sequel to Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, has announced plans to record a collaborative album with Wu-Tang Clan brethren Ghostface Killah and Method Man, an uneven recording artist who always steps his game up when partnered with his Wu-Tang brethren or Redman.

Ghostface Killah, incidentally, is but a day away from releasing an album of R&B love songs entitled Ghostdini The Wizard of Poetry. Seriously. You can't make this shit up. Look for a review next week. We're big fans of all three artists (especially Ghostface Killah) so we are going to break with tradition and throw caution to the wind by announcing that we are extremely, extremely optimistic about this development.
