Fabolous and Nas have earned their respective reputations as two of New York's finest MCs, and with the Brooklyn rapper set to drop his sixth album Loso's Way 2 this spring and his Queensbridge counterpart already 10 solo LPs into his career, an official studio collaboration between these two is well overdue. No sweat though, looks like it's finally happening this year.

"Ready," the R&B-laced first single from Loso's Way 2, featured Chris Brown on the hook, and Fab's list of potential features also includes Future, Trey Songz, Ne-Yo, Young Jeezy, John Legend, Rick Ross and Chrisette Michele. Fab is describing his latest project as a continuation of the story he began in 2009 with Loso's Way.

"I'm not sure where everything is gonna go as yet, but I even just got a text recently from Nas," Fabolous told MTV News of the long-awaited collaboration. "Nas wants to do something. I've been waiting for that collaboration for a while."

When probed about what this meeting of the minds would possibly sound like, he said that they were in the early stages of making the track a reality. "I guess people would definitely have to get Loso's Way 2 and see, but I think it would be a great piece, because one thing about me and Nas is we're two people who are very passionate about what we say and what we represent."

"I think that we would come together and make a great collaborative effort," Fab added. "I don't know what kind of music it's gonna be yet, 'cause we just talked about getting on a joint together and we still gotta go in the studio and find the right joint for both of us. But I think overall people would be wanting to hear that joint."

We don't doubt it.
