Jay-Z and Nas Collaborate on a New York Anthem?

Rumor has it that the first Jay-Z/Nas collaboration will be a remix of L.E.S rapper Tru-Life's 2005 anthem The New New York. I don't know if there's any truth to that or what, but if so, that kid just hit the collaboration jackpot. Just imagine being a newly signed rapper who's never dropped a solo album, and the two biggest names in rap decide to jump on one of your joints for a remix.

Tru-Life himself is a decent rapper, not spectacular, but he came correct on the mixtape he had out last year with Green Lantern and his loyalty to his hometown is something some of our established artists could use a lesson in. That doesn't matter though, because a song like this is still going to generate all types of hate from those who would rather see New York fall off the face of the earth than "take back the top spot", whatever that's supposed to mean. Last time I checked the top selling rapper in the game hailed from Queens, NY.

Personally, I don't really care for that particular multi platinum rapper, but sometimes you have to bring up stuff like that when you're dealing with people who think album sales actually have something to do with quality hip hop. Do yourself a favor and don't feed into that "New York fell off" propaganda. There's good music coming out of this city, the catch is you have to know good music when you hear it.
