Chris Rock, Akon Watched Kanye West Record Justin Bieber Remix

August 20, 2010
Chris Rock, Akon Watched Kanye West Record Justin Bieber RemixRaekwon has said that Kanye West was “excited” to remix a song by Justin Bieber.

The rapper worked on a version of the teen star's hit 'Runaway Love' at New York's Electric Lady Studios this week after discussing the collaboration on Twitter.

As well a verse from Raekwon, the remix, which has yet to be given a release date, also features West.

In an interview with MTV News, Raekwon said the pair had fun making the remix – and revealed that they were watched in the studio by a star-studded list of celebrities.

"He was definitely excited,” Raekwon said of West in the studio. “The energy in the room was already speaking for itself. It was time to get up and have fun on the track together.

“We was drinking, laughing, being normal cats.”

He added: "You had Akon in the building. Mos Def was just chillin'. Mos is a good friend of 'Ye's. You had Charlie Wilson, the legendary cat from the Gap Band. Chris Rock walked in.”

West referred to Rock's presence on Twitter: “Yo Chris Rock write a Tweet for me.”

The rapper has also been working with Raekwon on his forthcoming studio album, which is due to arrive in November.
