DJ Khaled teases JAY-Z and Nas project


DJ KHALED is always the first to let fans know about his secret projects - and it seems he pay have let the cat out of the bag once more with news of a possible mega collab between two hip-hop icons.

The Wild Thoughts hitmaker has taken to Instagram to share a photo of himself between JAY-Z and Nas, who are in the middle of a conversation, and in the accompanying caption, Khaled suggests the three of them are working on something special.

"A hip hop dream is now our reality," he wrote next to the black-and-white snap. "The language being spoken in this picture should be written in scriptures. This picture should be framed and put up in the museums across the world for future generations to appreciate. I'll tell you while (sic) we're smiling at a later date. Trust me you're gonna love it! BLESS UP!"

The cryptic caption has sparked speculation a new song is in the works, 13 years after JAY-Z and Nas officially quashed their rap beef.

The two New York natives became engaged in a memorable rap beef 2001 to 2005, trading jabs in their music, before settling their differences and working together in 2006, when Nas signed to Def Jam Recordings while JAY-Z served as the label's president.

They went on to hit the recording studio together on a handful of occasions, most recently in 2013, when they worked on BBC from JAY-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail album.

Khaled has become known for teasing big collaborations via social media. He recently let slip that Jennifer Lopez had secured a song with rap newcomer Cardi B, which J.Lo has since confirmed.
