Raekwon Recalls Ghostface Killah Dating Aaliyah

By Kiani Shabazz

Raekwon has confirmed that fellow Wu-Tang member and his right-hand man, Ghostface Killah, used to date R&B songstress Aaliyah. The legendary recently sat down for an interview with VladTV, where he was asked to elaborate on how the two got together. 

“I remember we had a mansion in L.A., and you know, I used to talk to Ghost a lot about like, ‘Word you bagged that?… Bring her to the lab, you know, bring some friends over whatever the case may be,” Raekwon explained. “And one day, I guess I took a nap that day, and I was walking through the crib, next thing you know I see him and Aaliyah asleep in a chair.”

“I wake him up, I’m like, ‘Yo, wassup? What’s going on?’ He was like, ‘Nah I’m just catching some rest you know.’ I was just laughing. I’m like, ‘You a wild cat,” he continued. 

Raekwon said he used to talk with Ghostface Killah a lot about the relationship but knew it was nothing serious.

“He respected Aaliyah,” he said. “He really liked her, and it could have been just some friendship thing, but you know, like I said, we liked Aaliyah’s music, we liked what she was doing, and yeah, I think they had a little crush thing going on. A little baby crush going on.”

Raekwon has been dropping absolute gems lately, as he releases his first memoir,  From Staircase To Stage, in November. The book lightly touches on Ghost and Aaliyah’s relationship.
