Alicia Keys Gets Nas And Rakim Together For First Time

Sexy singer ALICIA KEYS is poised to make history with her upcoming album - by securing rappers NAS and RAKIM on the same record for the first time ever.

The GRAMMY-winning FALLIN' beauty is currently at work on her highly anticipated second album and notes the hip-hop giants' contribution makes for one of the longplayer's highlights.

New York native Keys was initially coy to reveal the identities of the rappers, saying, "I have a joint that's really special. I'm not gonna tell you. I can't tell you. You can't hear it yet.

"I got two guest MCs that have never been on a record together - ever. And it's all about NYC. I'm just gonna leave it like that. When you hear it, you're gonna trip out. Believe me."

But staffers at cable network MTV did their own investigations to uncover the names. The track and album - set for release this winter (03) - remain unnamed.
