Today was Kanye West's 36th birthday. To celebrate, he decided to hang out with a couple of friends named Jay-Z and Nas. And maybe if we're lucky, the three might have gone to the studio at some point during the festivities to record a few tracks, fulfilling the fantasies of hip-hop fans everywhere.

This is not the first time Jay-Z and Nas have been spotted together in the last week. The two were in the studio together along with Justin Timberlake and Timbaland. Jay has been hard at work in the studio for awhile now, posing with other rappers such as Raekwon and Drake. Clearly, Hov has something cooking.

Meanwhile, as we all know by now, Kanye is gearing up to release his much-anticipated solo album, Yeezus, on June 18. At this point the album remains an enigma to all but West's inner circle.
