New details arise for Jay Z & Kanye West’s Watch the Throne
As if the last couple of years haven’t been busy enough for Kanye West, he announces yet two more releases this coming Spring and Summer; one a collaborative LP with mentor Jay Z called Watch the Throne, and another solo release that’s yet to be named. The Source has announced that after multiple release dates that have been pushed back repeatedly, as far back as August 2010, Watch the Throne will make it’s debut on July 4th.
Coming off of a praise worthy performance at Coachella this year, West stepped behind the board again to produce what producer Swizz Beatz says is already …shaping up into a masterpiece…All I can tell you is it passed the bar as reported on MTV.com. The album will be released on Def Jam Recordings as well as Kanye’s G.O.O.D Music label. One song, H.A.M which was met with lukewarm reviews and rumored to be the lead single off of the collaboration by Kanye himself, has since been scratched from the album, according to the track list released by OneThirtyBPM.com and their sources.
