Excited? Kanye West & Jay-Z Album almost complete
These days, you do not always find musical collaborations worthy of epic status but if you are a fan of mainstream hip-hop/rap, you could say that the upcoming ‘Watch The Throne’ joint album from Kanye West and Jay-Z will fit under the definition of “epic”.
The project has been hyped, debated, analyzed and dissected for the past several months and finally we are getting closer to the actual release. Guru, a producer on the project, confirmed the news to This is London.
“Right now, I’m really trying to get Jay and Kanye to hurry up and finish this ‘Watch The Throne’ album because the world needs to hear it. It just needs little tweaks and things like that. But the core of the album is finished. Kanye takes what contributing producers do and adds on to it and I think that’s his genius.”
Long-time rapper Talib Kweli appears to be a fan of the new project and insists that those detoured by the quirky first single, “H.A.M.”, should not be under the influence that the rest of the album is similar in sound.
“I think the most unexpected part is kind of out the way with ‘H.A.M.’ That was probably the last kind of track I was expecting to hear from Jay and Kanye, but they definitely have some tricks up their sleeves. And they have some types of songs that you would think they might have. They really did a good job at covering all aspects, from the songs I’ve heard.”
Excited for Watch The Throne? Who do you like more as an artist — Jay-Z or Kanye West?
