So Metro FM has been broadcasting live from New York (yea whatever) because of this…
December 9th, 2011 : Grand Garden Arena
The longtime friends and music innovators inspired each other to new heights with their collaboration on WATCH THE THRONE recorded in person at various locations around the world. Over a year in the making and a truly global affair, the duo recorded in London and Bath in the UK, Abu Dhabi, Sydney, Paris, and New York City.
Though shrouded in secrecy, the album has already been heralded a masterpiece. The production is classic Kanye West soul, with the two MCs trading couplets over a sample manipulated the way only West can. ‘Sounds so soulful, don’t you agree?” intones JAY-Z, and the two launch into a treatise on swagger, claiming their rightful place at the top. Since the track’s release, the flood of praise for the track has been nothing short of deafening.
Both JAY-Z and Kanye West have each appeared as guests on the other’s stage, and now they come together for never-before-seen performances not only from their collaboration, WATCH THE THRONE but also songs from their classic catalogue. Fans should stay tuned: several key dates will offer unique opportunities to become a part of the WATCH THE THRONE movement.
And some very lucky bastards went and heeded this call… (Damn.)
