Building off of the success of Eminem and Royce Da 5'9's collaborative album comes a similar effort by none other than Kanye West and Jay-Z called Watch The Throne. It looks like these guys are just playing around with the whole "illuminati" thing and having some fun with it.
So the idea is, Watch the Throne will be released digitally similar to Radiohead and NIN’s business model. This wouldn’t be too surprising, given Kanye and Jay-Z’s admiration for both artists. And what would be a grander way to release such a potentially immense album?
A writer over at Complex Magazine tweeted: “Kanye West and Jay-Z are about to pull a Radiohead. #watchthethrone #declarationofindependence.” But that is hardly a source. So at this point most of it is hearsay.
But regardless if it comes out on the 4th of July or not (we’ll know sooner rather than later) – a surprise digital release seems likely for Watch the Throne. When, is the question. We’ll make sure to update you guys if any legitimate sources actually come out confirming this. But for now, chalk this up as an enticing rumor.
