Jay-z And Kanye West - Watch The Throne 2LP


2013 Grammy Award Winner for Best Rap Song, Best Rap Performance, and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration!

Music icons and pop culture visionaries Jay-Z and Kanye West have 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 U.K., Abu Dhabi, Sydney, Paris and New York City. 

The album has already been heralded a masterpiece and features production from the likes of RZA, The Neptunes and Kanye's longtime collaborator Mike Dean. The short list of featured artists includes Frank Ocean, Beyonce, Curtis Mayfield and Mr. Hudson while lead track "Otis," brilliantly samples Otis Redding's "Try A Little Tenderness."

"On Watch the Throne, they push each other and have fun doing it, and the result is a stadium-sized event-rap spectacle that still sounds like two insanely talented guys' idiosyncratic vision. That's worth celebrating." - Pitchfork

"Nothing can be accomplished...if someone doesn’t stand up and act as the new gold standard. Kanye West and Jay-Z have proven themselves to be, at the very least, kings of just that notion." - Consequence of Sound
