One Year Later: Did Watch The Throne Really Change The Game?
Hip-Hop/Dub Step fusions.
Jay-Z and Kanye West aren’t the first rappers to mix dub step and hip-hop together. That’s been going on in Europe for a pretty long time, but like most things that Jay-Z and Kanye do, they’ve gotten the most attention for it. Since The Throne went in on “Who Gon Stop Me,” it seems like every rapper must have the obligatory “i’m-expanding-my-audience-so-let-me-rap-over-dubstep” record on every album. Once we heard 2 Chainz rapping over some pseudo dub-step records on his new album, Based On A T.R.U. Story, we knew that ish definitely had gotten real.
