One Year Later: Did Watch The Throne Really Change The Game?

 

Copycats 

How influential can you really be if people aren’t rushing to Xerox your swag? Although plenty of rappers will never admit it, they had to see the seismic shift that the release of Watch The Throne had to have had. People who have been much more open with their admiration of the ambitious collaborative effort include Chris Rock, who reportedly wanted to go on a Watch The Throne-inspired tour with Dave Chappelle. Much like the Child Rebel Soldier album, the Rick Ross/Drake YOLO project and the T-Wayne album, they were all talked about but never came to fruition.

    Not even close, in my opinion watch the throne represents everything thats wrong with hip hop music and the culture itself. Here you have two of the supposed best rappers and lyricists to ever do it and all they can come up with is seventy minutes worth of bling and self worship. Seriously? While I can respect the fact that they are no longer affected by financial troubles, the millions of people who bought the album, attend the shows and watch the videos aren’t. So disrepectful. I dont view this album as a work of art. They are just doing their part to keep the ‘hood ignorant and brainwashed. The illuminati is real and while these two guys are not sitting at the head table they are definately pawns in the game. Dont be distracted by all the beats and glamour really listen to the lyrics and then decide is the message in this song meant to build me up or destroy me? FYI- Lucifer was in charge of music before he was expelled from heaven!

    #1 Take Care wasnt a rap album it was listed as alternative #2 Tha Carter 4 was trash yet it supposedly sold 1million copies the first week… idu how ppl can call it self worship… u have a track called No Church in the Wild, Made In America, & New Day all introspective tracks… its sad when rappers get called out for flossin too much when all rappers talk abt is flossin…

    After I heard watch the Throne I really did tuck my whole summer in that was the only album and songs I listened to drake’s and Wayne’s album’s was as commercial as you can get that is why they sold as good as they did both albums didn’t even come close to competing with the watch the throne album. Definetly classic in my opinion and it gave me hope in hip hop
