watch the throne

Make no mistake, Watch The Throne when it was released back on August 8, 2011, was a MOMENT. Today Hip-Hop Twitter is celebrating the monumental album turning eight.

Jay Z and Kanye West’s collaborative Watch The Throne project sparked a lawsuit over the track “Made In America,” which featured Frank Ocean on the hook. A lawsuit from  Joel McDonald claiming the track was his was filed in 2014 but it was decided that singer and songwriter did not have a strong enough case […]

Jay Z and Kanye West’s collaborative album Watch The Throne ranks among the peak moments in recent Hip-Hop history, but it’s now in question whether or not some foul play was involved with its creation. Or at the very least, that’s what New York musician Joel McDonald alleges.

As promised, BBC delivers the second installment of Zane Lowe’s candid discussion with Jay-Z. This time, the Brooklyn legend reveals why he couldn’t allow “Holy Grail” to end up on Watch The Throne, despite Kanye West’s protests, and more.

UPDATE: BBC released the supporting video featuring Jay-Z candidly speaking on his dispute with Kanye West, Magna Carta Holy Grail, and more. See that below. After Kanye West released “Big Brother” many moons ago, it was clear that he and partner in rhyme Jay-Z have a friendly competition going. Now, in an interview with Zane Lowe […]

“I would like to thank the swap meet for his hat,” as quoted by Jay-Z and directed towards The-Dream, was what the ether King Hov jokingly spat during his acceptance for his Grammy for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration. “No Church In the Wild,” the captivating intro from 2011’s Watch the Throne, granted Jay-Z, Kanye West, Frank Ocean […]

Now this is something you can get moderately excited about, even if Eminem isn’t. 

People love to steal Drake’s music. With a vast catalog of club hits and emo-laced tracks, Internet pirates have lots of material to choose from, but “The Motto” seems to be their favorite. According to Spin.com, the very record that launched the YOLO revolution was downloaded 458,038 times  in the United States, over a six-month tracking […]

Hit-Boy’s career  is still moving at a lightning pace, and the West Coaster is enjoying the ride. Having already snagged a major production credit on last year’s Watch the Throne, 2012 has been about Hit-Boy’s rap dreams, a move which has been equally well received by the mainstream. After dropping his HITStory mixtape a couple of […]
