Summary:Watch the Throne (out August 1st)
About Artist: Jay-Z and Kanye West, what else is there to say. These are two of the current if not all time greats. They are coming out with a collaboration album Watch the Throne on August for and of course it will be much anticipated.
About Song: This song will appear on Watch the Throne and I believe is the albums first single (not sure if H.A.M counted as single or not). The song, produced by Kanye West, sample Otis Redding’s Try a little Tenderness.
Favorite Part:
The sample is sooo soulful and awesome but as far a lines I like…
“Luxury rap, the Hermes of verses
Sophisticated ignorance, write my curses in cursive
I get it custom, you a customer
You ain’t ‘customed to going through Customs” (1:47)
I also love Jay-Z verse right after that and best part it there is NO HOOK.
