Easily one of the most memorable (and quoted) songs of the past year, the track has seen its fair share of replays throughout various stops along the stateside Watch The Throne tour. Coinciding with the memorability of the song itself, the accompanying video affirms the luxury rap duo’s commitment to setting a new standard within the mediums of both music and film.
Where do I begin when talking about the performances of Jay-Z and Kanye West for the “Watch The Throne Tour” in San Jose at the HP Pavilion. I have been going to shows for years and I can say that this concert was best that I have ever been to. The two-hour plus show represented nothing less than a milestone in music history with hits after hits from two living legends. Do yourself a favor and click the following link to view my attempt to capture the moment with pictures and videos (LINK).

I know what I’m doing on October 16th.
Brilliant mini documentary featuring behind the scenes footage of Jay-Z and Kanye West making “Watch The Throne”. Features unseen clips of Jay and Kanye in their element.
Here is the first look at the cover to Hov and Ye’s upcoming album, Watch The Throne. The cover appears to be made of metal and will be releasing on August 2nd (pre-order).
This is an unconfirmed tracklistings, but this may be more correct than I believe since Jay has gone on record to say there’s only ten tracks on the entire album. However, “H.A.M.” doesn’t seem to make an appearance on it (unless it’s a “bonus” track), so per usual take this track list (and its rumored July release date) with a grain of salt.
1. Lift Off f. Bruno Mars & Beyoncé
2. Murder To Excellence
3. Illest Mother(f**ker) Alive
4. Why I Love You So (Guilt Trip)
