Jay-Z and Kanye to Turn Joint EP Into a Full-Length Album
Last month, Kanye West promised that he and his big brother Jay-Z would be teaming up to release an EP dubbed 'Watch the Throne' before Thanksgiving. But the duo has bigger plans for their collabo. 'Ye recently gave an interview with MTV's Sway discussing the project, revealing that the EP will now be released as a full-length LP after he and Jay head to south of France to lay down more cuts.
"We putting out a whole album now," he explained. "We had done five so far, and a few of 'em were out there and then I put 'em on my album-- sorry Jay!" joked Kanye, referring to a few G.O.O.D. Friday tracks that featured the pair. "We're going to the south of France just to record new ideas. But we'd probably be done with the album in a day."
Kanye continued by explaining how the project came to be, kidding with the MTV host. "I dunno, I guess he just likes Chicagoans a lot!" he said. "Think about it. It's really easy. He only has to think of 10 verses!"
The pair most recently appeared on Kanye's remix to 'Power' featuring Swizz Beatz, 'So Appalled' featuring RZA, Pusha T, Swizz and CyHi the Prynce and 'Monster' featuring Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj and Bon Iver. 'Ye claimed that he's putting a few of those tracks on his album 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,' dropping Nov. 22.
