While a new single from Kanye West and Jay-Z‘s joint album, ‘Watch the Throne,’ has yet to be heard, that hasn’t stopped the masses from chomping at the bit to get some news on the songs set to be released on the highly anticipated project. Last week, an official tracklist for the effort was released via Hov’s Life + Times website, and now eager rap fans can find out who lent their skills on the songwriting, beatmaking and musicianship tip, as the album’s productions credits have been revealed.

According to DDotOmen.com, a slew of superstars contributed to one of the year’s most sought after collaborations. While the recent tracklist unveiling originally showed Frank Ocean, Mr. Hudson and Beyonce as vocalists, now Seal and Kid Cudi are both featured. Seal on ‘Lift Off’ and Mr. Rager himself lending supporting vocals to ‘Murder to Excellence,’ ‘Gotta Have It,’ ‘Illest Motherf—– Alive’ and ‘The Joy.’
