Kanye West and Jay-Z Joint Album to Drop in One Week
Didn't get enough of Kanye West in 2010? The Chi-town rapper is already planning big things for the New Year, making a grand announcement while celebrating New Year's Eve in Las Vegas with his big brother Jay-Z. Though he promised that 'Watch the Throne,' his collabo project with Jigga, would land in stores before '10's end, 'Ye has announced that the highly anticipated disc would be arriving in one week.
While performing his hit 'Runaway' and 'Monster' with Jay, Kanye took the opportunity to share with the audience at Marquee that the project will be here sooner than expected. "We got that new 'Watch the Throne,' comin' in one week," said a smiling 'Ye, posted up next to Hov with a bottle of champagne in hand.
Kanye first revealed the project's existence in August, when he announced on his Twitter account that he and Jay would be dropping the five-song mini-album, with the first single set to be 'Monster.' He later announced that the EP would be turned into a full-length album, heading to England with Jay to put in work on the LP.
So far, 'Watch the Throne' has spawned the single 'That's My Bitch' featuring Elly Jackson, with the track hitting the 'Net in late November. The project is said to feature production from Pete Rock and Q-Tip, and 'Ye has described that the album is "going to be very dark and sexy, like couture hip-hop."
