‘Watch the Throne’ Sequel: Jay-Z and Kanye West Plotting Another Album, Producer Says
Who’s ready for “N—-s in Paris II” or a second helping of “H.A.M.?” As the NME reports, producer Mike Dean recently told Quiet Lunch that Jay-Z and Kanye West are plotting a sequel to their Watch the Throne collaborative album.
Dean is well positioned to have the inside scoop. He worked on the Kanye albums Graduation and My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, as well as the original Throne. At the moment, he’s putting the finishing touches on Cruel Summer, the much-anticipated posse album from Yeezy’s G.O.O.D. Music label.
“I’m working on the G.O.O.D. Music album, of course and ‘Watch The Throne 2′ — it’s not started yet, but it’s coming,” Dean said.
Earlier this week, at the Cannes Film Festival, West unveiled a short film based on Cruel Summer. The experimental clip stars Kid Cudi as a thief who falls for an Arabian princess. To quote the first Throne disc, “No one knows what it means, but it’s provocative!”
