Jay-Z and Kanye: Watch The Throne

Watch The Throne (Click to Stream)

Whatitdo Wurld,

Here at the SwitchFlip Headquarters, we had to take the first half of the week to let all the “hoopla” settle before diving into a review for this Epic Mega-Star Collabo, appropriately titledWatch The Throne.  As musicians and artists first, SwitchFlip crew sat down w/ this album and threw it into repeat rotation to see if it was what we hoped for.  We were not let down, as Jay-Z and KanYe West present another piece of work that takes the genre to another level!  The assortment of producers on this album makes it refreshing (RZA, Q-Tip, the Neptunes, Swizz Beatz, Pete Rock, No I.D. etc) , as all the songs are individual soundscapes.  Jay n Ye sharpened their lyricism on each record to address all the issues of their collective plight and make an honest album depicting the dichotomy of dual heavy crowned kings sitting on The Throne.  We crossed our fingers, knocked on wood, and they delivered. A few of our personal faves are “New Day”, “Welcome to the Jungle” “Otis” “Murder to Excellence” & “Who Gon Stop Me”, but there’s something for all of our moods. Plus it depends if you have the deluxe issue or not (“Illest Motherfucker Alive” is bananas)  Anyhow, I’ll let my good peeps over at ESM and FreshNerd give you a review and the whole album to stream.
