Apparently we let Kanye get in his zone. Ready for another dose of Watch The Throne? Because by the sound of things, we're not too far from a sequel to the most decadently hyped collaboration album of 2011, as well as possibly new albums from the album's two chief players, Jay-Z and Kanye West.
This week, Jay-Z seems to have decided to hit the headlines strong. Not only did he break Lil Wayne’s Billboard record for Most Top 10 Singles By A Rapper with 18 (“Niggas In Paris”), but Hov also announced that he’ll play a pair of benefit shows at one of NYC’s Carnegie Hall (2/6 and 2/7) and dropped some serious hintage about a sequel to his album with Kanye West, which he's currently touring.
“It depends on how this thing finishes up,” Jay said in reference to recording in 2012. “We — I say ‘we’ because I’m in Throne mode — we’re in a great place creatively. You might see a Jay, then Kanye and a Throne album next year. You know, we’re really in a great place creatively. We really found our zone.”
Furthering speculation, at a Chicago stop of the Throne tour Kanye addressed his album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy's recent omission from Album of the Year category in Grammy nominations (though he does lead the pack with seven nods). "Don't worry, because me and Hov are gonna keep on making sh-t," he told the crowd.
