“It’s rare that a show of this magnitude lives up to its hype, but Kanye and JAY Z actually managed to exceed it. From the Tron-inspired laser show to the hydraulic-powered stages at either end of the ACC to the pyrotechnics, it was a visual masterpiece. And then, of course, there was the music.”National Post

For this project, music icons and pop culture visionaries Jay Z & Kanye West joined their extraordinary talents to form the group ‘The Throne’ and released the most anticipated studio album event of 2011, ‘Watch The Throne‘. In August 2011, The Throne‘s extraordinary once-in-a-lifetime, Platinum selling Roc-A-Fella / Def Jam Recordings / Roc Nation album collaboration, ‘Watch The Throne‘, debuted at number 1 and has garnered several Grammy nominations for Jay Z & Kanye West.

The longtime friends and music innovators inspired each other to new heights with their collaboration on ‘Watch The Throne‘ recorded in person at various locations around the world. Over a year in the making and a truly global affair, Jay Z & Kanye West recorded the album in various locations including London and Bath in the UK, Abu Dhabi, Sydney, Paris, and New York City. The album features production from The RZA, The Neptunes and Kanye’s longtime collaborator Mike Dean. The short list of featured vocals includes Frank Ocean, Beyoncé, Curtis Mayfield and Mr. Hudson. The lead track, “OTIS,” brilliantly weaves Otis Redding’s “Try A Little Tenderness.”

“This show demonstrated how much can be accomplished with a few small decisions: as on the album, JAY Z and Kanye West worked smart, not big.” “The collaboration isn’t merely a power-sharing arrangement or a union of equals but an application to be rap’s greatest duo.” New York Times
