Jay-Z + Kanye West’s ‘Watch the Throne 2′ Is in the Works
This is good news for Jay-Z and Kanye West fans. The rap duo's platinum-selling LP 'Watch the Throne' will get a sequel. West's go-to producer Mike Dean has confirmed that a follow-up to the opulent album is in the works although he didn't give specifics.
In a recent interview with Quiet Lunch, Dean, who has engineered and produced West's previous albums like 'Graduation' and 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,' said he will assist on production for 'Watch the Throne 2.' "It's not started yet, but it's coming," he teases. This is terrific news for fans waiting to hear Hov and Yeezy collaborate again on another album
Most likely, the 'Watch the Throne' follow-up won't hit stores until next year once Yeezy is finished promoting his G.O.O.D. Music compilation 'Cruel Summer.' West just premiered his 30-minute film of the same name at the Cannes Film Festival. No information yet on when 'Cruel Summer' will arrive in stores.
Elsewhere, G.O.OD. Music rapper Pusha T is making enemies with his latest single 'Exodus 23:1,' where he supposedly threw some lyrical darts at Young Money superstar Drake. His boss, Lil Wayne, didn't like Pusha T's diss and fired off this vitriolic tweet: "Fuk pusha t and anybody that love em." Meanwhile, Young Chop didn't like Pusha T's comments about him on the song and sent his response on Twitter. "F--- (pusha t) [I'm] on that," he wrote.
One thing's for sure it's going to be a hot summer for the G.O.O.D. Music camp.
