What I seen while "Watching The Throne"


Thinking about the girl in all leopard
Who was rubbing the wood like Kiki Shepherd
Two tattoos one read No Apologies
The other said Love is Cursed by Monogamy
It’s somethin’ that the pastor don’t preach
It’s somethin’ that a teacher can’t teach
When we die the money we can’t keep
But we probably spend it all cause the pain ain’t cheap, preach


I think it's safe to say that the Hip Hop album of Summer 2011 is "Watch The Throne." As soon as the clocks strike 12, twitter flooded with Watch The Throne quotes. Kanye brought the lyrics and flow of genius, while Jay Z delivered as usual. I know #TeamVOGUE|Diaspora heard the album, so what do you all think?

Did Kanye body Jay Z on this collaborative album? 
What's you favorite song? 
Do you think this album will go down as on of the greatest album in Hip Hop history? 
Did Watch The Throne live up to the Hype?

VogueNote: Check out Jayne Zest! He cute??? lol 

D'Mor: No style; No Brand! No Market; No Money!  Its that simple.

    Kanye did body Jay on this album, although it comes to no surprise kanye has been the best main stream rapper lyrically out the past 5 years. However being a huge jayz and kanye fan on the first spin this album was lacking the luster i thought it would. I might have to give it another listen or two before i feel it but its not one of the greatest rap albums. & sidenote that jayz and kanye mix looks like a bull dog and a camel morphed together lol

  3. Masterpiece ...from the production..to the whole concept that went throughout the album...loved how jay and Kanye went back and forth. Jay Z sounds "Hungry"...glad nothing leaked the wait was worth while. Best album of 2011. Kendrick Lamar's Section 80 comes second in my opinion.

  4. Jay Z is no longer the mic/Mike Jordan of recording. He might wanna fall back from recording
