We told you last year about the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jay-Z[/lastfm]/[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kanye West[/lastfm] project Watch The Throne, which started as an EP but is now set to be a full album.According to no closer source than Yeezy himself, the album will be released…next week!“Watch the Throne coming in one week,” Ye said at Marquee nightclub, which celebrated its grand opening on New Year’s Eve.A couple of mitigating notes:
- This was said at a nightclub. NEVER believe what celebrities tell you at nightclubs.
- Bottles of Ace of Spades champagne were being passed around liberally. NEVER believe what drunk celebrities tell you.
- In the history of rap music, an emcee has never told the truth about a release date (right, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Dr. Dre[/lastfm]?). NEVER believe what celebrities tell you about release dates.
Still…how would this be for a New Year’s gift? A full album from the team that brought you this AMP classic?Are you ready for Watch The Throne to drop? Or are you still hyped on listening to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy?[Source: SOHH]
