Remember when Kanye and Jay-Z were supposed to release a collaboration album? In January ‘Ye tweeted with gusto about the new project, saying things like: "THIS IS HIGH END RAP MUSIC" and, "I just threw some bassoon on this muthaf**ka." However, after releasing first single H.A.M. and blazing through their February release date without releasing any new material, Watch The Throne seemed like it might never happen.
Never fear, producer Bangledesh (of Lil’ Wayne’s “6 Foot, 7 Foot”) reports good news. In an interview with MTV, he confirmed that he had been in Paris working with the two icons. "I was requested to come out there and just give a little insight on the album and give them a beat or two and add and create with 'Ye, which was a big honor," he said with excitement. Bangladesh went on to say that the album is "actually on another level...actually," which is not a stretch to imagine, considering how much talent is involved.
Also rumored to be forthcoming from the project: a follow-up single called “Lift Off” featuring Bruno Mars and Beyoncé Knowles. To quote Bangladesh: "Sh*t is dope man, Sh*t is dope."
