The process of writing and recording Watch The Throne has been extremely meaningful for both Jay-Z and Kanye West, as Hova has watched West (whom he calls his “brother”) turn from his protege into a hugely successful rapper in his own right. “I’m watching a guy I pretty much mentored become his own guy with his own opinions,” says Jay in a 10-minute documentary following the duo recording the joint LP in Australia. “It’s fantastic.” Check out the boys (plus Beyonce) going “H*A*M” behind the scenes of their new album.
“I love music that just really, really, really pushes, fucks people up,” says the MTV VMA nominee. “Like makes them extremely mad, they attempt to make music.”
