When we whipped up our summer preview of Kanye West and Jay-Z’s joint LP Watch The Throne , we noted that it had a loose, rumored release date of July 4 — i.e. this Monday. Yeah, right — like that’s going to happen. Or is it? MTV has stirred up more speculation by prying some information on the album — or non-information, depending on how you read it — from Kanye’s protege CyHi the Prynce. Try to solve the mystery below! “They are ready to go. Right now, all the music and everything is done,” CyHi told Sway in an interview clip. “But you know my guy — we over here with [Kanye], so ‘Ye is gonna add his last little pizzazz, and it’s going to be ready for you guys soon.”

Er, okay, CyHi — so will Jay and Kanye be shooting fireworks off for their album release on Independence Day or what?

“I don’t know. ‘Ye can do something, and he can just do it how he wanna do it,” CyHi explained. “He can just put it out tomorrow if he wanted to, and that’s what ‘Ye want to do.”

There you have it. Let’s just hope that when this thing finally does arrive, it’s far less hammy than the ho-hum “H.A.M.”
