While fans continue to anticipate Jay-Z and Kanye West's long-awaited Watch the Throne joint album, G.O.O.D. Music artist CyHi the Prynce promises the project is ready for release.
Although he could not confirm if its July 4th release is still on, CyHi said Ye would likely add a couple finishing touches to the project.
"They are ready to go. Right now, all the music and everything is done," CyHi said in an interview. "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...I don't know the business of the logistics of it -- Those are the bosses. You never know what they gonna do and how they gonna put it out. They might put it out yesterday." (MTV)
Earlier this week, rumors emerged claiming the project would drop as a digital-only release.
Kanye and Jay are so serious...and yet...so sincere with their new album. I am hearing one of the craziest rumors in a minute. Word on the block is that Jay-Z and Yeezy are going to release Watch The Throne on MONDAY as a digital ONLY release. I am not sure what banner they will fall under or anything of that nature, but I assume they are looking to avoid the normal leaks that occur. (Illseed Rumors)
A few weeks ago, reports of a July 4th release hit the Internet.
The Source has received a solid date for the release of Jay-Z and Kanye West's collaborative and highly anticipated album Watch The Throne: July 4th. The information was shared exclusively to The Source by a source very close to the Hov and Ye super project. Later on this evening there will be a G.O.O.D. Music event presented by Heineken and Kanye West held at a still undisclosed location in New York City. Rumors are speculating that at said event, Kanye and Jay-Z might be making an announcement about the July 4th release date. Once the July 4th date is confirmed, remember that you heard it here first. Fireworks indeed. (The Source)
