Roc Nation’s J. Cole has become the latest artist to weigh in on the upcoming Watch the Throne album and said Jay-Z has already hinted at its greatness.
While admitting he does not know an exact release date, Cole said he could tell the project is superb.
With all the rumors circling the ‘net, one can only wonder if J. Cole has heard anything on the release of ‘Watch The Throne.’ “I don’t know a date, but I asked him [Jay-Z] how it was and he just had that look on his face like it was f*cking crazy.” (Billboard)
G.O.O.D. Music’s CyHi the Prynce recently said Kanye West needed to put some finishing touches on 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)
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)
Music network VH1 later came forward to dismantle an Independence Day release.
Contrary to reports earlier today that speculated that Watch The Throne, Kanye West and Jay-Z’s highly anticipated new collaborative album, would be released on July 4, VH1 can exclusively confirm that the record will NOT be dropping on our nation’s birthday. We spoke to sources close to Jay-Z’s management team earlier today who have direct knowledge of the album’s release plans, and they confirmed that the rumored July 4th release date is “not happening.” Sorry to ruin your holiday, folks!
