Jay-Z & Kanye West: Expensive Taste

Hip-Hop has always been a musical genre known for its expensive taste. But when Jay-Z and Kanye West, two of rap’s biggest spenders, teamed up for Watch the Throne, no one knew their flows would be so costly. XXL staffers have been talking about the album since it dropped earlier this month, and have been fighting over whether Hov or ‘Ye had the more pricey lines. Luckily, an inside source found the duo’s receipts. And if you didn’t know, they rich, bitch! —Jesse Gissen

    In my opinion the best verse on ye’s latest cut was the guest on Devil in a New Dress, whoever it was spit straight FIRE. You don’t get real rappers like that in the game anymore.

    You guys are missing quite a few lines for both artist and all the other songs from the album that are not listed have even more lines. So this is inaccurate. :)
