After dropping Watch The Throne in August 2011, Jay-Z teased fans that another project could be on the horizon. During an interview with MTV News in December of that year, Hov said both he and Kanye would drop albums before they revisit The Throne. 2012 flew by and we never heard about the project again.
However, Mike Dean has reignited the discussion in his recent interview with HuffPost Live. “Yeah, eventually,” he said. “[They're] not working on it yet, it’s just talking about it. I actually talked to Jay about it last week.”
Dean has been busy at work helping to put the final touches on Kanye’s Yeezus, which the rapper held a private listening party in New York City. XXL followed up with Dean earlier today to see if Hov and ‘Ye have laid anything down for the album.
“I’m not really sure. They have been talking about it amongst themselves,” he said. “I’ll bring it up to them every once in a while. Just to keep it on people’s brains. I’m the Watch The Throne 2 instigator, you know? [Laughs.]”
Who knows when Watch The Throne 2 will see the light of day, but Dean did hint that it should be coming.
“It was just a really fun album,” Dean said. “It was great tour, so why not do another?”
