The Throne (Jay-Z & Kanye West), Watch the Throne

Ever the wordsmith, and master of the double entendre, Jay-Z knew just exactly what he was doing when he and Kanye West named their collaborative effort, Watch the Throne. Grandiosity is a given with stars of their ilk, especially on bonus cuts like “Illest Motherfucker Alive” and “H*A*M.” But a closer listen to most of the tracks here reveal a different type of grandeur. The duo aren’t ballin’ to break the bank, as much as they’re aiming to shatter a caste system that keeps too many black, brown and yellow faces from joining their party.

Among the centerpieces to this train of thought is the standout “Niggas in Paris,” featuring Jay and ‘Ye trading luxurious lines about watches and wealth, with a winking nod that their successes are the minority in terms of achievement.

“Ball so hard, this shit weird/We ain’t even suppose to be here,” Jay spits over Hit-Boy’s pulsating production. “Since we here/It’s only right that we be fair.”

“Murder to Excellence,” “Made In America” and “That’s My Bitch” are equally tinged with a political or socio-economic hue. But the pair also get personal, both on the RZA-helmed “New Day” and “Why I Love You,” where Jay, once again, revisits  the Roc-A-Fella split. On the former, however, West is as self-aware as he’s ever been, recalling his controversial comments made in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina via his treatment of his future son.

“See I just want ‘em to have an easy life/Not like Yeezy life,” he raps over the melancholy number. “Just want ‘em to be someone people like/Don’t want ‘em to be hated all the time, judged/Don’t be like your daddy that would never budge.”

Collectively, the project is incredibly ambitious, yet dexterous; West and his band of producers skillfully lay down a musical foundation that makes it easy to dance to and not be worn down by the, at times, didactic messages. The set isn’t without fault, though. “Lift Off” feels too airy on a project this heavy and “Welcome to the Jungle” comes across as forced in comparison to the rest of the material. But, with an effort as publicized as this, the shortcomings will, undoubtedly—and unfairly—draw as much attention as the exemplary. Heavy are the heads that wear the crown. —Jayson Rodriguez

  • Smitty

    Just go ahead and put this out there this is album of the year borderline classic every time i listen to it it grows on me a lil more Jay Z best ever or at least in the conversation

  • jfl11

    I agree with dude. Lift Off and Welcome to the Jungle are clearly the low points, no other complaints tho. Agree with the XL’s across the board too.

    • CrazzcC

      ok lift off, i understand but what jay z album is without bey’s voice. u can tell that was kanye’s idea tho. and i think that swizz beat shouldnt have been put on watch the throne, but its like jay sticks to the same shit like every album, he has to have a SWIzzy BEAT..LOL. great album best hip hop album i heard in a while.

  • NAPTOWNNUISANCE

    I previewed the album last night on Itunes and I thought there was only a few songs worth buying. To be honest I thought it came off sounding a little overhyped. Now I can only say that because I previewed it and didnt get to listen to the whole album, because it was only a little of each song. But Nothing blew me away, like this is going down as one of the best albums ever.

  • kidnothing1

    I felt Lift Off and Made in America were the weak ones. Loved everything els. “Who gon stop me huuuuuh???”

  • Ivory

    One of the greatest albums of all time…i can debate with the best of them…

    • Moron

      Your a moron. This album was HORRIBLE!!!

      • Anonymouse

        I wouldn’t say it was horrible, but coming off of MBDTF, Kanye disappointed. Maybe expectations were too high, but the whole album had really few real lyrics in it. It was all Gucci and Rolex, no Chi Town or DMX. The beats were suprisingly weak too, I think the whole package deserved a L.

  • DIZZLEMANSR…

    THIS IS A CLASSIC IF I HAVE EVER HEARD ONE!!!! The songs that were critiqued are still head and shoulders above anything that has been put out in years. The production and originality definitely deserve a XXL. The lyrics sometimes lack, but that is obviously at the expense of the messages in the songs. Are you seriously going to give this album the same rating as Royce 5’9″. and The Game. This is classic. “What’s drugs my dealer?”

    • Spowers

      agree dizzle these rating systems are wack. absolutely no way Success is Certain (or most recent rap albums) are on watch the thrones level. i respect royce as an MC but Success is Certain definitely disappointing me and has little to no replay value. On the other hand, I’ve listened to WTT about 7 times already and i plan to keep banging it for a while.

    • Dj Ken

      What ???? WTT>>>>Success is certain ????????? guarantee, u did even listen to Royce’s album. You are just offended because it got an XL

    • a

      yea i definitly agree. It at LEAST deserves a xxl for originality. this was some far out sht

  • Donte

    ……..smdh

  • Jayson

    @NAPTOWNNUISANCE It’s a tough album to judge after one listen or only a cursory listen. I had to really keep revisiting it and talk about it with everyone to get deeper into it. They went for something big, which is commendable; in today’s game, though, sometimes you don’t have people’s ears for that long, unfortunately.

    • http://thisis50.com PM

      I’ve only really listen to it in my car a few tracks at a time. I have to say I don’t totally love it off the bat, this is one of those mow the lawn do some work albums. You gotta find time to really listen to it. So far there are no club bangers of any kind on there, not to say Jay-z or Kayne ever made club type songs. I guess what I really mean there are no radio instant hits on it. I like it overall but don’t see myself keeping in my playlist all year long.

      • igotacos

        Made it in america is definetly a radio song. Sounds like that lighters track off hell the sequel

  • ff1one

    Great album and great reviews from various sources. Why not give it the xxl? its classic based on the combo, the production and lyrics. These dudes sparred with each other an you can feel it in the music. Yea, the Bey assisted lift off doesn’t really fit but it fits for them women who buy it. See, jay is a buisness man and from what i researched took some joints off the album to mmake it more commerical and more appealing to a mass audience. Yea, some people hate on that but at the same time hip hop is more than an art.

    Great album. xxl 10/10 Imo.

  • Tru Talk

    originality only xl is bullshit…. its one of the most original album i have ever heard heard… what a fuckin joke

    • NAPTOWNNUISANCE

      Explain to me whats original about two highly paid ans successful rappers dedicating a cd to braggin about how successful they are? Sorry heard it a million times. Not hatin just statin the facts. I think the originality rating should be a notch lower.

      • jimmyjam

        so the fuck wat u probably ate up tht wu album and tht all they did. u obviously ddnt listen to the album, u probably just assumed tht what they talked about. just lie i assume ur a white kid from the suburbs, cos only white kids from the suburbs bitch like u!!

        • The Truth

          And I am going to assume that you can barely convey your thoughts in clear and concise English!

      • a

        jay z put it this way. Every sonnet is about love but how you say it makes the difference. In the way this was put together compared to every other song it was very original

      • BIG AL KAPONE

        XL that’s it….Ya’ll crazy!! XXXL is what this album is. Whoever says this ain’t the dopest album in years is a fool and is used to wackness. New day,no church in the wild,made in america,Watch you need,joy,H.A.M,primetime,why i love you(jay-z at his best),murder to excellence(str8 fire) and who’s gonna stop is CRACK all day.Otis is crack that’s why everyone copying that song. that’s 12 out of 16 songs that are by far better than anything out. even that’s my bitch grew on me.Lift off is for stadiums.
        Did i mention niggas in paris the dopest song off the album instant club banger…..
        You think lyrics are weak…listen to why i love you,whos gonna stop me,murder to excellence.
        beats niggas in paris,otis,welcome to the jungle
        Greatest rapper alive HOVA,Greatest producer alive kanye

    • thoms3

      it’s all subjective, I don’t know why people get into these arguements, over a rating of music.. it’s okay to say this is a classic and it’s ok to say it’s crap…because it’s a person giving their opinion..if you like it buy it ..if you don’t like it don’t buy it..

      • $yk

        * applause *

        now if they realized that their opinions mean nothing w/o some factual info, then we can have some good convos on these boards…

        I see very few disputing the rating by using songs off of the album…a major fail

      • JugularKill

        Na it’s not ok. No one looks at movie reviews for a simple minded nigga opinion.
        .
        .
        WTT is st8 fire. 3 or 4 of the songs are bragging a bit too much tho allow Jay-Z to brag about watches and money since he actually has the shit he talks about unlike Baby & Lil Wayne.
        .
        .
        I’ve heard Bad meets evil, Carter 4 and Red album WTT wins on lyrics. Its like RUN DMC again but better, Kanye is starting his lines from where Jay-z finishes.. old school techniques with new.

        One of the best things about Watch The Throne is the lack of dumb nigga features to get attention. No WackaFlocka, no Lil Wayne, no features from dumb ass Drake. They say WTT is gimmicky but it’s just Jay & Ye. They recorded 7 tracks in 3 day. The documentary shows Jay-Z spitting from his head without paper & pen just like he always does.
        .

        .
        .
        Someone who is serious about music will instantly tell Watch The Throne is one of the best produced music albums.
        .
        .
        Some of my fav produced hip hop albums are:
        All eyes on me,
        Shyne,
        Hell Have No Fury,
        It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot,
        Dark Twisted Fantasy,
        The Black Album.

        Watch The Throne beats all of them, just scrapes past All Eyes On Me. The production is classic. You niggaz are mad, that little italian jazz sounding music of the skits is a turning point for hip hop. And the song arrangements, many songs are 2 songs in 1.

        And best of all there’s no pop ass lickers like Eminem “Love the way you lie”, or The Games “Red Nation” which has the gayest sample ever, type of shit they’ll play in gay clubs. The closest pop track is “Lift off” but that’s more like Stadium music.

        Beats, = 5 Arrangement, mixing, skits CLASIC.
        Lyrics = 4 3 or 4 songs are too materialistic but still true life.
        Originality = 6 Some next level shit 6 out of 5 well deserved.

        You place “Watch The Throne” in the same music collection as “Michael Jackson Dangerous” and The Beatles “A Hard Day’s Night “.

        You do not put Watch The Throne in the same collection or folder as Cater X, Red Album or bad meets evil . Those albums are just typical hip hop albums of this generation not classics that will be talked about in 10/20/50yrs.

        Before you get all sensitive, learn to appreciate quality before you judge ppl on their street cred. Fuck street cred, really Game is a pussy who name drops, Lil Wayne kisses his daddy, Eminem crys about his mummy, Kanye West is a sensitive big head, Jay-Z brags about shit we don’t care bout. Wit that said Watch The Throne is still light years beyond any shit you’re bumping now. Respect attention to detail and turning points of hip hop.

  • Vert

    this rating system needs to be fixed it gets XLs across the board and comes out with an XL overall i just don’t get it this album def deserves a XXL

  • imastunna303

    smh this is an xxl album. they give clipse hell hath no fury a xxl but not this?

  • rozay

    how can you give sorry 4 da wait xl aswell? cmon man, wayne used some old beats and lyrics are wack. if ou didn’t give xxl to kanye and jay you should change your magazine name to xl. Can’t wait till Carter 4 drops, so you Wayne d-rider can give him xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxl.

  • L

    you mean to tell me that this and sorry 4 the wait mixtape are the same? hell no either put this to xxl or put that sorry for the shit mixtape to like M lol

  • http://www.soundcloud.com/soulrebel360 Soul The Rebel

    just didn’t move me … but hey, this IS a rap album, isn’t it? because this sure isn’t a hip-hop album.

  • y211

    Too much Kanye, too little Jay. To be truthful, I’ve been more of a Kanye fan, than a Jay fan lately, but this album is TOO lopsided for me. Sounds more like a Kanye album with Jay-Z featured on every track. Not a bad album, just not classic imo. Also, the unconventional song structures got tiring after a while. Made me yearn for a straight out three verse, all out lyrical attack from both over some Blueprint 2 era production. And the tightest track on the album [H.A.M] has been out for a while. Don’t mean to upset any fanboys out there, but I’d prefer it more if it was ‘Graduation’ era Kanye, and ‘The Black Album’ era Jay.

  • Tator

    “Lift Off” is good record IMO, just in the wrong spot on the album. “Made In America” I understood, but shoulda been a bonus track, along with “Primetime”.

  • KBoom

    This album doesn’t even get the max grade for originality… So innovative it probaby should… This is an XXL for me, the beats are very good, and lyrics if you listen carefully are pretty profound… Classic stuff

  • XXL

    First, This is not even the best rap album of 2011…..dozens of albums are better.
    1. Saigon
    2. Tech n9ne
    3. Bme

    5. WAR

    How the fuck is lyrics XL ???? Lyrics is straight up mediocre, how can u place BME in the same category as WTT for lyrics ????

  • TJ

    3.5/5 for me. Good beats, too much sampling though, lyrics are cheesy as fuck !!!

  • Law

    “master of the double entendre, Jay-Z” ??????????????? Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah

  • Beaze

    Wow, this album is becoming the single most hyped piece of crap in hip-hop history. Its more of a pop or rock album solely judging by the beats and the lyrics are subpar at best. Its sounds as if Jay and Ye didnt even challenge eachother. “Why I love you” is another excuse for Jay to tell everybody what he did for everybody else,smh but hes holding up JCole’s album and has him waiting for a verse(and if cole complains about it, its off with his head). This whole cd(with the exception of 4 tracks gives them an excuse to brag about the same bullshit theyve been talking about(black cards, maybachs, watches, foriegn clothes, etc) Jay even brags about basquiat paintings and says that type of taste is usually reserved for europeans(wtf?) And for most of the album Jays flow is lazy at best(definitely the worst ive heard of him thus far on any album) The beats are trash(no head nodders, except for joy) Even on Otis,supposedly an ode to otis redding…the whole track is materialistic. I liked “new day” til yeezy talking that “i might make my son a republican so everybody know he love white people” bullshit. This album deserves a M at best, stop dickriding.

  • JZ the Puerto Rican one

    I must be one of the only ones, to really loves “Who Gon Stop Me”? No one really mentions it. Love the beat, especially the switch up at about 2:50 in.

    Overall, not quite what I was expecting from these two, needless to say, it is growing on me. Makes me step out of the box.

    This seems like one of those albums you have to listen to from beginning to end and not in tracks. Although, I feel like the album hits a nice stride with tracks 8, 9, and 10. Wish there was more of it.

    Still listening…

  • tyron

    WTT was the first album i have purchased in years and honestly i am by no means disappointed in Jay & Ye’… I believe it deserves an XXL as well and I too agree there was a sort of inspiring “come join us” undertone to much of the so called bragging or bantering… Great piece of work in a time where substance is rare.

  • Hip Hop

    Hype and arrogance created Watch the Throne and stifled the creative revelation it could have been. It would be nice if that could serve as a kind of lesson for the hip hop world, but somehow that seems unlikely.

  • jarett brodie

    everyone keeps talking shit about lift off. thats shit is the second intro to the intro,and the words define the concept of the whole album. B controlled that shit. And welcome to the jungle fits perfectly with the rest. the beat is so cold, the way it shifts in between,and once again the words are so tough.”Black Axel Rose”. this album is true black power at its finest. Niggas need a cue tip!!!

  • jarett brodie

    this album defines the complexity of Black success on a higher level. these niggas a telling black people that we can really take it this far. Telling these white people that luxury living can be an everyday way of life for blacks and the so called European taste will no longer be thought of as such. But there’s also the human side of this. Saying that, through success breeds complex emotion, and of course Haters!!! lolol!!

  • jonny bizness

    Iv’e listened to it constantly since 501a.m (uk time) last monday whether it be on the way to work,boxing,cooking,playing Fifa 11 and smoking a jay.This album is borderline classic but the writer is right them 2 joints are the worst on the album.New Day and Murder to Excellence stand out with Gotta Have It growing on me more with each day.A xxl if theres ever is one.

  • PDub

    Classic. It wouldve been better if Big Sean was on Ni__as in Paris. But ofcourse its a Ye and Jay album

  • kedordu

    im sorry but this album is jay going backwards . I WAS EXPECTING SONGS LIKE THANK YOU , REAL AS IT GETS , ALREADY HOME . NAH I HEARD IT BEFORE . I HAVE IT ON MY LAPTOP .DOESNT MOVE ME

  • Liyahh

    i love the album. i agree with the rating.

  • Shawty J

    I think it deserves the XL rating, I loved the album but I still have a few complaints.

    Why did they shorten “That’s My Bitch”?

    Why wasn’t “Lift Off” used as the intro? It’s listed as second as if it’s a full track, and that’s one of the reasons people hate it.

    What’s with the beat switches on “Who Gon Stop Me” it sounds like the beat switches were supposed to represent Ye and Jay killing the beat, but it feels like I got cheated out of hearing one of the best beats on the album.

    What’s with Ye’s minor contributions to “Welcome To The Jungle” and “Why I Love You”, he might as well have not been on the songs.

  • ty

    In respect of lift off and welcome to the jungle its the song choice from both persons. Lift off was kanye type feel where jay had like 8 bars and welcome had jay-z spitting like vol3 days with swizz. I believe the two songs were intentionally placed to stand out or simple lesser quality because the lack of the combination.

  • SymDosing

    Big surprise here. I know the phrase drinking the kool-aid is overused but it is perfect for XXL reviews. There was a big feud awhile back during Eminems release, everyone knew it was going to get at least an XL, and some lady pointed out his notorious use of I and EE rhyme scheme as well as childish rhymes. I listened to his latest cd and noticed I was oblivious to years of his lyrics. He really makes terrible lyrics sound hot, Kanye is good at telling everyone he’s a genius and blinding everyone with his “poetic” ability as well. Even with the new Slaughterhouse joint Eminem was on, when I first heard it I thought he was straight fire, than I looked at the lyrics and the ending rhyme scheme for everything was like “I electrify, whats happening guys, crapper and I, Capital I
    little faggot and die.” And I thought, a kid in junior high could really write this stuff, and he does dance the borderline of being an ICP rapper. Eminem fans don’t want to admit to this nor look into it, nor does the media, him and Kanye are safe bets they can throw on the thrown. Eminem was named King Of Hip-Hop in Rolling Stone, I’m sure this is upsetting to a lot of rappers. Nas has a big catalog of topical songs which had great meaning, and Kanye and Eminem will always overshadow him and other real artists. Kanye is solely self-centered, bringing out more of it in this album, while Eminem is as well, always about his problems and family problems, homophobia, perverted grade school anecdotes, drugs. They have had great marketing, and they have talented delivery and flow, but they are grossly overrated and acceptable to a wider audience of pop fans. I don’t understand hip hop heads, metal fans would never allow a Linkin Park or Slipknot to all of a sudden overshadow a group like Slayer and say Limp Biscuit now owns the thrown of metal and point out their sales over Black Sabbath. Hip hop allowed the casual fan and sheep media to play it safe and put pop stars in the forefront as the greatest and bury genuine legends. I’m amazed how many people claiming to love rap don’t even know artists from ten years ago. This album is shitty, Eminems album was shitty, they are average artists with nice mic and magic skills, and I guess kudos to them for their great acts, and why shouldn’t they reap the rewards, I probably would too if people wanted to make me king of anything. Another predictable review pandering to the younger, less educated masses, and mediocrity.

  • Shipp_TN

    Far as originality, Stankonia and Donuts are way more experimental. As far as duet albums, I’d say Distant Relatives (Nas & Damien Marley) and Gnarls Barkley (Cee-Lo & Danger Mouse) really reached for something new, fresh and different as compared to their solo work. The beats and cohesiveness make this a very good listen from beginning to end (I was surprised Kanye let someone else make beats/ he maybe learning some humility). Rhymes, I thought Kanye really lifted his lyrically game and to be honest, I really thought he stole the show more than a few times (Church of the wild, Who gone stop me and Niggas in Paris). I did, kind of, get the “get rich like us” message, but with so much going on in the world, for two of the more worldly MC’s, I thought it was over all kind of hollow. With the status both these men have, I was expecting more risks to be taken, a stronger statement made or getting a little more personal. “I want my son to have an easy life/not like Yeezy life”, please, do tell the strife in your life, fuck a thousand dollar tee shirt. I know “Niggas hate ballers these days”, I’m not a hater, shit I downloaded and bought it. Is it wrong to ask two of the greatest musicians this world has seen to dig a little deeper, and take us somewhere we’ve never been before, or a least don’t visit often? Is it a classic? Let’s ask that question a year from now. Is it an outstanding hip hop album? IMO, absolutely. BTW, Frank Ocean bodied his two shots. Just wanted to give him a shout out.

  • DICE

    real talk this album sucks! you guys are dick ridaz first of all its not better than the blueprint3 or my dark twisted fantasy your just in love with the names admit it.

  • AbelCaine

    i thought the album would have been better. it’s not crap but its not a classic. jay & nas should make an album and have kanye,premo & rza do the beats. is kanye a racist? over here in england nobody is sure.maybe you lot in the states know something we don’t.

  • AbelCaine

    and kanye is an ok mc not good enough to do an album with jay,& jay is not even a top 5 mc maybe top 10.west needs to step his game up

    BEST ALBUM LAST FEW YEARS!!!

    Other than lift off,illest mfer alive the album can be played all the way through.No cheap love songs just for airplay,no forced club songs though niggas in paris is a club banger.No weak ass production.

    The content in murder to excellence is so deep.Made in america/why i love you/new day….

    The word play in niggas in paris/otis/who gonna stop me,what you need is crazy.

    The lyrics in Ham/joy/why i love you/primetime is crazy

    The production throughout the album is crazy.Mixing opera with hip hop H.A.M,the samples,the presence on it…CRAZY.The only reason it could be better is it’s too short and adding jay electronica on who gonna stop me would have been nuts. J cole on that’s my bitch would have made that crack,and common on made in america would have made that outrageous. Best album of the year.

  • Breezy E tha Ghee

    ONE WORD – WEAK. THE BEATS WERE OVER-PRODUCED AND STRAIGHT UP WEIRD AS F*CK. THE RHYMES WERE ALL OVER THE PLACE IN EVERY SONG. THESE N*GGAS SUPPOSE TO BE SOME OF THE BEST BUT COULDN’T EVEN STAY ON TOPIC IN A SINGLE SONG. ALL THESE N*GGAS RAPPED ABOUT WAS HOW MUCH MONEY THEY GOT AND THE SH*T THAT THEY BLOW THE MONEY ON. THERE’S NO WAY ANY OF US COULD OF RELATED TO THIS UNLESS WE WERE MILLIONAIRES. MUTHAF*CKAS TALKING ABOUT “YOU HAVE TO DIG TO FIND THE TREASURE” IN THESE SONGS. I SAY F*CK DIGGIN’ TO FIND THE TREASURE!! I WANT MY SH*T LAID OUT FOR ME. AND FOR THE RECORD – JAY-Z IS NOT ONE OF THE GREATEST RAPPERS IN MY BOOK. N*GGAS JUST RESPECT HIM CAUSE HE RICH. F*CKIN D*CK RIDERS. IF HE HAD OF JUST STARTED RAPPING AFTER 2008, YOU N*GGAS WOULD AGREE. REAL RECOGNIZE REAL. WACK ASS ALBUM LIKE I SAID. AND F*CKIN WEIRD TOO. GAME’S ALBUM WAS BETTER THAN THIS. THA CARTER IV WAS BETTER THAN THIS, AND J.COLE : SIDELINE STORY WILL BE BETTER THAN THIS AND ALL OF THE ALBUMS THAT DROPPED THIS YEAR. NO DISS JUST KEEPING IT REAL. 1 STAR ALBUM. MAYBE 2 FOR EFFORT.

    • thedeathofu

Jay Z’s ass was supposed to be retired, but he decided to put this shit out to make some more money. Kanye decent flow no bars, Jay-Z has no rhythm and decent bars. This album was way overhyped and desereves little to no attention. Jay Z is awful, he needs to get his ass off of the WASHED UP THRONE!!!!!!!!!!

    How do you give the “Lyrics” a 4 thats what I want to know. I haven’t heard lyrics this deep and entendre’s stacked on one another like this from any album from any artist EVER. Good review apart from the rating. And personally I love Lift Off, but I also enjoy the styles of Drake and The Weeknd so thats a personal opinion.

    You just gave “Self Made 2″ the same rating haha.
