We told you in August about the plans for a full EP collaboration between [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kanye West[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jay-Z[/lastfm]. Fans went crazy over the idea – so crazy, in fact, that Yeezy is now saying that Watch The Throne will be a full length album!
“We’re putting out a whole album now,” West said after the premiere of “Runaway.” “We had done five [songs] so far and then a few of them kind of were out there,” alluding to the collaborations that ended up going out as G.O.O.D. Friday releases.
“We’re going to the South of France at the end of this month just to record new ideas,” he added. “We’ll probably be done with the album in like a day or whatever. … If you think about it, it’s really easy [for Jay]: He only has to think of, like, 10 verses!”
If all the verses are as strong as these, we’ll be fine:
[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jay-Z[/lastfm] has the release of his greatest hits album and his book, while [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kanye West[/lastfm] has the release of his new solo album. But with them both putting out classic hits even with a packed calendar, is there such a thing as “too much?”
