Kanye West at Brooklyn Hip Hop Fest 2011 (more by Brook Bobbins)
Kanye West

Jay-Z and Kanye West will proclaim that all sucka MCs need to Watch The Throne, when the pair release their collaborative LP on August 8th. Stream the first track "Otis" at Jay-Z's blog. The LP marks Jay-Z's third attempt at merging with a major star to form another supercrew. He released an EP with Linkin Park and two LPs as part of "The Best of Both Worlds", his collaboration with R.Kelly that in addition to the LPs, produced a much discussed, failed tour.

In addition, and much like The Best of Both Worlds, Jigga and Ye will hit the road together for a string of US dates kicking off in late Septemeber and coming to a close in November. The tour includes a pair of dates at Izod Center in East Rutherford on 9/27 and 9/28. Ticketing info is forthcoming, but presale passwords are set to be revealed on Thursday at midnight.

Check out the album art and tracklisting (two songs with Odd Future associate Frank Ocean included), alongside all tour dates, below...

Damn, are they ever going to do shows at the Garden again? I know they are closed this summer for remodeling and whatnot but they've got to open soon for the NHL and whatnot.

Man I love countdowns... Cant wait for that pswrd ;)

I can't wait to spend $500 a ticket to see this overblown spectacular.

Posted by Anonymous | July 25, 2011 10:00 AM

Who in their right mind would spend a penny in watching these overblown ego's on stage?

Kanye is a spoiled little bitch who I can't stand. Jay-Z was relevant when he rapped about his life in the Canarsie Projects. Him rapping about his life owning Vodka companies, hanging out with Richard Branson on his own Island and banging Beyonce; not so relevant now big guy...

So, my wife is a chef and I'm seriously food-challenged and she makes fun of me because I didn't know what things like avocados and scallions were but the other day the subject of hummus came up and I said I'd never tried it and she was like 'Oh you don't even know what it is' and I shot back CHICKPEAS! She was very impressed. This website is very educational.

I would go if they played some of this collaborative cd along with solo sets by both artists....

but I feel like this will just be collaborative set with maybe 5 extra songs by either artists.

Posted by Anonymous | July 25, 2011 10:12 AM

They are going to put on a rockin' show!

Posted by Kevin | July 25, 2011 10:18 AM

Is this the first time they've ever collaborated together?

Posted by Kevin | July 25, 2011 10:19 AM

10:09 that was good. Here's to the new 7.5 comment.

@10:04, leave the hip-hop history to the professionals if you don't know your facts. marcy, son. marcy. not canarsie.

This will be so good!

They can suck my left nut. And the right one, too. The tickets are going to be wayyy too expensive for this, and morons are actually going to pay hundreds of dollars per ticket to see them verbally fellate themselves on stage for 2 hours.

Posted by Anonymous | July 25, 2011 10:29 AM

4 bonus tracks? not real tracks?

Posted by Anonymous | July 25, 2011 10:29 AM

lol @ 10:19. so cute.

Posted by Anonymous | July 25, 2011 10:30 AM

Seriously, Canarsie?
Speaking of irrelevant, your comment...

Also, if you've seen anything of either artist's marathon live sets in recent years, you can absolutely bet that these shows will go far beyond the collab material.

If there was ever a polar opposite of a Fugazi tour......

I'd rather pay $20 to see KRS-ONE rip shit up in a small club.

I saw Kanye 3 years ago. It was the most ridiculous, corny, almost laughable production I ever saw. It had this "lost in space" theme. Kanye alone in space with a female-voiced captain. When the captain says to Kanye "We need the brightest star in the universe — you, Kanye! Only you can bring us home. You can glow in the dark!", I spit out my beer from laughing.

10:34 re: Fugazi. Yeah, it's funny how everyone on BV is totally against rock bands that feed the corporate music machine, but it's ok when it happens in hiphop.

Posted by Anonymous | July 25, 2011 10:43 AM

will they rap about how they're the greatest MCs of all time? will there be a 30 member posse on stage contributing random "uh huhs!" in long white tshirts and multi-colored boxers? is raising the roof still in?

This Is Not A Jay-Z & Kanye T-Shirt

wait, 10:40 did that really happen?!?! I figured his shows are overblown, but surely that story can't be for real.

Posted by Anonymous | July 25, 2011 10:58 AM

808s and HOVApriced tickets

Posted by Anonymous | July 25, 2011 11:06 AM

10:58, yes that really happened. Go to Google and put in "Kanye brightest star in the universe"

i'd go just to people watch the blipsters

Posted by Anonymous | July 25, 2011 12:38 PM

What blipsters? It's going to be 14 year old girls and their parents, and wall street jerkoffs who can afford $750 a ticket.

9:54 & 10:24, they'll probably end this tour leg at MSG, but they'll wait until NJ sells out before they announce it.

Posted by Anonymous | July 25, 2011 1:17 PM

soo...sept 26th @ MSG or november 2nd? which will it be?

2:35 - I doubht Sept 26. Too many shows in a row. Probably after November 3rd.

"If there was ever a polar opposite of a Fugazi tour......"

this made me lol

"10:34 re: Fugazi. Yeah, it's funny how everyone on BV is totally against rock bands that feed the corporate music machine, but it's ok when it happens in hiphop."

it's because many white people have this patriarchal/patronizing attitude towards black people and don't hold them to the same standards. they might not think they're racist but when they forgive black 'artists' like odd future for being ignorant idiots but wouldn't do the same with whites they are perpetuating an attitude that blacks are not intellectually capable of being held to the same standard as white artists. this is obviously untrue (just listen to saul williams..) but it seems to constantly appear in the coverage of black artists on indie blogs such as BV and p4k.

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2011 4:49 AM

^critics give white and black artists a pass when it comes to their politics. a white indie rock band indulges in "introspection," a black rapper is obsessed with wealth and status. both are diversions from political engagement. it's essentially the same standard: "we're not asking you to think"

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2011 8:54 AM

Wow! all this time I thought Jay-z would have stop rapping, but I guess he needs to prove himself again. No disrespect to Jay-z or his fans, but I personally think it's an ego thing. He doesn't want to be forgotten.

Posted by Vsmoove | July 27, 2011 2:02 AM

4:49 - It could also be that mainstream hiphop is still producing music that is artistically relevant, while mainstream rock is producing Nickelback and rehashing Bon Jovi.

Posted by Anonymous | July 27, 2011 8:33 AM

Hey Kevin. Did you end up going to see 'em in concert?
