The Jay-Z/Kanye West collabo album “Watch The Throne” is a reality. The heavily anticipated album was released at midnight and it was the first time anyone heard it, as “Watch The Throne” did not leak as promised!
HelloBeautiful’s co-founder Ava Duvernay was so inspired by “Watch The Throne” she labeled it a “militant masterpiece:”
I’m absolutely not a music critic. Absolutely not. I’m a film person who loves music. I’ve directed four music docs, two about hip hop. Still I have no real appropriate skills for what I’m about to do, which is write about an album. With that said, I’m inspired by this beautiful thing entitled Watch the Throne and I must jot something down. However amateur.
It’s past 1 a.m. and I’ve now listened to Watch the Throne four full times, with very necessary repeats of my new personal anthem “Murder to Excellence.” Actually, “listened” might not be the right word. Bumped. Bumped is a word that’ll be appreciated by patrons of the new Huffington Post Black Voices, right? We can speak freely here, right?
