Just before the stroke of midnight on Thursday night, Kanye West tweeted a picture of what is surely art (if not the cover) to be included in his anticipated collaborative album with Jay-Z, “Watch The Throne.”
Yeezy made the surprising (and ambitious) announcement at his New Year’s Eve bash that the album would be released in one week. Well here we are almost a full week from that announcement and Kanye is making sure his word is kept!
The tweet explicitly suggests 1-11-11 as the drop date – which is a little more than a week, but we won’t hold that against ‘Ye and Hov.
The discussion on Twitter now surrounds what the letters H.A.M stand for. Someone’s early guess: Hot Ass Mess.
That can’t be right.
I mean honestly… This joint has no choice but to be incredibly magnificent or absolutely horrid. I’m imagining it to be Hip-Hop’s version of what would’ve happened had Prince & Michael Jackson done a project together.
