Watch The Throne finally dropped and has the Web on fire with approval. Kanye West and Jay-Z have kept a tight lid on their “collab-album,” avoiding the early leaks that plague most top tier releases. The two have collaborated before, of course. Kanye produced for Jay-Z’s label Roc-A-Fella for several years before diving into the rap game and rising to fame, earning 14 Grammy Awards, besting Jay-Z by one.
Kanye continues to rise above his awkward moments, including interrupting Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, an upstaging that didn’t seem to bother his fans or threaten Jay-Z.
