Kanye West & Jay Z
No surprises, no anxious searches and no false alarms: today is 11th January and “H.A.M.” is in our lives, just as Kanye West tweeted. The first trustworthy sign of “Watch The Throne” –from Jay-Z and Kanye, those two aces, working together– appeared on the wall of the project’s Facebook page along with artwork by Riccardo Tisci, creative director of Givenchy and one of Kanye West and Jay-Z’s designers of choice. Like the man himself had already said, Lex Luger is responsible for the operatic inspiration, the apocalyptic atmosphere and the abundance of drums on “H.A.M.” Whether there are going to be more previews of “Watch The Throne” before its official release on Def Jam on 1st March, is as yet unknown – we’ll have to keep an eye on ‘Ye’s Twitter page. Listen to the track here.
