From the junk drawer. In early 2010 I had the idea to do whole album of Disney mashups; this was as far as I got. D/L here.
Oh my. Listen up folks.
First Listen: Jay-Z & Kanye West - “Lift Off” Ft. Beyonce from ‘Watch The Throne’ (via DatHeatRock)
The album dropped today and surprisingly did not leak before release. Unheard of.
Definitely fake, but no less mesmerizing.
There are six days left until Watch The Throne premieres digitally, ten days left until physical copies hit shelves, and still, miraculously, the album hasn’t leaked. With tour dates now announced and an official tracklist locked down, Kanye and Jay hosted an invite-only listening session at the Museum of Natural History last night to play the 12 finalized tracks in full.
Most attendees would agree that the 6pm sharp arrival time seemed a bit excessive, with only four or five people being let in at a time. Phones were confiscated at the door and ticketed in ziploc bags, which meant that guests enjoying the top shelf open bar were forced to talk rather of tweet and exchange info manually.
Among the media types and the model types there were also rapper types, like Pusha T, who we spotted as he made his way upstairs around 7:30pm for the first listening session. We followed the red trail of his Louboutin sneakers and found Kanye West, smiling from ear-to-ear, at the top of the landing, greeting guests and leading the way to the Hayden Planetarium. At first no clear seating instructions were given, so listeners shuffled to their seats while guests like A-Trak, Q-Tip, Grizzly Bear, Busta Rhymes, and Warner CEO Lyor Cohen filed in. Kanye, still smiling, greeted familiar faces in the crowd with firm handshakes, then Jay-Z rolled in with Beyonce on his arm, and Kelly Rowland and Solange not far behind.
