Jay-Z and Kanye West Are Calling Themselves The Throne, Performing in East Rutherford, NJ Twice

the throne

Billboard is reporting that Jay-Z and Kanye West have re-dubbed themselves The Throne, clarifying for anyone still unsure who exactly they’re supposed to be watching when the duo’s collaborative album comes out August 8th. About a month after that, The Throne will take Watch the Throne on tour with what they’re calling the Watch the Throne Tour, performing 24 shows across the country from September 22nd to November 3rd. Presumably it’s going to be completely insane—Jay in a gold crown, Kanye wearing only a blended rabbit-seal fur coat and a bandanna, both men replacing onstage banter with readings from Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and Q&A sessions with easy-to-follow investment advice. Here’s hoping Frank Ocean—who appears twice as much on the album as Beyonce—gets to tag along.

    you know, if u really are the king you don’t need to talk about how yr sitting on the throne. and u say things like “u the fuck is frank ocean?”, rather than desperately trying to stay relevant by putting him all over yr record. and u definitely dont sit around posting comments on blogs
