The Throne is coming.
According to a new report, Kanye West and JAY-Z will release a sequel to their 2011 collaborative album Watch the Throne by the end of the year. The revelation was made by web personality Justin Laboy, who has been a source on Kanye-related information as of late.
“Watch The Throne 2 coming end of the year. Kanye & Hov about to make history AGAIN,” tweeted Laboy when asked if another Throne album was in the works.
Added Laboy, “YES. HOV & YE back building again. They both rich enough to quit rapping, but the passion they share of making the fans happy got them back working.”
The host of Revolt’s “Respectfully Justin” was among the first to hear DONDA and report the July 23 and Aug. 6 release dates. He has remained close to Kanye’s camp and was seen on the live feed for DONDA from Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Kanye and JAY-Z squashed their beef and reunited on a surprise collaboration off DONDA, which Kanye debuted during his live-streamed listening event. On his verse, JAY-Z reignited talks of a WTT sequel.
“This might be the return of The Throne / Hova and Yeezy like Moses and Jesus,” he raps.
Back in 2018, Kanye teased another Throne album despite his estranged relationship with JAY-Z. Prior to that in 2016, Kanye said that “there will never be a Watch the Throne 2,” revealing that he and JAY didn’t appear on the official version of Drake’s “Pop Style” due to issues between TIDAL and Apple Music.
“There will never be a Watch the Throne 2. You know why? Because that’s the reason why I wasn’t on the song,” he told fans during his “Saint Pablo Tour” in Seattle. “I wasn’t on the song ’cause of Hov, ’cause of this TIDAL, Apple bullshit. And this shit be getting me tight every time I perform this motherfu**er.”
