Watch The Throne‘ avrà un seguito. Le due icone del rap mondiale Jay-Z e Kanye West hanno infatti in progetto un secondo album di collaborazione dopo quello uscito la scorsa estate. A confermare l’atteso ritorno del duo, attualmente in Europa per il tour promozionale, è il produttore Mike Dean: ‘Sto lavorando al nuovo album di West, ‘G.O.O.D. Music e a ‘Watch The Throne 2′ – ha dichiarato in un’intervista, un progetto non ancora iniziato, ma che sicuramente arriverà’.

Vengono quindi confermati i rumors già circolati a fine 2011, diffusi dopo una dichiarazione rilasciata dallo stesso Jay-Z a MTV News. Le star del rap hanno appena concluso cinque serate alla O2 Arena di Londra per il loro attesissimo ‘Watch The Throne’ tour .

L’11 e il 12 giugno saranno a Manchester, il 13 e il 22 a Birmingham e il 21 a Sheffield. Ma i due rapper si esibiranno anche in Francia, Germania, Olanda, Svezia, Irlanda, Norvegia, Belgio e Danimarca.

Nei giorni scorsi Kanye West ha anche debuttato al Festival di Cannes in un cortometraggio sperimentale basato sul suo album ‘Cruel Summer‘.
