After a few set backs and delays, Jay-Z and Kanye West’s highly anticipated collaborative LP Watch The Throne is now available on iTunes. The physical CD won’t hit retail until August 12. The disc has collaborations from Beyoncé, Frank Ocean, Otis Redding, Mr. Hudson and Curtis Mayfield.
Above is a Hip-Hop Review I wrote about Watch The Throne for Spring Creek Sun newspaper in Brooklyn, NY. Below is the actual album packaging for Watch The Throne. Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci designed the album’s intricate gold cover and artwork. The cover incorporates “symmetry, lightness, strength, darkness, sharpness and 3D,” Givenchy explains in a statement.
