Watch The Throne - JAY-Z & Kanye West
Watch The Throne

Watch The Throne is the debut studio album by longtime partners/friends and label-mates, JAY Z & Kanye West, also known and commonly referred to as The Throne. The album initially began as a 5-song EP, but it eventually morphed into a full-length project. The Watch The Throne tour became the most lucrative hip-hop tour in history. Production credits included Swizz Beatz, 88-Keys, RZA, Mike Dean, No I.D. and more. “Otis,” one of the album’s biggest tracks, was produced after No I.D. challenged Kanye to produce a song on the spot. Said No I.D. in an interview with XXL: I get the co-productions, but how you gon do an album and you don’t go to the machine and do one beat by yourself? Yeezy accepted the challenge and chopped up Otis Redding’s “Try A Little Tenderness” on the spot. “Otis” was added at the last minute and went on to win the Grammy for Best Rap Performance.
