Jay-Z And Kanye West Release ‘Watch The Throne’ Documentary
It’s been a year since Jay-Z and Kanye West hit us with their ‘Watch the Throne’ album. Now the kings of hip-hop are taking us behind the scenes to give us a rare insight into the whole recording process of the history-making album with an intimate documentary…
The documentary shares rare moments captured on camera, including when Kanye presents Jay-Z with a ring he bought him at a vintage store in Paris. Oscar winner Russell Crowe makes an appearance at the hotel while Kanye raps his verse from “Illest Motherf*****r Alive.” Beyoncé even makes a cameo.
During the powerful documentary, Roc Nation boss Jay-Z reflects on Kanye’s journey from the beginning, cutting to a clip of the end of the 'Through The Wire' video when Kanye announces that he is the newest member of the Roc-A-Fella team, to becoming one of hip-hop’s greatest rappers. “I’m watching a guy who I pretty much mentored become his own guy with his own opinion. It’s fantastic,” he said.
You can watch the pair's previous documentary, which was released after the album, after the jump.
