    i personally think you can drop without a single and ppl will love it…i would like it just for the fact that you are forced to listen to the album as a whole with no pre album assumptions..GENIUS!!!

    and fuck it…take this illuminati shit and ride it out….Success is always blamed on everything but hard work…ppl are just putting their energy towards negativity and that comes with no results.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001355836744 Brent Scharber

    I believe it says shipping 12-31-11 b/c they weren’t sure of when the release date even though it said 8-2-11. Jay was saying nothing was set in stone at the listening session last week. But now that the track list is official I can’t wait to see that link to download on 8-2. lol

    Beautiful execution of marketing, and building hype. The uncertainty of not knowing when it will drop is excellent. Push it back HOV, let’em wait, the streets are talking and the hype is just beginning to snowball, I’m certain you can break 1.5 million sales in the first week. This is the strategy Julius Cesar used to claim Rome and the one Alexander The Great used to build his empire. NewOrleansTalentProductions@yahoo.com

    we get it, album drops soon. lets get back to some some real l+t shit, ya?

  • Anonymous

    @clobberbop, I agree wholeheartedly! I understand having this ad up for a few days, but this is ridiculous. I check L+T regularly in hopes of seeing some more awesome content, but apparently you guys care more about plugging the new album (however dope it may be) than publishing legitimate articles. My patience is wearing thin, you guys might soon lose an avid reader. Good to know I’m not alone…

    @PATTICHICK AND @CLOBBERSTOP i agree too. its getting ridiculous. post new material about the album, or post more articles

    Nice. I think that “OTIS” was the appropriate record to introduce WATCH THE THRONE. This record put the focus on the lyricism in the song. Well done Jay + Ye!

    DECODING “OTIS”

    HOVA
    Sounds so soulful don’t you agree
    I invented swag
    Poppin bottles putting supermodels in the cab
    Proof
    I guess I got my swagger back
    Truth: new watch alert, Hublot’s
    Or the big face Rollie I got two of those
    Arm out the window through the city I maneuver slow
    Cock back, snap back
    See my cut through the holes

    Kanye
    Damn Yeezy and Hov,
    Where the hell ya been?
    Niggas talkin real reckless: stuntman
    I adopted these niggas, Phillip Drummond them
    Now I’m bout to make them tuck they whole summer in
    They say I’m crazy but I’m ’bout to go dumb again
    They aint see me cause I pulled up in my other Benz
    Last week I was in my other other Benz
    Throw your diamonds up cause we in this bitch and up again

    HOVA
    Photo shoot fresh
    Looking like wealth
    I’m about to call the paparazzi on myself
    Uh, live form the Mercer, run up on Yeezy the wrong way
    I might murk ya
    Flee in the G450 I might surface
    Political refugee asylum can be purchased
    Uh, everythings for sale, I got 5 passports
    I’m never going to jail

    Kanye
    I made Jesus walks so never going to hell
    Couture level flow is never going on sale
    Luxury rap, the Hermes of verses
    Sophisticated ignorance
    Write my curses in cursive
    I get it custom
    You a customer
    You aint accustomed to going through customs
    You aint been nowhere huh?
    And all the ladies in the house got them showing off
    I’m done I hit ya up, manna!

    HOVA

    Welcome to Havanna
    Smoking Cubana’s with Castro in Cabana’s
    Viva Mexico, Cubana, Dominicano
    All the plugs that I know
    Driving Benz’s, With no benefits
    Not bad huh? for some immigrants
    Build your fences, we diggin’ tunnels
    Can’t you see we gettin money up under you

    Kanye
    Can’t you see the private jets flying over you
    Maybach bumper sticker read “What would Hova do?”
    Jay is chillin, Ye is chillin
    What more can I say
    We killin’ ‘em
    Hold up before we in this campaign
    As you can see we bodied the damn lames
    Lord please let them accept the things they cant change
    And pray that all of their pain be champagne

    Another Game Changer from HOVA and KANYE

    Just because the sample comes from an incredible song doesn’t automatically make this a good track. The sample is missing a creative touch and seems like it was forced together, making it almost annoying to listen to. The beat ruins the integrity of Otis’s ability to dominate a recording, and it almost makes me feel bad for him knowing that his music is available for people to butcher like this. Your marketing only made it possible for more people to see how awful this really is.

    It’s a good track but it’s mastered too loud and compressed massively. It suffers from the same problems as Mbdtf, the music beyond the excessive compression is no doubt beautiful but you can’t truly hear it properly as it’s just so damn loud. It should be full of dynamics and sound all analogue-y but it’s been compressed to sounding like a ringtone. I bet the unmastered final mix of it in the studio sounds stunning, but when it’s mastered all the same volume depth and 3-dimensionality is impossible. I never understand why people work so hard and spend so long creating music, if they’re going to let somebody use boundless compression in the mastering stage; it’s the equivalent of spending 1000s of hours filming a monumental movie then lowering it to the quality of phone app before release.

    If you are truly a fan of Kanye or Jay-Z–which some of you aren’t because you have nothing else better to do other than to troll–how can you dislike this song? It embodies everything that both artists are: flashy with a classic hip-hop sound, amazing lyricists, and arrogant. And this song has a little bit of everything. Not to mention, ‘Ye and Jigga flow so well together, it’s just not fair. Keep on hating haters, because your opinions won’t matter when this album debuts at #1, is an instant classic, and goes triple platinum.

    @Will Tolley at first I was thinking they where over compressing and distorting Hov’s vocals at a certain point as an artistic method. But as I continued to listen to the track I agree it is overly compressed and lost a lot of what ever depth, imaging, dynamics and analog sound it had in the final mix in the studio when it was Mastered like you indicated. And that should never be the case in the aspect of Mastering. But hey this could just be the rough version they put out for us to get a taste of the track. Or this can just be what the final production is. Guess we have to find out on the release date

    @LifeandTimes

    There is a beat on youtube titled “Thunder” that says it is by Jay-Z & Kanye West. It is said to be made by someone named Jru. I don’t know this person at all. Since the track list was put out already, we knew it was not going to be on the album. However, some people like Macbook 4sale and myself feel that it would be a good beat for Hov & Kanye, and possibly a good beat for the “Watch The Throne” album Obviously it would have to be listened to and revised, but it is a good start to something that I feel can be made into a really great song for Hov & Kanye.

Classic back-n-forth rhyming with a dope sample. No overly loud saw-synthesizer blaring on an overly loud hook… just a dope sample played throughout. This is what Hip Hop sounds like young’nz… you’ve just been conditioned and blinded by commercial cRap radio and “Hip Pop”. Get a clue… lamers!

It is the sickest beat. And please confirm @lifeandtimes that you are Jay-Z so I can faint. -A Fan.

    @LifeandTimes

    Well it’s nice to meet you Hov. You are my favorite artist by the way. When I listened to the “Thunderbeat” it sounded like something that you and Kanye would be perfect on, but like you said maybe next time. I got that “Otis” on repeat. Same with “H.A.M.” Can’t wait to hear the rest of the album. I know it’s going to be a classic for real, cause when put out a track like “Otis” and got everybody rocking, that’s something right there. That album is going be something that you can just put on anytime, and just rock. I mean I still listen to albums like “Ready to Die” & “Reasonable Doubt” like they are new!!! Keep it up man, and I can’t wait to see you and Yeezy at the “Watch The Throne” concert!!!

    I just came too. Its been a good 18 hours! Thanks Jay glad you liked the beat. It feels made for you and ‘ye. But maybe the next album or just a “mix-single”. I know you are Jay-Z so you don’t have to do a mixtape but a mix-single or freestyle over Thunder would be great. Maybe get Flex to set it up next time you are floating around doing interviews. Just throwing out ideas :)

    Also, you’ve been my favorite artist for a while and you’ve had quite the influence. The “I will not lose” anthem has taken me pretty far in life. If you want to know how far you’ll have to send me an email it might surprise you. Thanks again and I’m looking forward to the album.

    @Macbook

    I feel you on that one man. The “I will not lose” anthem, is good to apply to life. Always have that feeling in your heart that you can overcome anything.

    @Lifeandtimes

    I also wanted to say that you have been an influence to me as well. You being in the rap game for so long, putting out so many great records, having all these haters telling you to quit, and you just keep coming, just goes to show how much you love your job. That has taught me that when I get my career going, to keep riding till the wheels fall off. Music is also my passion. I wanna be a producer, just like Kanye, but I wanna do it the classic way. With turntables and vinyls. If it was done before, it can be done again. I wanna bring it back to hip-hop. Again, can’t wait to hear the album.

    Not saying this is better than Otis, but if you enjoy Otis–you should listen to
    N.A.’s “Flying High”
    *soulful samples, lyricism, that classic new york sound*

    Not saying this is better than Otis (cuz Jay is the GOAT) –but if you like Otis, you should check out hip-hop artist N.A.’s new song “Flying High”

    Jigga , I was just about to order my tickets for WTT for the LA show until I saw a $250 half decent seat plus a $22 convenience charge. I’m a huge fan of you and Ye and have always supported your music. But I’m gonna have to pass on this show

    THIS IS MORE POINTLESS < BLOATED < AIN'T SAYIN' NOTHIN < EGOTISTICAL GARBAGE. Basically a rape and pillage of the soul of the man. The lyrics are about nothing besides corny self-obsession. KANYE AND JAY : TIME TO COME BACK TO EARTH, ya'll. YOU ARE BOTH TOO HIGH ON WHAT AMOUNTS TO : A MUTUAL MASTURBATION SOCIETY. Zeros across the board, losers.

    Thank you, and you're welcome

    Take the hate out of here, people. You trail him everywhere just to drop hateful comments. Keep your hateful opinions to yourselves.

    Amazing site nonetheless

    Thanks Jay for the show in Greensboro, NC. My husband & I enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. We both have been fans of your music since the beginning. You give the young and the older fans “Hope”. That is saying a lot in this day and time. I congratulate you on your success and wish you much more.
