Kanye may have failed to deliver on his promise to kick off G.O.O.D. Friday today with the release of a freebie from his musical family, but he shared something even better. The Chi-town native took to his Twitter account to announce the upcoming release of a 5-track album recorded with Jay-Z called Watch the Throne.
“Me and jay bout to drop a 5 song album called ‘Watch the Throne,'” the MC tweeted.
Though it’s currently unknown when the collection of tracks will see the light of day, the pair have recently collaborated on a remix to “POWER,” which could potentially end up counting as one of the five joints that make the final cut.
Kanye is currently working on his currently untitled fifth album. The LP, which was previously called Good Ass Job and Dark Twisted Fantasy, is said to feature production from Pete Rock, Q-Tip, Madlib, DJ Toomp, RZA and Swizz Beatz, who helmed the remix to “POWER.” Additional guest appearances are said to be Pusha T, Rick Ross, Beyoncé, Big Sean, Kid Cudi, Mos Def, and Nicki Minaj.
