Jay Z and Kanye West Bring The Throne to SXSW

Jay Z and Kanye West

Jay Z and Kanye West brought their “Watch the Throne” tour back to life for one night only at Austin Music Hall during SXSW on Wednesday. The rap titans headlined an exclusive concert presented by Samsung for a crowd of 4,600 tastemakers and fans, who downloaded the Milk Music app on their Galaxy devices.

Perched atop two towering mini-stages, they kicked things off with “H.A.M.” before launching into their arsenal of Watch the Throne cuts including “Otis” and “Welcome to the Jungle,” plus their verses from Beyoncé’s “Drunk in Love (Remix).”

In addition to their collaborations, each performed material off their latest albums. ‘Ye ran through his Yeezus singles “Black Skinhead” and “New Slaves,” while Jay Z showcased “Tom Ford” and “Fu*kWithMeYouKnowIGotIt” off Magna Carta…Holy Grail.

After taking their solo turns, they came together once more for the grand finale of “No Church in the World” and “Ni**as in Paris.”

    If you believe they are pulling crowds like that, you must have a empty hole where your brain should be. People who really pull crowds arent hyping and advertising every 5 minutes.
