On the second track to drop from this collaboration between Kanye West and Jay-Z, we get an Otis Redding sample, an answer as to who invented swag, and a whole lotta hot air. Sure, Kanye West and Jay-Z are notorious for their bragging skills. But when they're together, those muscles get flexed harder and harder with every verse about luxury vacations and cars.
If painting themselves into this corner is going to be the only thing this collaboration offers, I'm not sure I'm going to be into the entire album, honestly. Will Watch the Throne be a little more dimensional?
What do you think of this track? Love it? Hate it? Why? Are you looking forward to Watch the Throne? What do you think the other tracks will have to offer?
