Apart, they’re two of the biggest hip-hop artists ever. Together, they’re the most ridiculous blowhards ever to join forces. This is a good thing. When two egos as outrageous as this come together, incredible things happen. Think Kanye’s “Coke on her black skin made a stripe like a zebra/
I call that jungle fever”. Think Jay-Z beating down young pretenders on ‘Otis’ (“I invented swag”). The result was epic, and the most enjoyable rap record of 2011. MW
