Jay-Z and Kanye West's joint album 'Watch The Throne' is nearly complete, according to a producer who's working on it.

Producer and engineer Young Guru told Vibe.com that the album now only needs a few "tweaks".

"Right now, I’m really trying to get Jay and Kanye to hurry up and finish this 'Watch The Throne' album because the world needs to hear it," he said.

He added: "It just needs little tweaks and things like that. But the core of the album is finished."

He also explained that No I.D., Q-Tip and Pete Rock had made beats for the project.

"Kanye takes what they do and adds on to it and I think that’s his genius," he said. "I say this all the time; Kanye records are never the same twice, while he's making them because they always grow."

West previously said he hoped the album would be available at the start of January 2011 after the single 'H.A.M.' was made available online.

No release date for the album has been announced yet.
