Kanye West is reportedly in Shoreditch, London this afternoon (February 9) to attend a Watch The Throne video premiere.

Representatives for the hip-hop star have distributed an image of a street map of the east London location and have hinted that the unspecified event will start at 5pm.

The rapper is thought to be planning on being at the Village Underground venue to oversee the screening of the video for the track 'Niggas In Paris', which is taken from his and Jay-Z's collaborative album, while other reports suggest that the video will be screened on a wall in Shoreditch in guerilla-like fashion.

In December last year, a Watch The Throne concert descended into chaos when West threatened to have a whole section of the crowd in Tacoma, Washington thrown out after one audience member threw a number of business cards onto the stage.

The rapper claimed that the cards were dangerous considering his and Jay-Z's elaborate stage set, stating: "These cubes go 20 feet in the air, fam. We risking our lives up here, you can't go throwing shit that we gonna slip on."

Jay-Z, meanwhile, has gone on record confirming that the rappers could release another joint album together this year, claiming that he and West were "in a great place creatively" and had "found our zone".
