Jay-Z and Kanye West’s joint album due to be released on August 2?

'Watch The Throne' LP was made available to pre-order earlier this week (July 4)

Jay-Z and Kanye West‘s joint album ‘Watch The Throne’ will be released on August 2, receipts from pre-orders for the LP appear to have revealed.

According to MTV News, the receipts list 2011-08-02 as the shipping date for the much-delayed record, although no release date has been officially confirmed.

Both Jay-Z‘s Life And Times site and Watchthethrone began offering the album as a pre-order, in two different versions, earlier this week (July 4).

Rapper Big Sean also offered an insight into the making of the album, claiming that it’s got some “good-ass songs on there”.

Although the Detroit hip-hop star says he was present during the recording of the album, he confirmed that he didn’t land a guest spot on it.

“No, I didn’t make it,” he said. “I don’t know if they want me to give away any of the titles, but you’ll hear it. You’ll know what I’m talking about. Just even the intro is like, damn!”

Earlier this week, the rap duo revealed the artwork for the LP, which was designed by Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci.

Production credits on the album name West, Jay-Z, Swizz Beatz, No ID and Lex Luger as all having a hand in the album.

Beyonce is also listed as contributing guest vocals on a song called ‘Lift Off’ along with Bruno Mars.

Other reported song titles include ‘Murder To Excellence’, ‘Illest Motherfucker Alive’ and ‘Living So Italian’.
