This isn’t the first time we have been promised a sequel to their gargantuan 2011 album, yet a very public feud between the rappers has long threatened the possibility of a follow-up.
In 2016, Kanye stopped a performance on his Saint Pablo tour to dismiss any chance of collaborating with Jay-Z again, citing “political shit” with Tidal, the streaming service co-owned by Jay.
“There will never be a Watch the Throne 2. You know why? Because that’s the reason why I wasn’t on the song. I wasn’t on the song ’cause of Hov, ’cause of this Tidal, Apple, bullshit.”
In August, ‘Watch the Throne’ briefly returned to Spotify after being pulled off the streaming service in 2017. It was swiftly removed much to fan’s dismay.
Yet there have been positive signs that the two rappers are making up, Jay-Z is credited as lyricist for tracks on the Kanye-produced album ‘Daytona’.
Still, let’s wait for confirmation from Hov before getting too excited.
It has been a busy few weeks for Ye, not only was he pictured in the studio working on a joint album with Chance the Rapper, Kanye also pulled off the inaugural Pornhub Awards as creative director, debuting his new track ‘I Love It’ with Lil Pump during the ceremony.
