After the announcement of a collaboration between two of, arguably, the best MC’s alive, Jay-Z and Kanye West…fans were nearly foaming at the mouth in anticipation. That one single leaked…you remember. “I’m about to go H.A.M./hard as a *#&^@!*$#@…” and then…nothing. The project was considered to be some mythical maybe. But then, a glimmer of hope.
As urban legend suggests, while Jay’s working on a project he’ll let his hair grow wild and free until that project is completed. When we saw him step out with a fresh Caesar a few weeks ago, after months of rocking a thick ‘fro, we knew something was afoot. Now, seemingly out of nowhere (in other words, with no real promotion) Def Jam’s put the project up for pre-sale online, complete with cover art, and an August 2nd release date. If this all goes off without another pushback…we could all have our eyes peeled to the royal seat at the top of next month. Until then…we’re chilling in the throne room, preparing to soak up the opulence.
