As we told you last week, the official release date of the Watch The Throne collaboration LP by Kanye West and Jay Z might be pushed back. Today it was announced the set will be released on August 8 on iTunes, instead of August 2nd. It now makes sense that the super secret listening party for 'The Throne' will be held on August 1st at an undisclosed location.

Of course, yours truly was invited to attend the private listening session by our friends at Def Jam. We were assured that both Hip Hop Kings, Kanye West and Jay Z, would be in attendance (we really want to meet Kanye!).

When we asked (twice) if any other bloggers would be attending the private listening session, we received no response. So it is assumed that other bloggers are invited, and they just don't want to reveal who. (Not that it matters.)

In addition to the release date, a tour was also announced to support the much-anticipated project, which Def Jam execs are already calling a classic. The 21-city 'Throne Tour' kicks off in Detroit, Michigan on September 22, 2011, with a stop in Atlanta on October 9 at the Philips Arena.

Watch The Throne is available for pre-order at Watchthethrone.com.

    I love Jay and Ye so I will be at that Dallas show. One of the few east coast artists i will listen to. I perfer my rap southern like me

  • FoxE

    I will be at the Detroit show!

    :think: I wonder will either one of them do an after party?
    Matter fact I wonder if they'll even go to any of the radio stations to do an interview?

  • Anna

    That's a lot of tour dates. Can Kryne stay civil, and not throw a tantrum for that long?

  • mrsloveleigh

    I don't think Jay has done radio any of the times he was in Dallas. I've seen him a few times but this will be my first time seeing Ye

  • KDub

    *Whispers*

    MrsLoveleigh...is that Kim Porter's daddy in your gravi? Cause we always said she look just like the man who play the bass in the kona of the stage for the past 30 years for Earth Wind and Fiyah...Mr. White...

  • http://youtu.be/8A2Mfu0Yc5Q chibytex

    I wanna see them when they come to the Chi.... I gotta talk to the hubby about this.... :pray: that Beyonce makes an appearance....

  • Crickett

    I like JayZ and Kanye but I'm not interested in hearing brag about their grandiose lifestyle, I hope that do more than tease us about their icecream (Eddie Murphy).

  • candibfly

    i don't really care but my bf loves kanye so i might be forced to go, especially since they have a stop in dc and not nyc

  • FoxE

  • mrsloveleigh

    @ Tatted is that MAC eyeshadow in your gravi> I finally bought me a MAC compact after wanting to for years and I lost it not even 2 weeks later! Talking pissed!!! I haven't been able to bring myself to buy a new one. But with my summer tan i hardly need make-up. Winter i will have one

    :no:

    It's BH cosmetics. You may wanna give them a try BEFORE you go back to MAC! I use to wear MAC eyeshadow but after I was turned on to this, I have bought anymore. I do however still rock the lip glass, mineral powder, etc. etc. Go to BH cosmetic (dot) com. They are the TRUTH! :yes:

    @ FoxE
    Kellz showed his azz on that tour, I went to the Mem show he was late, when he got 2 St. Louis he jumped off the stage saying the lighting guy was threatening him,, after that I think Jay continued & had others fill in, J sd RK was unprofessional & was making them both look bad

    Why thank ya!

    Anita is the ultimate. :bow:
    Loves her! She alone makes me proud of what Detroit once was musically during the late 80's and 90's.

    And WHHHYYYY can I see Viola scrubbin' and cookin', sweatin' and greasy, googly eyeing those women with disgust already? She was a good fit for that roll.

And We're probably night and day lol but I definitely hold it down, I don't think we play for the same team, nonetheless, what does that have to do with the price of tea in China, right? I'm still fly ;-) lol
