Kanye West has teased the sequel to Watch the Throne, his 2011 collaboration with JAY-Z. “[T]hrone2 coming soon,” he tweeted. In 2016, Kanye claimed that “there will never be a Watch the Throne 2” while on tour behind The Life of Pablo, blaming the ongoing issuesbetween JAY’s Tidal and Apple Music. Pitchfork has reached out to JAY-Z and Kayne’s representatives for further information.
Kanye and JAY have had a contentious relationship in recent years. In 2016, Kanye went on a rant on tour where he called out JAY-Z and Beyoncé for not taking his calls. A year later, JAY addressed their ongoing feud and possible Kanye diss on his record 4:44. On Pusha-T’s Kanye-produced Daytona—which arrived with a handful of other Kanye-produced records this summer—JAY-Z is credited as a composer and lyricist for the track “The Games We Play” and “Infrared.” Their last collaboration was on Drake’s 2016 track “Pop Style.”
