Jay Z & Kanye West - Watch the Throne release date revealed and new track Otis goes viral

by Matt Barden. Published Thu 21 Jul 2011 15:07, last updated: 25/07/11

The wait is nearly over. Watch the Throne will be released digitally on August 1 and physically on August 5.

The joint LP tracklist has already been released, featuring cuts with Frank Ocean, Beyonce and Mr Hudson.

Otis, a track sampling the legendary Otis Redding was unleasehed by the super-duo and can be streamed at http://lifeandtimes.com/otis.

The track sees Hova and Kan-yeezy passing the mic back and forth while the American soul singer croons the chorus.

The two show the pretenders how to make a braggin' hip-hop song, none of this 'I got so many clothes/I keep some at my aunts house' bull.

They keep the lyrics and flow tight and intelligent, with Mr carter spitting, 'Flee in the G450 I might surface/Political refugee asylum can be purchased/Uh, everythings for sale, I got 5 passports/I’m never going to jail'.

Kanye keeps pace with his mentor, dropping, 'I made Jesus walks so never going to hell/Couture level flow is never going on sale/Luxury rap, the Hermes of verses/Sophisticated ignorance/Write my curses in cursive'.

If the rest of the album lives up to this track it's going to kill this summer...
