‘Watch The Throne’ In Europe

Kanye West and Jay-Z’s co-headline tour “Watch The Throne” is headed overseas for a European excursion that begins in May. 

The rappers are touring in support of their collaborative studio effort, Watch The Throne. The album, which debuted at No. 1, was released last August by Roc-A-Fella Records and Def Jam Recordings. Watch The Throne picked up Grammy nominations for best rap album and best recording package. The single “Otis” won best rap performance in addition to being nominated for best rap song.
