AllHipHop.com founder and C.E.O. Chuck “Jigsaw” Creekmur was one of the lucky few invited, on Thursday night, to a listening/preview session for the highly anticipated album from Jay-Z and Kanye West, Watch the Throne, which is set to release on August 2nd.
No titles or lyrics were provided, however, Jigsaw managed to write some in-depth information about the content, subject matter, and sound of the songs that were played. Below is a brief description of one of the his favorite tracks:
This song [#7] was my absolute favorite. The beat went super hard with Kanye and Jay asking aggressively, “Who gon’ stop me, huh?” This song was rooted in a bassline that was deeply monophonic. At the end, the pair throw the listeners for a loop and jump off the path. Suddenly, the beat changes, random instruments come in and out of this living, breathing song.
