"Luxury Rap, the Hermes of Verses, Sophisticated Ignorance, Write My Curses in Cursive"

And so it begins, the gradual leak the next week or two of the much hyped Watch the Throne from @kanyewest & @s_c_. The back and forth over a funky Otis Redding sample is awesome as both legends go in 8 bars at a time and do it without a hook. Really you don't need a hook when you know everyone will listen, so it's cool when well known artists step outside of the usual and do something out of the ordinary with the verses.

Let's be honest, I don't need to hype this track one bit, all I need to do is remind you that Watch the Throne is out in two weeks. Shouts out to Otis Redding on the original track Try a Little Tenderness...#Classic
