The anticipation for [artist id=”1269″]Jay-Z[/artist] and [artist id=”1230523″]Kanye West[/artist]’s joint album Watch the Throne coupled with the lack of information surrounding the project has created the perfect storm for rumors.
Earlier this month, The Source magazine reported that the album would be dropping July 4. With Independence Day coming in less than a week, those chances are looking as slim as the girl in Calvin Klein pants is. But on Wednesday’s (June 29) episode of “Rap Fix Live,” G.O.O.D. Music artist CyHi the Prynce did give fans a bit of hope.
“They are ready to go. Right now, all the music and everything is done,” CyHi told Sway. “But you know my guy — we over here with [Kanye], so ’Ye is gonna add his last little pizzazz, and it’s going to be ready for you guys soon.”
On Tuesday, the Fourth of July speculation continued to swirl as AllHipHop.com ran a rumor report that said that the album will come Monday as a digital-only release to avoid leaks. CyHi would neither confirm nor deny that report, saying he wasn’t privy to that information.
“I don’t know the business of the logistics of it,” he said, dodging the question with a veteran’s poise. “Those are the bosses. You never know what they gonna do and how they gonna put it out. They might put it out yesterday.
“I don’t know. ’Ye can do something, and he can just do it how he wanna do it,” CyHi continued. “He can just put it out tomorrow if he wanted to, and that’s what ’Ye want to do.”
Until then, we’ll continue to watch.
