NerdsofRhyme Top 10 Albums of 2011 #1 Jay-Z & Kanye West “Watch The Throne”

WTT was released on August 8th debuting #1 on the billboard charts, selling 436,000 in the first week.  Tracks like Otis, H.A.M. and Niggas In Paris all became international hits. With a production team including Kanye West, Swizz Beatz, 88 Keys, The RZA WTT felt like a movie. Songs to listen to all of them, this album has great replay value. Even tho I’m tired of hearing Niggas In Paris, a song the Duo performed up to 11 times during their 33 show tour that grossed over 48 million this year. Some of my favorite tracks are: New Day, where they talk about their unborn children not having to go through some of their struggles. Also “Why I Love You” where Jay when in on all the people he’s helped out that aren’t in the picture anymore. “Murder to Excellence” where Hov & Yeezy compare and go back and fourth on Murder and Excellence. WTT was a very creative album, an album that everyone and their moms were talking about when it released and really on of the first times you seen two superstar artist collab on such a successful project.
