Why Kanye West Can Keep ‘Watch The Thrones 2’

Published

on

When Kanye West and Jay Z released Watch The Throne in August of 2011, the star pair were in perfect sync. Their relationship had blossomed throughout years of working together. Now it was time for them to cash out creatively and financially with a joint project for the ages. What listeners got was a mesmerizing project that featured the pair battling for lyrical supremacy. Cuts like “Otis” and “What You Need” featured a legendary back-and-forth dynamic that spurned some of their best performances.

Since then, their relationship has reportedly soured. Kanye’s become the kind of megalomaniac that could do with a punch or two in the face. Jay Z was angry that Kayne brought up his family when he publicly wondered why their kids haven’t played together yet. Now they’re embroiled in a Cold War of epic proportions; one that looks to continue for the rest of their careers.

 

It makes Kanye’s sudden tweet about the album’s upcoming sequel so weird. Being that the two aren’t even on speaking terms, it wouldn’t be crazy to believe that the second iteration of the series won’t include Jay. Kanye could keep things to himself or enlist the help of others; maybe even Lil Pump who he recently collaborated with on “I Love It.”

The last few months have proven that Kanye’s creative well could be in the beginning stages of drying up. ye was an awful album; the video for “I Love It” was a creative disaster. With this Kanye at the helm, do we really want Watch The Throne II? Or is the ever present threat of nostalgia rearing its head?

If there’s no Jay Z, Kanye can keep Watch The Throne II. It’s only fair.

O Racks, Rhoco Benjie & Zeeko Release “Im The Type”

Published

Following his collaboration with Pop Smoke affiliate Sosa Geek, O Racks (@TreeGang_racks) connects with Drake-producer Yozora for “I’m The Type.” Accompanied by Rhoco Benjie and Zeeko, the follow up to “We Made It” finds the New York native adopting a Detroit / LA influenced flow while boasting about his lavish lifestyle. The trio effortlessly trade bars over the bouncy beat setting the stage for the Tree Gang Entertainment CEO’s next release.

“In Hollywood everyone parties together. When you’re not an LA native you notice the locals taste in music. From what I witnessed, most people gravitate towards Cali and Detroit type beats because the energy makes it easy to dance to. So I told the producer to send me something in that lane. Soon as I heard it, the first verse just flew out – I’m the type of nigga start it up and air it out. The rest was history,” says O Racks when describing the song’s origins.

Born and raised in Hempstead, O Racks decided early in life he would pursue music professionally. Dedicated to the craft, O Racks began rapping and creating songs, even traveling outside of the tri-city area expanding his reach to Rhode Island, California, Atlanta, and Miami. With each release he acquired more fans and sharpened his skills, eventually catching the ear of Rich The Kid. The relationship spawned two records, “Prices” and “Look At Me, ” which received radio airplay soon after being released. Fast forward, he incorporated his independent music label Tree Gang Entertainment and took it to Hollywood.
