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.

Dro Kenji’s Glides Through Gotham with “THEY DON’T KNOW”

Published

Armed with mellifluous melodies, an introspective pen, and an otherworldly creative vision, Dro Kenji has quickly built a strong reputation for consistent quality and colorful creativity. Since putting on a masterclass in world-building with the vibrant visuals from his debut album, WITH OR WITHOUT YOU, earlier this year, Kenji returns to tackle hidden demons in “THEY DON’T KNOW,” his new video single. Produced by CensusCxdyParyo, and Taz Taylor, the track finds Kenji reflecting on romance gone rotten and fighting to keep hurt feelings at bay. He paints heart-broken pictures with heart-racing intensity as he croons, “Lost in the storm, stuck in time / But the past don’t change, so why should I?”

The Declan Kyle-directed video for “THEY DON’T KNOW” is a departure from Kenji’s previous collaborations with the music video maven on recent clips, such as “PUSH2START” and “VANISH,” which built up the purple-tinted dream world of the Dro Kenji cinematic universe. Set in the cold, dark streets of New York City, “THEY DON’T KNOW” sees Kenji walking on bench tops in Central Park and skipping down the infamous “Joker Stairs” in the Bronx, as he contends with his inner demons.. 

“THEY DON’T KNOW” marks Kenji’s first single following his recent debut album, WITH OR WITHOUT YOU. Released in January, WITH OR WITHOUT YOU arrived after a banner year for the young artist, which saw him embark on his first headlining national tour, wrapping up with a performance at Rolling Loud California. 2021 also saw Kenji release two new mixtapes, including EAT YOUR HEART OUT, this past spring, featuring “KILL CUPID” ft. $NOT (13+ million Spotify streams), which received an animated video, and the early summer’s F*CK YOUR FEELINGS, which saw the rapper flex and reflect over 16 tracks of expansive Internet Money production, and features highlights like “SUPERSTAR” and “TRANCE.” 

Never one to rest on his laurels, Dro Kenji continues to hustle his way to new heights. The 20-year-old artist was a standout performer at this year’s SXSW, performing at multiple showcases including Rolling Loud x RapTV’s extravaganza at Stubb’s, and catching up with Variance Magazine. Stay tuned for much more from the prolific artist–including a new project coming this summer–as he continues his ascent to the highest echelons of the rap game.
