Watch The Throne
Watch the Throne, the middle agers had a tough time of doing this while making such a thing look extremely easy. This examiner believes that Jay-Z and Kanye chose this middle age passage to sub-signify a period in time, now. At the moment no Hip-Hop aficianado can really claim the throne as their own unless they wish to take such a thing away by taking over “The Throne” and who does not want to? Watch The Throne.
“You are now watching the throne don’t let me into my zone”
Kanye recites this line fluidly and yet with a subtle harshness near the epic saga like ending full of a smoothly measured dramatic orchestra ensemble. This examiner believes that the creation of such a line brings meaning toward the metaphor “you are now watching the throne” as if one could merely “watch” and not “claim” or earn the said throne.
“Don’t let me into my zone”
could mean that if either Jay or Kanye obtain the groove or zone which is believed to be a place where one is completely in tune and concentrated amid an obliterated spectrum (Vicinity) by trance like focus. Once in this place where nothing goes wrong the child like creativity cannot be stopped thus making the taking of the throne impossible.
In this sense, that watching the throne can deliberately mean something even more, watching the throne can be seen as a sort of diabolical reflection that the throne is really a thorn and the pain of watching such a thing only brings justice to the surrounding area, or Kingdom.
Ni**as In Paris
Ni**as In Paris is a simple cut, one that sounds simple and easy but truly filled with a tremendous amount of space and glitzy bass pounds.
The Video is set on stage with a laser show like atmosphere. The video shows symmetry all throughout the length of the song, when lion roars roam in to the cut, the video simply mirrors the affect passionately while making the video more cinematic and fantasia like as the reflections dance onscreen to the beat of the song. The video is abundant in beautiful woman and diamond pieces bezzelled on screen also supplied with symmetry affect. The pure mathematics of the video also includes grand architecture near the end of the cut. Statues and black panthers converse with the screen multiplying the kingdoms creatures and depictions as if watching the throne was not easy enough. Hardly, the amount of swag brought to the people from these scenes is ridiculous. From jump, Kanye and Jay-Z are on stage in front of a fully attended audience, packed. The set is full of theatrics, lasers, lights, DJ, a lining of band pieces, two very large screens, and star studded fashion.
Watch the Throne could have been one of the best efforts at the greatest Hip-Hop album ever made. The collaboration of Kanye and Jay-Z speaks volumes enough as is. With the double attack of rhymes and hype that each other give and feed off of is astronomically an old school Hip-hop masterpiece of a decision. This golden variety of Hip-Hop would have catapulted Watch The Throne to the top, however, there was not enough of that good ol’ stuff, sort of speak. Watch The Throne has concocted the best tracks of the next 5 years, but the only thing holding back is the memory/replay value of the album. 4/5 stars and nothing but dazzling stars *****.
