Before summer I counted down the ten most anticipated albums of the summer, so how did that list compare to what was actually released and lived up to the hype? Check out the Top 10 Albums of the Summer below along with a few honorable mentions!

It’s finally here!! The ten years in the making album, Watch the Throne has arrived. This is possibly the most anticipated album of the last couple years and the two biggest names in rap music have come together to finally collaborate for a full length LP. With no guest appearances from other emcees, it’s just Kanye and Jay exchanging bars for the whole album. Exactly what we all wanted. I’m really glad that this album didn’t leak, it’s a shame when artists work so hard on their music and then it leaks early (J. Cole has been a serious victim of this). It causes bad sales and is bad for music as a whole. Well I don’t want to go on to much about how much I’ve been looking forward, just hit the jump for the review of the highly anticipated collaboration between Kanye West and Jay-Z, Watch the Throne!

Sorry about the brief hiatus there guys but I went on a surprise trip to the Bahamas. Since it was a surprise I wasn’t prepared and the Childish Gambino EP review was the only article I had already done. I would have prepared a bunch more, but again it was a complete surprise.

Well in other news, Watch the Throne will be released digitally August 8th and in order to build up more hype for that, I’m going to do three reviews of albums by Kanye West and Jay-Z. Later today I’ll post a review of Kanye West’s Graduation, tomorrow I’ll post a review of Jay-Z’s The Blueprint 3 and then Sunday you’ll get the review My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy by Kanye West. All of this leading up to August 8th when Watch the Throne will be released. I’ll post a review of Watch the Throne sometime that morning, so you can listen to it and read the review at the same time or whatever. It’s all up to you. Thanks for your time guys and be on the lookout for those reviews coming to you soon!

This has been one of the strongest weeks for music releases in recent memory. We got new music from Kanye & Jay, Rockie Fresh, Curren$y with Wiz Khalifa and Big Sean, Hoodie Allen, H.O.P.E., Huey Mack, Sonny Shotz and Royce da 5’9″. I put up eight tracks because there was absolutely no way I could narrow it down to five, I even had to cut out solid releases from Emilio Rojas and two other releases from Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean and Curren$y from the list. Well, hit the jump to stream each track!

Updated! Now with the official tracklisting!

On Thursday, July 7th Jay-Z held an extremely private listening session for his Watch the Throne project with Kanye West which is set to drop on August 2nd. No tweeting was allowed (apparently someone was thrown out for it), however the reporters were allowed to take notes. While most of the people who attended have stated their own thoughts via different methods, an overall view of each track played has been compiled by the people who were there. So check below for a track by track preview of the highly anticipated Kanye West and Jay-Z album, Watch the Throne!
