Jay-Z and Kanye West have released the latest record, “Otis” from their upcoming joint album Watch the Throne set to release August 1st digitally and August 5th for the hard copy (see where music is going?!). When I say I love this record, I mean I am in love with this jawn! The song has a sample from Otis Redding’s “Try a Little Tenderness,” #classic (I shamefully say that I always think of Chris Brown’s rendition of this song from This Christmas whenever I hear it; the boy killed it).
But this record is classic Jigga in my opinion. I mean Blueprint 1, 2 and Black Album Jigga. With the traditional sample in the background…his focus may has changed, but he’s def back and it doesn’t hurt to have Kanyezi by his side.
