Kanye and Jiggaman sample an Otis Redding clasic song for the first official offering of their much-awaited joint album 'Watch the Throne'.
A brand new song from Kanye West and Jay-Z's upcoming duet album "Watch the Throne" has recently hit the web. Titled "Otis", it features the two high-profile rappers trading verses over the soulful track which samples Otis Redding's classic "Try a Little Tenderness".
"Watch the Throne" is going to be released across the United States on August 2. Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All's member Frank Ocean, Jigga's wife Beyonce Knowles, Kanye's protege Mr. Hudson, and R&B/funk artist Curtis Mayfield are lined up as featured guests.
The album has been made available for pre-order since July 4. A listening party for the effort has been held by Jigga on July 7 to a handful of selected music journalists and two lucky fans. The rapper played the new songs from his laptop at the Mercer Hotel in New York.
