A year after releasing "Watch the Throne", Jay-Z and Kanye West officially release a documentary video following them during the making of their collaborative album. The 10-minute footage includes the two rappers' studio sessions in Sydney, Australia.
Jigga and Yeezy along with their other partners are featured listening to the music they've recorded in one scene. At another point, the Roc Nation founder is seen opening up about the difficulty of crafting lyrics.
In a more intimate moment, Yeezy is videotaped giving a special gift to Jigga during a dinner at which Beyonce Knowles is also sitting at the dining table. Their bromance is also getting a highlight in this documentary as they are seen having small talks in between making music.
"Kanye, I've seen him as like a brother to me," Jigga says in the video. "I've seen him from the beginning to where he is now... I'm watching the guy who I pretty much mentored became his own guy with his own opinion. It's fantastic."
He continues commenting on his duet partner, "That's why I respect him because nobody can tell him nothing. He's not acting out or showing. He's not showing off because he's successful. He would be standing on the table like 'I have the best rhymes ever!' And I'd be like 'yo man!' We thought the music he was making was so good. Let's get him a deal, you know keep the music close."
Robert Lopuski served behind the lens for the documentary without any specific direction from the Throne duo. "The Australia sessions were very intimate," he gushes about the moments captured in the video. "It was really just six or seven people in a room. They rented a mansion and turned it into a recording studio."
