Music is subjective. And everyone has their own opinion on what they consider a fire a** beat.
For some, it’s solely about the bass.
For others, it’s all about some quality drums or flawless keys.
And who doesn’t love a quality, soulful sample.
Today marks the 8th anniversary of one of the greatest hip hop albums we’ve been blessed to experience — Watch The Throne. The Kanye West/Jay-Z joint project set the tone for hella collaboration albums to follow, but none of them caused ripple waves in the culture quite like The Throne.
I mean, The Throne had “Otis”! Everyone remembers where they were in the Summer of 2011 when they her Otis Redding’s vocals on a loop as Hov and Ye’ took turns snaping on the track.
