Hov and Kanye kicked off the European leg of their Watch The Throne tour last night at the O2 Arena in London. If you couldn’t make it overseas, here is some footage from the show. They perform “Niggas In Paris” after the cut.
How’s this for niggas in Paris? Well not exactly, but recently The Throne’s hit (explicit at that) was used in French presidential candidate Francois Hollande’s new viral campaign. It’s got our vote.
Tuck ya whole bids in. Initially, The Throne’s Maybach used in their “Otis“ video was expected to sell at least for $100K. Instead, it was sold for $60K in 5 minutes at the Phillips de Pury event in New York on Thursday.
The nonfunctional vehicle, which was valued $300K, was sold as artwork with portions of the sale going towards the Save The Children foundation. Good cause for a cheaper price.
The show continues on. Jay and Ye will be bringing their tour across the pond over into Europe starting on May 20 at London’s O2 Arena. Maybe they will break their record again. Itinerary below. Tix available soon here.

“I met a red-bone, I took the girl home/I asked her what she wanna watch, she said, ‘Surely not The Throne’”
During the YMCMB pre-Grammys party at Paramount Studios last night, Tune gave a moment of silence for Whitney Houston and announced signing Christina Milian.
At the 3:50 mark, he also tosses a pebble Jay and ‘Ye’s way. Oy vey. Surley, Weezy will be the next contestant on that Summer Jam screen. More footage from the festivities below.
Here is something cray. A musician by the name of
Big Homie The Theorist hits the keys for his interpretation of The Throne’s big hit. It’s been a great week for Asians. Not bad at all, kid.
