Cyhi the Prince is confirming to MTV News that the joint album between Kanye West & Jay-Z “Watch the Throne” which was supposed to be released back in March is finished and ready to go. MTV themselves speculate that the album may be released on Monday, along with Rolling Stone, The Source. AllHipHop is reporting that in order to avoid leaks the album will be released only digitally. VH1 is reporting that a source close to Jay-Z is saying that the album is not going to be released on July 4. The rappers may have moved the released of the album after releasing the disappointing single ‘H.A.M.’.
Way back in March when I started my hibernation DOM released their acoustic version of ‘Burning Bridges’ and I didn’t post it so to restart this series I’m just going to post the track. This version of ‘Burning Bridges’ was recorded during CMJ and features finger-picked guitars instead of synths and three overdriven guitars all over song. You can download the track below.
