Early reports about Jay and Ye's massive U.S. excursion have been wholly positive, even glowingly adulatory. And although their live production appears to be just as ridiculously over-the-top (elaborate stage sets, equally elaborate minisets, 50-foot floating cubes, building-size LED screens, levitating platforms, laser shows, even Givenchy-designed American flags) as their recorded exploits, there's undoubtedly a dazzling kind of intimacy to holding court with these kings. So maybe like another once-omnipotent, now-waning royal — Lil Wayne, whose recent blazing trek around the country seemed to contradict the lame morass of his latest album — Jay-Z and Kanye will emerge from the Watch the Throne tour as reconfirmed monarchs who've beaten back the pretenders, the usurpers, the punk bitches.
After all, these kings have already been to war. They've been guarding their huge and exalted solid-gold seats for more than a decade without incident. And this wouldn't be the first time they've fended off threats from the hip-hop hordes.

But then again, maybe the days of His Hovatastic Majesty Jay-Z and King Kanye are finally over, and the Reign of Terror is almost upon us.
Are you serious? Were you there last night? That was the best show I've seen since I saw MJ back in the day!!!!!!!!!!!!
Who are these music writers for the New Times?...Nothing I ever read, specifically when it comes to hip-hop/rap, is any good. There is a bias and it's pretty obvious
Huh? Odd Future's Frank Ocean was featured on two tracks on Watch the Throne. Pretty sure they support what Kanye and Jay did. Actually, I know they do: http://oddfuturetalk.com/watch...
You write like an idiot.If you dont like Hip Hop dont write about i cause you are walking the respectful line.This show is one of the greatest shows ever.Why knock what you dont understand its called ignorance.
