Where's the Throne? Join Jay-Z and Kanye West's Scavenger Hunt for Free Concert Tickets

You'd do anything to sit atop The Throne, curled up in the resplendent million-dollar laps of His Hovatastic Majesty Jay-Z and King Kanye.

But there's no way that you, a poor and humble pauper, could ever gather enough gold to pay for a $276.50 ticket to the royal duo's November 15 concert at the American Airlines Arena. You ain't got that kinda treasure. And in fact, your only property in this world is a copy of Jay and Ye's magnum opus, a bank account in massive overdraft, and a busted-ass camera phone.

Well, shit's looking up, street urchin. 'Cause Hova, Yeezy, and the AAA have teamed to give their ticketless subjects the chance to score free tix by participating in a social media-driven scavenger hunt called Where's the Throne?

UPDATE: The arena's minions have just provided Crossfade with a photo of Jay and Ye's magnificent seat. Check the cut and behold its gaudy golden glory.

Here's the deal:

1. Every day at 3:30 p.m., beginning this Saturday and running through Friday, October 14, a team of the arena's minions will "place a throne in a different location throughout Miami."

2. As soon as Jay and Ye's magnificent seat is set up, a series of cryptic clues pertaining to its secret location will be blasted out onto the internet via @MiamiHeat and @aaarena.

3. Your mission: Find that freaking throne, sit triumphantly atop it, and snap a photo with your busted-ass camera phone. Then before 6p.m., shoot a twitpic over to @aaarena using the hashtag #WheresTheThrone.

Your ascension to The Throne is within grasp, poop and humble pauper. Don't mess it up.
