Kanye West Teases ‘Watch the Throne 2′ Album After Jay-Z Explains “What’s Free” Lyrics
Kanye West teases Watch the Throne 2 once again. Earlier today (Nov. 30), the internet speculated that Yeezy's longtime friend-collaborator Jay-Z had dissed him on Meek Mill's new Championships album track, "What's Free." Within hours, Hov responded with a tweet dismissing that idea, and Kanye promptly responded with a tantalizing message.
"Throne 2 ♂️," Yeezy wrote at the time. Hov has yet to publicly respond to Yeezy's tweet, which points toward the potential release of the sequel to the critically acclaimed joint album the two dropped seven years ago.
The comment that led to Yeezy's response to Jay came after Jay stepped forth to shoot down speculation that he'd diss 'Ye on "What's Free." In the lyrics in question, Hov makes reference to a red hat and Yeezy and house slaves, leading many to believe he was speaking on Kanye's relationship with President Trump (the Make America Great Again hat is red, by the way).
"No red hat, don't Michael and Prince me and Ye/They separate you when you got Michael and Prince's DNA/I ain't one of these house niggas you bought/My house like a resort, my house bigger than yours/My spou- C'mon man/My route better of course," Hov spits on the track.
Naturally the internet exploded with speculation, but Hov largely put an end to the noise with one of his ultra-rare tweets. "The line clearly meant don’t pit me against my brothers no matter what our differences are (red hat) now go pick up Meek album . Drake and Meek on there together," Hov wrote.
