It's hard to believe it's been nearly two years since Jay-Z and Kanye West released Watch the Throne. Last year, Grammy Award winning Hip Hop producer Mike Dean, who was heavily involved in the recording of the album, revealed plans for a sequel, but we hadn't heard much else until today.
If you thought the spacey, Kid Cudi-featuring "Guilt Trip" sounded a little out of place on the otherwise aggressive and rough-hewn Yeezus, you're quite perceptive. As it turns out, the song was originally recorded during the Watch The Throne sessions and featured a Jay Z verse.
On paper, hip-hop and opera seem like completely different styles of music, but many producers have shown us otherwise. Using dramatic, often high-pitched vocal samples, they add a theatrical element to rap tracks.
