And out of nowhere, The Neptunes made the cut on Kanye West & Jay-Z’s Watch The Throne’ on the tune ‘Gotta Have It’. I would have never guessed that The Neptunes gonna be on that, nevertheless can’t wait to hear that collaboration! The album is due August 8th.


Via his Life + Times website, instead of an audio sneak peek, Jay-Z has revealed a visual look into the creation of ‘Watch The Throne’ in the form of more than 20 photos taken during the recording of his collaborative album with Kanye West. In the pictures, besides Yeezy and Hova, a number of celebrities are seen milling about as the two hip-hop stars were going about creating their album. Some of the familiar faces include rapper/producer Pharrell Williams and Jay-Z’s wife, Beyoncé.
