Kanye West and Jay-Z Watch the Throne Opening in Atlanta [Video]

This was the tour that had spurious rumours about the strain it placed on these two's relationship. Rumour had it Kanye wanted to go Over the Top, and Jay, being the shrewd business man he is, didn't see any financial sense in going OTT.

It was just a rumour, but beef had reared it's ugly head the last time Jay-Z had a collaborative tour with R. Kelly, so those that cared were slightly worried. Without a glitch, the well oiled machine that is now referred to as the Throne. Kicked off their tour in Atlanta. All you other rappers might do well in watching this, masterclass in performance art.

The spectacle didn’t dissapoint as both heavyweights performed a 2 1/2 hour set of individual hits in their respective catalogues, plus for the first time songs off their platinum-selling Watch The Throne LP. On lookers that included LeBron James, T.I., Young Jeezy, The-Dream, Shawn Pecas, DJ Jazzy Jeff and more got to witness a set that included: two high-definition big screens, two cubed shaped rising platforms, pyrotechnics, and even two great white sharks in tanks.

Yeezy also debuted a second colourway of the much anticipated Air Yeezy 2's. I wish this tour would hit our shores.
