Watching the Throne with Jay Z and Kanye West

In a sort of one-off re-launch of their Watch the Throne tour, rap titans Jay Z and Kanye West teamed up again last night for a celebratory – if not revelatory – SXSW show at the Austin Music Hall, filling the small-for-them 4600-seater to the point of nearly popping. Unsurprisingly for the veteran duo, they proceeded to basically make it pop, over the course of a two-hour-plus take-no-prisoners show that astonishingly didn’t once mention sponsors Samsung, who ostensibly footed the bill to promote their new music service, Milk.

Instead, Jigga and Yeezus blasted through the night almost without stop, emerging atop two towering mini-stages (as they did on their Throne tour), playing both together and in separate standalone sets (as they did on that tour), all the while backed by a crack three piece band (as they did on their… do you sense a pattern?).

In fact, the only key difference here is that since that collaborative effort each has released a blockbuster album, meaning Kanye performed cuts from his Pazz-&-Jop-topping effort Yeezus (“Black Skinhead;” “New Slaves”), while Jay Z attacked key cuts from Magna Carta Holy Grail, including “Tom Ford” and “Beach Is Better.”
