While hip-hop fans were watching the throne, Respect magazine put the duo on it's cover.
Jay-Z and Kanye West, billed as The Throne on their latest duet album Watch The Throne, are depicted performing together during a concert on the magazine's front page. The image itself betrays that neither Jay or Kanye offered their own words for the issue's feature, however Respect editor Elliott Wilson is just fine with the fallout.
"Jay and Kanye aren’t doin’ any press but I still got something to say about the album everyone is and should be talkin’ about," Wilson wrote on his hip-hop news website, RapRadar.
The new issue of Respect magazine hits newsstands on September 6.
