Watch The Throne wasn’t the first time Jay-Z hooked up for an album-length collaboration (or two) with an eccentric musical genius whose life resembles an elaborate act of avant-garde performance art. In 2002, Jay-Z hooked up with R. Kelly for the ironically titled The Best Of Both Worlds, a project that seemingly should have scared him off risky album-length collaborations forever.
My World Of Flops takes on the failed R. Kelly/Jay-Z union of 2002.
Hot and fresh out the kitchen, Young The Giant covers R. Kelly’s “Ignition (Remix)” for Undercover. This is the first time we’ve had furs or Kells in the round room, but we should probably have both of them in their more often.
