On ur mark. Get ready. Set... Watch the Throne

There is finally a release date for what is likely one of the most highly-anticipated albums of the year: Watch the Throne, the joint effort of rap supernovas Jay-Z and Kanye West. The album went on presale July 4 and will arrive next month. The digital version hits Aug. 1, while the physical CD won't hit stores until Aug. 5. As expected, the duo recruited a cast of all-stars to help with the album, including Jay-Z's wife Beyoncé and pop star Bruno Mars for the first single, Lift Off, which is now in radio rotation.
