Last year, a mini documentary chronicling the making of Kanye West and Jay-Z’s album Watch the Throne surfaced online, but was quickly deleted. Now, the clip has re-appeared, this time with a statement from its creator, Robert Lopuski.
In the world of hip-hop, anybody who does something different is a genius, anybody who does something successful is making history; you know it all becomes these exaggerated, bombastic endeavors. And so, for me, I was not interested in that; I was more interested in the smaller moments. The quiet power of talent.
The footage focuses on Kanye and Jay-Z’s time in Australia, and captures several intimate moments, including Jay-Z’s birthday and a brodown with Russell Crowe. Watch it below.
