As Jay-Z and Kanye West prep their collaborative LP, Watch The Throne, Kanye takes a time-out to comment on the sound.

Speaking to Interview magazine, Mr. West explains: It’s a me and Jay album. This whole album, Watch The Throne, is going to be very dark and sexy- like very couture Hip Hop.” He adds: Since me and Jay have already had big records and over-the-top joints, we’re just going to make some real dirty, f****d-up, hardcore stuff. But it’s also luxe and definitely high-class.

Previously, Jay-Z also commented on the forthcoming collaborative album.

This is another level of that recording. Because Kanye, I’ve seen him – really he’s like a brother to me – I’ve seen him from the beginning to where he is now. And to see him as a producer, and to see how he’s growing as a producer and as an artist, for me, on another level. It’s enjoyable.

There is no exact release date set at this time, but word has it that Watch The Throne may hit stores at the first quarter of 2011.
