After being questioned by the media, Jay-Z and Kanye West are back to work on their long-awaited album, Watch the Throne. The two have been recording for the album in Paris. Recently, they decided to take the album back to the States.

When they started recording the album, the duo took over a room at New York's Mercer Hotel. In their return to the city, Jay-Z and Kanye West will now be recording at Tribeca Grand Hotel. The two are recording "tons of tracks."

During their latest recording session, Kid Cudi, an artist on West's G.O.O.D. Music, listened in. He was joined by Universal executive, Barry Weiss. It was a session with no distractions, simply the music and those who listened as they worked were highly impressed.

Watch the Throne was originally slated for a January release as an EP, but it was delayed when the two rappers decided to turn it into a full-length album. "H.A.M." and "That's My Bitch," featuring Elly Jackson of La Roux, were the first two songs leaked from the album. More collaborations are expected to come with the album also boasting tracks with Bruno Mars and, of course, Beyonce.
