Them's fightin' words, as producer 9th Wonder took to Twitter to lay a diss about Jay-Z's and Kanye West's Watch the Throne platter. The Wonder is not feeling what is considered one of the biggest hip-hop collaborations of the year.
The producer posted this tweet: "Thank you God for giving me the ability to listen to music objectively, despite how big the artist is." He said that he is "not a follower" and that "if something is dope, cool, if not, then cool, but I don't follow."
He also said that Watch the Throne "as a whole is not for me. I understand expansion/experimentation in music, but it's not for me."
Okay, so it's not for you. But well over 500,000 people think it's for them, as that's what Billboard is predicting the record will sell its first week in stores.
Are you going to check out Watch the Throne? Do you care about 9th Wonder's opinion?
