Its been all about Watch(ing) The Throne for Kanye West for nearly the past year. Shortly following Kanye and Jay-Z’s Europe stint of the tour, Atlantic City’s Revel Resort and Casino announced that Kanye will perform for two nights for the opening of its HQ Nightclub. If Revel sounds familiar its because Memorial Day weekend at Revel was when the First Lady of the U.S. showed up to Beyonce’s big comeback performance since having baby Blue Ivy. And since everyone in the Carter’s friends-family circle does it way big, Kanye West is following in Bey’s footsteps with his first solo performance since Coachella 2011.
It wouldn’t surprise us if Ye has a few tricks up his sleeve for the show with this being his first since last year and the upcoming G.O.O.D. Music Cruel Summer compilation album. Picture the greatness that is will take the stage on July 6 and 7. Even if Kanye only stood there and rapped songs from College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation, 808s & Heartbreaks and My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy the show would be complete. But we know Mr. West is going to bring his creativity full force. Be very prepared for an unprecedented level of all epic everything. No one man should have all those classics.
