Along with the likes of Lil Wayne and Adele, Jay-Z and Kanye West (who are still calling themselves the Throne) will perform at the MTV Video Music Awards tonight. Apparently this was supposed to be a surprise for everyone working at and watching the show, but it’s kind of out of the bag now that E! got a hold of it.
It’s not clear which track(s) they’re going to perform, though I’d expect we’ll hear “Otis” and, perhaps, “Why I Love You” or “N***as in Paris.” Both Watch The Throne cuts are slated to be the album’s next singles in the coming weeks, according to Gowhere HipHop. I’m hoping for “Why I Love You” with some sort of amended shot directed right at Weezy.
The show starts at 9 p.m. Be sure to head back to Prefix tonight as we’ll be live-blogging the entire event.
