9th Wonder Says Jay-Z & Kanye West's "Watch The Throne" LP "Isn't For Me"

The super producer explains why he's not exactly on board with the freshly released project.

With the fresh release of Jay-Z and Kanye West's highly anticipated Watch the Throne, 9th Wonder took to Twitter last night to share his thoughts on the album, explaining why he wasn't exactly feeling the project.

The super producer, who produced "Threat" for Hov's 2003 LP The Black Album, stated that he isn't a "follower, never will be" and that he wants to be "SCARED" when he listens to a new project. He justified his opinion by explaining that he judges music by the feeling he gets from it, and that the collaborative album didn't resonate with him.
