Mike Dean Re-Confirms Kanye West & Jay-Z Will Record "Watch The Throne 2"

Kanye West's engineer reveals that Jay-Z and Kanye will be back in the studio for another collaboration.

Mike Dean has been doing the media circuit recently, detailing his involvement as an engineer in recording Kanye West's Yeezus.

Now, Dean has dropped a bomb, confirming on Twitter that Kanye West and Jay-Z's Watch the Throne will be getting a sequel.

Dean made the reveal while responding to producer Hudson Mohawke's comment that he wasn't a fan of Jay-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail (spotted at HHNM):

Dean stated that Watch the Throne would be getting a sequel last year, but nothing had been heard about it since then.

With Jay-Z releasing Magna Carta Holy Grail within weeks of Kanye West's release of Yeezus, it's very possible the two Rap superstars could record WTT2 and roll all of the material into an international tour, much like the duo embarked on for WTT.

As of now, however, Kanye will be going on a tour in support of Yeezus, and Mike Dean will be joining him. Dean has performed with West since 2010. Dean's early work included mixing and mastering for Rap-A-Lot Records, producing for such Southern legends as Scarface, Geto Boys, and Devin the Dude.
