<p>The new Kanye West and Jay Z album, <i>Watch the Throne</i>, brings together the two biggest stars in hip hop (sorry, Weezy) for one victory lap album.</p><p>The second track is not my favorite (it's "like Shia LeBoeuf in song form" as <a href="http://bigghostnahmean.blogspot.com/2011/08/ayo-this-p-tones-review-for-watch.html">one reviewer</a> put it) but it does feature a NASA sample that's obvious but hot. It's from Apollo 11. You can hear the original synched with the film from the launch above.</p>
