Kanye West and Jay-Z have been working together as a team for quite a while now. In fact, 'Ye has a little bit of a beef with Jay-Z, claiming (somewhat in jest, though not really) that the superstar failed to recognize the young producer's full talent and held him back.

Today, Kanye is at least as successful as his old mentor, so Hova had to make room at the table for one more. Together, the tag team is staking their claim to the throne with their ambitiously titled album, "Watch the Throne." (Available August 1.)

According to USA Today, the hip-hop artists have also formed a "group" of some sort called The Throne, which will make a full 24-stop national tour in the fall. Tickets go on sale a week after the album drops.

Until then, "Lift Off," the album's first single featuring Beyonce and Bruno Mars, is all we'll here from these two.

    Jay-Z is great, but I HATE Kayne. He has the biggest ego ever. That much ego on one person will certainly be his downfall like in one of the old Epic Poems. I think that Avenged Sevenfold with Pantera or Bullet For My Valentine with A7X or BFMV with Metallica.

    My most fave duo ever that I can remember off the top of my head was between Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston when they sang that song When You Believe


    My second favorite duo is between Kelly Clarkson and Reba McEntire in this renidition of Kelly's Because of You song (both versions are good)


    And I am not even a country fan at all either.

    There are way too many to list that far surpass those two fools. How "rich$$" they allegedly are is irrelevant to actually having talent. Jay-Z is deeply involved in the NWO, along with his wife Beyonce.

    How about Garth Brooks and Chris Ledoux...or Elton John and Billy Joel...or Queen and David Bowie....

    Kanye needs to be taught respect and Jay Z is cool in his own right but no musical genius..

    Now if they had maybe said Eminem and Dr Dre I could understand ....

    I think the best one would be Don Dokken and Stephen Pearcy, when they had their voices in the 80's.

    It's going back in time - but - The Everly Brothers were really good as well as The Rightous Brothers.

    These two guys are more than boring. If they formed a group called 'The Throne' or whatever it will be called, it's like a joke. Esp West who is a no talented JERK.

    One was fairly popular, and then even more so when he married Beyonce. The other is quite possibly the biggest jack-ass ever to stumble into the recording industry. I can only imagine that the exec's at that studio were either too stoned or too stupid to realize the mistake they made. As far as the best music duo ever, there are so many others out there that are FAR more deserving.

    Sounds like a pretty cool X-rapper turned failing NBA owner, teams up with Worlds Biggest Douchebag.

    Besides, everyone already knows the best music duo in history was the Juds...

    Dr Dre and Eminem, or anyone. Kanye Sucks Nuts and Jay-z is not too far behind Kanye licking his sweaty nut career.
