One week after the release of the biggest hip hop collaboration in history - Watch The Throne, Jay Z gave fans the inside to the meaning of this epic name.

Without his sidekick and fellow hip hop genius, Kanye West - Jay Z continued to promote the most talked about album of the year calling into Miami's 99 Jamz show. Talking to to the radio show host Lorenzo "Ice Tea" Thomas Hova explained the meaning behind the album title Watch The Throne.

"It's just protecting the music and the culture. It's people that's in the forefront of music, it's like Watch the Throne, protect it. You just watch how popular music shifts and how hip-hop has basically replaced rock and roll as the youth music. The same thing could happen to hip-hop, it could be replaced by other forms of music. So it's just making sure that we put that effort into making the best product so we can contend with all this other music, with all the dance music that's dominating the charts right now and indie music that's dominating the festivals and still hold off rock 'n' roll. Just to hold our place and make sure that the hip-hop culture is still the most dominant form of music around the world."

At the time, Kanye West was overseas in Sweden performing with Prince at the Way Out West festival this weekend.
