As the title implies a hidden power struggle, fashion designer Riccardo Tisci chiseled the cover to "Watch The Throne" into angular, faceted shapes on metallic gold backdrop. While it is rare for a creative director of a fashion house to take part in an album cover design, Tisci, who's the lead creative mind at GIVENCHY, simply couldn't give this opportunity away when friends Kanye West and Jay-Z asked. Aside from the engraved symbolism of masculinity and power, Tisci's kaleidoscopic images extend inward naturally, where beastly transformations of West and Jay-Z highlight both men's raw ambitions. "Watch The Throne" by Kanye West and Jay-Z is now available for download online, but it highly recommended that you purchase the CDs to have the Tisci's work of art as a keepsake.
