We’re sure that you’ve been seeing various behind-the-scene Watch The Throne tour videos presented by VoyR scattered across the internet over the past couple of months or so, as they’ve followed the Jay & ‘Ye on their historic Watch The Throne tour. The series is actually more about ‘Ye than the duo, they just happen to be on tour together. VoyR states, “VoyR is an interactive entertainment experience to engage with our favorite artists, powering the WTT tour with Kanye West & Jay-Z.” Additionally, “VoyR will evolve ‘the fan’ from a spectator to an insider within the world of some of the greatest icons on the planet”. The entertainment platform has already been deemed “the next MTV” for giving fans unprecedented access. So rather than searching far and wide to catch the episodes, we’ve decided just to put them all here. Look no further, here are ALL the behind the scenes episodes thus far presented by VoyR (hopefully they’re in the correct order). Enjoy!
