Watch the Throne — Kanye edition — last night at the Sprint Center

I’m not sure that the Sprint Center has ever had to contend with the levels of swagger that it was dealt last night, but it has also never had to contend with Jay-Z and Kanye West on the same stage. The two artists (and particularly West) are often discussed in terms of ego, and everyone expected and received a display of it in the performance. Who else has no opener, no live band, and plays the same song three times in a row (and pulls it all off, to boot)? That Jay-Z and Kanye West might have big egos is no shock. What was surprising was how hard the two artists work live, how different their styles are, and just how much fun it all was.
