Jay-Z on the Throne: Three Albums Could Drop in 2012

Kanye West has noted his regret at releasing two albums in the same Grammy period, but according to the Throne partner Jay-Z, 2012 may see a trio of releases from the two MCs.

"It depends on how this thing finishes up," Jay-Z told MTV News of the duo's current tour. "We - when I say 'we' because I'm in Throne mode - we're in a great place creatively. You might see a Jay, then Kanye and a Throne album next year. You know, we're just really in a great place creatively. We really found our zone."

West leads the 2012 Grammys with seven nominations, with both "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" and "Watch the Throne" nominated for Best Rap Album. Yet neither was nominated for Album of the Year, a snub he acknowledged during a Throne concert in Chicago earlier this month.

"But I figured out though, that's my fault for dropping 'Watch the Throne' and 'Dark Fantasy' the same year," he said. "I should have just spaced it out a little bit more."

In the same remarks, he also told the crowd that more music was on the way.

"Don't worry, because me and Hov gonna keep on making sh*t," he said.
