Back when Jay-Z and Kanye West were recording Watch The Throne, they rented out hotel floors instead of recording in professional studios. One of the hotels that they rented out was the Mercer Hotel in New York City. To thank the staff for their hospitality to himself and Hov, Kanye invited the entire staff to the Watch The Throne tour when it was at the Izod Center in New Jersey last weekend and they weren’t nosebleed seats either! Not only were the staff invited to the show, Yeezy even thanked every single staff member personally! Read more after the jump.


Over the weekend, the multi-platinum producer/rapper treated the entire NYC’s Mercer Hotel staff to free attendance to the Watch The Throne tour at the Izod Center in New Jersey.

Yeezy reportedly provided the big pay back for the employees for treating him and Hov with great hospitality after the duo rented out the entire 2nd floor of the hotel to record parts of their joint LP, Watch The Throne. And these weren’t any nosebleed seats either, according to one of the staff.

“We were all provided with complimentary tickets, and Kanye personally thanked each team member for attending,” one employee told the New York Post. “The seats were amazing and he was such a gentleman.”
