Some of the biggest forces in black entertainment will be joining forces to pay homage to Jay-Z and Kanye West’s celebrated Watch the Throne tour. Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s production company is releasing a documentary on the hip-hop duo’s concert series, which should be debuting this September at the Toronto Film Festival. The New York Daily News reports:
A source tells us the “Watch the Throne” documentary, which partially leaked onto the Internet Aug. 8, will be produced by Overbrook Entertainment, the Smiths’ production company. According to the insider, the film, which will give fans a look at the highly successful album’s recording process, is set to premiere in full at the Toronto Film Festival on Sunday, Sept. 9.
The Smiths are confirmed to attend, we’re told, although it’s up in the air if Jay-Z or West will show. Neither is confirmed at this point.
The source, however, says backers are “confident West will be there,” despite the event being smack in the middle of New York Fashion Week. It’s uncertain what the mercurial rapper is planning for that event, especially considering that his lady friend, Kim Kardashian , has a meet-and-greet planned for Fashion’s Night Out on Sept. 6 in Manhattan at Lord & Taylor.
