The most average releases of August 2011

We've been known to watch the throne all morning, so we understand the importance of making it a hospitable place to bare your ass to a bowl of water. Our hip hop royalty are clearly masters of the hype game, but has this distracted them from creating the perfect shitting experience, one we know they are capable of? We're curious about this throne. Is the seat gold-plated? Does it play forest sounds when you flush? How does its joint custody play out? One month in Kanye's bathroom, one month in Jay-Z's? Is there also a plunger that doubles as a king's scepter? Have they outfitted the throne with decent reading material? Only time we'll tell if watching their Throne leaves us constipated today, or for all time.
