Good news for longtime Roc fans. Hip-Hop heavyweights Kanye West and Jay-Z have ditched their studio at the Mercer Hotel for  the grandeur of the Tribeca Grand Hotel to put the finishing touches on their upcoming album Watch the Throne.

According to the NY Post, the duo was reportedly laying down tracks Wednesday night until 7 a.m. Thursday morning in a studio that had been specially set up in the hotel. The former Rocafella alumni reportedly also went downstairs for a short break with Universal head honcho Barry Weiss, rapper Kid Cudi and staff from the label.

“They were laying down tons of tracks,” a witness said. “It was intense — no Beyoncé and no booze.”

Keep the booze … we’ll take the Beyonce. Oh yeah, and the album! 🙂
