*Producer Mike Dean has confirmed that Jay Z and Kanye West are planning a return to the studio to record a second “Watch The Throne” album.

The original was released last summer and released the singles “Otis,” “H.A.M.” and “N**gas in Paris.” In December, Jay Z said a second “Throne” project is a possibility: “We’re in a great place creatively. You might see a Jay, then Kanye, and a ‘Throne’ album next year… We really found our zone.”

Dean is now telling QuietLunch.com that the “Throne” follow-up will begin once West and his G.O.O.D. Music label artists finish their upcoming compilation.

“I’m working on the G.O.O.D. Music album, of course, and ‘Watch The Throne 2’ – it’s not started yet, but it’s coming.”
