Jay-Z and Kanye West just took the concert video to new heights. Their "Ni**as in Paris" video, released today (Feb. 9), uses footage from one of their many performances of the single on their "Watch the Throne" tour -- except it also incorporates tigers, Paris architecture, clips from "Blades of Glory," and a bevy of strobe lights. (Sounds like one of those night clubs Stefon's always going on about in his "SNL" skits, no?) Watch below.
Those prone to seizures may want to skip this one, but otherwise, it's pretty satisfying to see "That Shit Cray" flash across the screen. Also may want to skip if: You're still sore about not making it to Jay and Ye's WTT tour -- there's no denying it was epic with this clip. The duo had a lot of footage to choose from, as there were concerts during which they played "Ni**as in Paris" ten and eleven times (L.A. and Vancouver shows, respectively).
"Ni**as in Paris," the fourth single off Jay-Z and Kanye West's "Watch the Throne," has peaked thus far at No. 5 on the Hot 100 chart, coming in at No. 11 this week. The song has reached No. 1 on the both the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Rap Songs charts.
Fans, what's your take: This shit cray?
