Album: Watch The Throne
Producer: Hit-Boy, Kanye West, Mike Dean
Label: Roc-A-Fella, Roc Nation, Def Jam
While recording Watch The Throne, Jay and Ye headed to Paris to work, eat, and generally go gorilla. “Niggas In Paris” came out of those sessions. The song embodies opulence and excellence at its finest. Provocative? Of course it is. Think Stunt 101 on a med-school level. The cut was an immediate standout from WTT—and now has kids all over the world obnoxiously chanting, “That shit cray,” and frantically Googling “Margiela.”
During their WTT Tour, the duo performed this song multiple times each and every night. But things got crazy when Jay and Ye actually performed “Paris” in Paris. On their final night in The City of Light, they ran through the track for 56 minutes straight, setting a new record. That’s a lot of fish filets!
