20 Legendary Hip-Hop Concert Moments

Kanye West and Jay-Z Perform "N***as in Paris" 11 Times in a Row—in Paris

Date: 6/1/2012

Kanye and Jay capped their global takeover tour supporting Watch the Throne with a star-studded show at Paris' Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy. They'd already been known for ending their performances by playing "Niggas in Paris" repeatedly, but they took it to the next level in the city that inspired the song, rocking it a record 11 times in a row-a 50-minute display of ball-so-hard.

To top it off, the show had an A-list audience that included Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, Spike Lee, The-Dream, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Adrien Brody collectively losing their shit. Watch the Throne was all about a brazen celebration of glass-ceiling-shattering accomplishments, and this over-the-top performance punctuated the message perfectly.
