Following a trend on the Watch the Throne tour of playing Ni**as in Paris, five and six times, Jay Z and Kanye West played the track a record number of nine times at their show in LA last night. Is this getting out of hand? Are they just being lazy? From the video it looks like it might just be really fun to be on stage during the explosive, laser-show break. Check it out:
Watch the Throne‘s latest single Ni**as in Paris features the now ubiquitous sample from the film Blades of Glory where Will Ferrell’s character says:
“No one knows what it means, but it’s provocative… it gets the people going!”
Ferrell reported that he was flattered when Kanye West approached him about using the quote and is now immortalized on the classic track.
