Jay-Z, Kanye West ‘N—-s in Paris’ Video Debuts This Week
Jay-Z and Kanye West dropped their collaborative LP, ‘Watch the Throne,’ last year, and since then, fans have eagerly awaited the visuals of one of the album’s lauded singles, ‘N—-s in Paris.’ The track landed on The BoomBox’s Best Songs of 2011 list, coming in at No. 1, and peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100. Now the rap duo will finally unveil the video for the Hit-Boy-produced song this week.
VEVO reports that Hov and Yeezy will debut the clip on Thurs., Feb. 9. The video will reportedly feature footage from December’s Watch the Throne tour stop in Los Angeles. While most of the previous concerts they did featured them performing ‘N—-s in Paris’ a total of three times or more, the L.A. stop had the hip-hop vets rapping to the tune 10 times in a row.
Both MCs will find themselves competing for awards come Sun., Feb. 12 at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards. ‘Watch the Throne’ is up for Best Rap Album while ‘Otis,’ the first single off the album, is up for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance.
The 54th Annual Grammy Awards air live from the Staples Center at 8PM EST on Feb. 12, 2012.
