Jay-Z and Kanye West released the video for “N*ggas In Paris” and let’s just say when your video comes with an epileptic warning, you know you’re balling so hard.
Directed by Kanye, one can only assume there will be a high level of intelligent creativity.
And there is–panthers, shots of Parisian architecture, gorgeous screaming fans and a Will Ferrell cameo–all give us a small glimpse into the beautiful, dark, twisted fantasy that is Kanye’s mind.
“N*ggas In Paris” may be one of the most infectious songs from Watch The Throne–at least for me it is. Once that beat drops, I can’t help but bounce my shoulders and pretend my bank account rivals both Jay-Z and Kanye’s. So with the release of this video, the dynamic duo reminds us why we’re watching the throne in the first place.
Here’s three reasons why that sh*t is indeed cray.
1. If the first five seconds don’t give you a seizure, watching “N*ggas In Paris” in its entirety, will. Watch with extreme caution and hold your tongue, literally.
2. So, we’re still not going to say anything about Kanye and this leather skirt? Oh. ok.
3. In case you missed any of the Watch The Throne tour stops, ‘Ye and Jay give us a mini experience of the spectacle that was Watch The Throne. From a kaleidoscoped stage and modelesque crowd to the flashing lights–it’s not quite what the show was, but Kanye does manage to fully portray excitement.

Can’t get enough of the Throne? Jay-Z told MTV, “We – I say ‘we’ because I’m in Throne mode–we’re in a great place creatively. You might see a Jay, then Kanye and a Throne album next year. We’ve really found our zone.”
