Hip-Hop legends Jay-Z and Kanye West took the stage for night three of the Watch The Throne tour at Staples Center Tuesday night, upping the ante on how many times they would perform their hit single “Niggas In Paris”. The plan was to surpass the record set on Monday night: 9 times in a row. The reasoning? Aside from catering to a beyond hyped up crowd of 18,000, they were shooting the video to the album’s most popular single.
“Ya’ll know we’re shooting a video for Niggas In Paris tonight right?” Kanye asked the crowd.
”We didn’t shoot a video yesterday. We didn’t shoot a video the day before. We didn’t shoot a video in New York City. We didn’t shoot a video in Chicago. We’re gonna shoot this —- in Los Angeles.”
To no surprise, the fans grew increasingly louder the more times the song was performed. Ending at a record breaking 10 times in a row, Los Angeles’ Tuesday night Watch The Throne tour audience left the venue satisfied. Of course No U Ain’t Radio was in the building and we shot some footage for you:
The song, which has received more than it’s fair share of radio spins, was produced by Los Angeles bred producer Hit Boy!
