Jay-Z + Kanye West Perform ‘N—as in Paris’ in Paris 11 Times
Jay-Z and Kanye West brought their ‘Watch the Throne’ into Paris Friday night (June 2) and performed their anthemic song ‘N—as in Paris’ a record-stunting 11 times. Rap Radar captured the historic moment on video and it’s was thrilling to watch.
Before the Throne performed ‘N—as in Paris’ for the 11th time in a row, they explained to the Paris crowd that no other artist performs their classic songs in succession and they are about to witness something monumental. “Paris, if we do this motherf—in’ one more time we are going to set a national motherf—in’ hall of fame of music, Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, I don’t give a f—, history tonight!” screamed Yeezy. Then Jay-Z and West tied their wrists with the Paris flag and made the audience countdown from 10 to 1. Lift off! And their record-breaking performance was achieved.
During the performance the song’s producer Hit-Boy crowd surfed the audience. “Hov didn’t just really call me on stage in Paris to crowd surf. The Roc family is too real. I’m the second person only to ever grace WTT stage,” he tweeted. He later added, “Tonight really happened. Me and [Rihanna] the only two people to ever touch that WTT stage beside ye and hovi. Swag on another level.”
Swag, indeed. Rihanna joined Hov and Yeezy in London back in May as the first-ever guest to grace the WTT stage. The Barbadian songbird performed ‘All of the Lights’ with West and later sung ‘Run This Town’ with Jay-Z.
The A-list celebrities in attendance to watch the Throne concert included Gwyneth Paltrow, Justin Bieber, The-Dream, Kelly Rowland and Spike Lee. “Tonight’s Show Beat The Ones I Saw In NY, LA And London. Jay-Z/Kanye Drove Paris Crowd Into Hysteria,” tweeted the filmmaker.
Judging by the video, Paris was ballin’ hard for real.
