Jay-Z and Kanye West, or the Throne as they like to be called, just wrapped up their rather comprehensive tour of North America behind their joint album, Watch The Throne. And as we saw yesterday, they closed the jaunt in Vancouver, B.C. by setting a personal record for performances of “Ni**as in Paris” in one show. Eleven times. They did the song 11 times.
And as a means of embracing the absurdity/self-indulgence of the repeated performances, Rolling Stone put together a “definitive breakdown” of “Ni**as in Paris.” It includes stuff like the fact that they haven’t performed it in Paris yet, the average times they played it per night (4.94 times), and the fact that Jay-Z exclaimed the word “again” 134 times. Damn. You can read the full breakdown at Rolling Stone.
