The ubiquity of Kanye West and Jay-Z’s Watch The Throne single “Ni**as in Paris” has hit ridiculous levels thanks to the Internet. Just nine days ago, someone turned the “Don’t let me into my zone” outro by Yeezy into a web-only video game.
But the track might have reached full-on annoying-as-fuck meme status today upon seeing this footage of Katy Perry covering it live for BBC Radio 1. She and her live band stay relatively faithful to the original, though there are no cusses and, of course, no n-bombs. Thankfully. Oh, it’s also pretty bad, in case you didn’t pick up on my tone. You can watch the footage below. [HHNM]
