[video] Jay-Z & Kanye West // N****s In Paris

Full disclosure: before watching this video, I never ever listened to this song. This is particularly strange because I’d identify myself as the most likely to listen to hip hop out of the writers of the blog (except for Will), but I never got Watch the Throne. The first thing I heard from that album was “Otis,” and that soured me to the rest of the experience. (Redding’s music, if you didn’t know, is kind of sacred territory for me.)

But this track is pretty arresting, in and of itself. But you’re more savvy than I am, so you were already aware. Oh, and if you’re prone to epileptic seizures, don’t watch the video.
