Oh, you didn’t know that today was “Ni**as In Paris” video drop day? So I guess you’re not sitting on your sofa right now decked out in your Watch the Throne tour t-shirt LIKE I AM?! Well, I’ll pass no judgements on you for that, I guess (as far as you know!). But yes, today is indeed that day — YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT, PEOPLE — and what an awesome day it is.
If you’ve been to any of the shows that Jay-Z and Kanye have put on during the WTT tour, you know that this is the song they perform during the encore, and they do it multiple times (when I saw them they did it eight times and every one of them was AMAZING). The video is a compilation of clips of them performing the song in concert. For full effect, UPROXX pal Matt T and I both suggest you watch it at least eight times in succession. You’re just cheating yourself if you do otherwise.
Oh, and the video comes with the following disclaimer: “THIS VIDEO HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED BY EPILEPSY ACTION TO POTENTIALLY TRIGGER SEIZURES FOR PEOPLE WITH PHOTOSENSITIVE EPILEPSY…VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.”
Consider yourself warned.
