It’s been performed up to 10 times in one night. It’s sold over 100 million copies in the United States along. It’s the 5th most played song in my iTunes library but the infamous Jay-Z x Kanye West hit ‘Niggas in Paris’ has only just been granted the privilege of having its very own video.
With a track as insane as this, you know they need a video to match and the (seemingly unnamed) director of this video has definitely done his job. Using footage of the duo performing the song to a predominantly white and female audience, the whole video is done in a sort of mirrored effect which is surprisingly capable of fucking your eyes up, and can also give some shots the same look Givenchy (and Kanye) have been all over as of late.
Furthermore, it would appear the video finally puts to rest all the “that shit cray/kray/crazy” rumours as the lyrics purposely pop up on screen around the 1:40 mark.
The video can be seen in full below, but as mentioned before, there is an official epilepsy warning on this so definitely be careful.
