[Premiere] Jay-Z & Kanye West | “N*ggas In Paris” [Video]

Jay-Z & Kanye’s “Niggas In Paris” has been blowing up clubs since it was released as a single back in September, so it’s kind of crazy (or “cray” as Kanye would say) that they are just now releasing a video. Filmed at the L.A. Staples Center during the December 13 date of the Watch The Throne Tour, the video is live footage chopped in with insane visuals like panthers, cityscapes, topped off with this mirroring effect. Oh, and keep an eye out for Kanye’s ridiculous leather kilt-thing.

It’s one of the most original (and bizarre) videos I’ve seen in a long time, and I absolutely love it.

WARNING: This video could cause epileptic seizures, so maybe don’t watch it standing up. That shit cray.

Jay-Z & Kanye West feat. Beyoncé | “Lift Off”

Jay-Z and Kanye West’s collaborative album, Watch The Throne, dropped Monday, and “Lift Off,” (featuring Beyonce), will be the third single off the album.

This track follows along with the rest of Watch The Throne, in that everything about it is epic. Huge production, pounding beats, a Beyonce hook, and of course, Kanye auto-tunin’ while Jay throws in a few rhymes.

J. Cole | Friday Night Lights (Mixtape)

J. Cole has been tearing his way up the hip hop ranks over the last two years, and to top it off, he drops his Friday Night Lights mixtape, which features artists like Drake, Wale, Omen, Kanye West, Big Sean, Pusha T and many more. It also features the bomb track “Blow Up,” which we posted a few months ago.

You can snag the entire mixtape for free, here.

Kanye West & Jay-Z feat. La Roux | “That’s My Bitch”

The fact that Kanye West & Jay-Z are making an entire collab album (entitled Watch the Throne) makes me salivate. And the first leaked track, “That’s My Bitch,” already gives me high hopes. It features some electro beats, spit-fire rhymes by both Ye and Jay, and vocals from La Roux front-woman Elly Jackson, who sings the soulful chorus. Oh, and did I mention it was produced by Q-Tip? Hell yes.
