Jay-Z and Kanye West Release “Niggas in Paris” Music Video:
After giving us a classic music video for “Otis” (watch here), The Throne has returned with a new visual for their ridiculous, ubiquitous hit “Niggas in Paris“. Directed by Kanye West, the video may initially fool you into believing it is just another normal concert footage video, but when have Kanye or Jay-Z ever done anything normal? The video merges pristine HD footage from one of the California stops on The Watch The Throne Tour with well produced special effects to create a dizzying hip hop spectacle.

Chris Rock is Inspired by Watch The Throne Tour, Wants to Tour With Dave Chappelle:
Chris Rock chatted with the entertainment blog Vulture about his idea to do a joint tour with fellow mega comedian Dave Chappelle. Though the possibility of a tour has been mulled around before, it gained new life when Rock saw Jay-Z and Kanye West perform on the Watch The Throne tour:
“I’ve been talking to Chappelle a lot. Been trying to get Chappelle to go on tour. You know I’m not the hard one laughing. But I’m trying to make that happen. After seeing Kanye and Jay-Z, I was like, ‘Me and Dave should do this.”
Rock and Chappelle are legends of stand-up, and any tour they did together would surely be a historic event for comedy. Do you think it will happen? Let us know your thoughts @DubJ, @CollegeDJ, and LIKE and comment this post on Facebook.
