Jay-Z & Kanye West – N*ggas In Paris (live)

I got a chance to see one of my most anticipated tours recently when The Throne touched down in San Jose for one night. The concert was groundbreaking in that Jay and Kanye separated themselves from hip-hop act or MCs to full-on performers. This concert from production, setlist, staging, and confidence was at the level of U2, Coldplay, or The Who. Much like on the album, Jay was the more reserved elder statesman when compared to the emotional, relationship-driven Kanye on stage. What did strike me though was that although Jay has more classics and icon in the game, it was clear that Kanye was more popular and who the crowd came to see/enjoy.

The vid above is of them ending the night with the anthemic “N*ggas in Paris”. Unlike LA’s 10 times in a row, we only heard it 3 times.
