Single Cover: Jay-Z x Kanye West – ‘Ni**as in Paris’

Jay-Z and Kanye West rep for the red, white, and blue on the official cover of “Ni**as in Paris,” the next single off Watch the Throne. The dynamic duo continues the patriotic theme found on their “Otis” artwork.

Hit-Boy produced the beat in New York and Jay and Kanye laid their verses in the City of Light. “The energy of the track, I feel like as soon as you hear it, it’s one of those joints and I always felt that from day one,” the 24-year-old beatmaker told Rap-Up TV.

“I actually did ‘Christmas in Harlem’ for Kanye West too and that was our first musical collaboration. After that, he just flew me out to work and we were working on a bunch of stuff. It wasn’t for any particular project, and that was one of the joints that came up. It ended up turning into what it is.”
