Jay-Z and Kanye West have finally dropped the OFFICIAL music video to their smash single ‘N*ggas In Paris.‘
The video for the addictive song, featured on the duo’s ‘Watch The Throne‘ project, features concert tour footage from Jay & Ye’s “Watch the Throne” tour.
Of course by now you’ve heard about the saying ‘that shit KRAY,’ which nearly instantaneously became the catch phrase of the year in hip hop.
The origin of the term “Cray” from the “Niggas in Paris” single off Jay-Z and Kanye West’ “Watch the Throne” album is actually not a shortened form of the word “crazy”, nor is it “cray”, it’s actually “Kray”.
The term is in reference to the schizophrenic twins Ronald and Reginald Kray. The Kray twins were crime lords in London in the 50′s and 60′s and police failed to locate them on numerous occasions, which is where the line “ball so hard, muthafuckas wanna find me, that shit Kray. That shit Kray. That shit Kray”. (source)
At least that’s what “They” say…
Those of us who attended the tour get to relive the event in the the new video, but for those of you that missed it? The video will never do the live performances justice but at least you get a lil bit.
