Will Ferrell On “Niggas In Paris” Cameo

The Throne’s “Niggas In Paris” sure gets the people going. As we all know, the track features a sample from actor Will Ferrell’s 2007 film Blades Of Glory. In an interview with MTV, Will was flattered by his appearance on the track.

Kanye reached out to me and I said, ‘Of course’ I was completely flattered when they asked if they could sample me into the song … and when I heard it for the first time, I just started to laugh because it felt so surreal. But I really did like the song. 

We were trying to film a piece that they would use on the video boards of their concert, but haven’t gotten it together — and the whole process has opened his eyes to an entirely new career opportunity: Being the go-to sample guy on the hip hop circuit. I think [something from] ‘Step Brothers’ would be good [to use in a song]. Or the Woody Allen movie I did, ‘Melinda and Melinda.’

    Its funny how Kanye alone with no hit singles sells the same as Kanye West AND JAY-Z together with HUGE Buzz

    Kanye West: 496,000 copies

    Kanye West & Jay-Z: 436,000 copies

    is it possible Kanye West fans don’t really like Jay-Z? weird shit

    I’m sure Will Ferrell would love this song because he strikes me as a comedian that harbors prejudicial emotions for black culture. Every time I see him mimic black swag in his characterizations of hip hop, he behaves like he is mocking monkeys in a jungle smirking a snide sarcastic jest that bespeaks of hilarity exploiting buffoonery. White people who that think they are better than black people pride themselves on knowing enough black history to give them the inferiority complex they overcompensate with racism. Perhaps he knows that the city of Paris is named after a Nigga, a black goddess Isis. The Notre Dame, which means the grand woman was called such because the grand woman that was worship in that cathedral was the goddess Isis who was worshiped extensively throughout the city, so much so that the city was named the house of Isis, Para Isidos, or Paris for short. White supremist know things like this and laugh at dumb niggas who don’t know their own history and make songs to exploit their ignorance. Jay-Z and Kanye say they are acting like gorillas in Paris, when they should be acting like the gods they come from that founded the city.

    You logic is idiotic. The question is “do jay-z fans really like Kanye West?” BP3 sold 496K the first week and eventually sold 1.9 mil. So an even better question “how much overlap is there between Kanye and Jay?”

    I don’t think we can answer any of these questions by looking at these numbers. Best to just congratulate them on a commercially success album.

    If you start judging these rappers by album sales you are going to find yourself in an odd place. Who even goes platinum anymore?
    Eminem (4 mil)
    Jay-Z (1.9 mil)
    Lil Wayne (1.6 mil and counting)
    Nicki Minaj (1.5 mil)
    Drake (1.4 Mil)
    Kanye West (1.2 mil)
    Jay-Z & Kanye (1 mil)

    You might put a few other rappers up there is you want to forget about there last albums for whatever reason (TI because he was in jail during his last album, etc). I would have put 50 up there, but that was a long time ago.

    I think we better stop talking about sales. Especially if are going to attack someone on the list for not selling as much as they use to.

    You do know that BP3 almost doubled MBDTFs sales right? Use your fcking brain. They released an album WITHOUT promotion, without a video, without a single interview except the one with jay 10 min on Angie and the last but not least first single didnt even have a hook. And it was iTunes exclusive.

    You wanna compare that to the promotion of BP3 and mbdtf?

    I find it funny u black people continue to refer to yourselvs as niggas knowing the term was givin to u as a lable by slave owners.. Everytime u say nigga this nigga that really your holding your selves back and showing society how idiotic your guys really are.. U made a culture of ignorance and greed.. Cash.hoes.pimps.killing.stealing.gangs.anti education. After mlk marched and malcom spoke. What have black people done for rights? Hiphop has set the black race back a couple hundred year but little tar babies don’t care because they much rather wear ther pants below ther knees and not give a fuck.. But then again that’s why blacks make up our prison systems.

    let me tell you my theory on all the shit you just said dude talkin about “lacks using nigga”
    To me african americans didnt have such an easy start in america. Whites already walked free and were born into what i would say normal living conditions. Alot of blacks from quite sometime in early america were born into slavery and owning nothin. I believe this may explain to me why it seems white people have a head start on african americans. Now with more of them being born into somewhat of normal living conditions the start of there lives are more like a normal growing experience as with alot of African american they are born with nothing and the start of there lives is a growing experience as well as a struggle.

    I know people say it happend SOO many years ago but who knows how long things like that are supposed to effect a race. whos the judge of that. that issue has weighed on African americans since. of course alot of times not directly but signs that those things went on in the races past show up all the time. and your crazy to think that word nigga is only used from one black person to another. im mixed and had the opportunity to have been thought of as fully white and heard the amount of all races that use that word. as well as been looked at as “enough” black to be called a nigger. Ive been everywhere from the wild streets of baltimore to the suburbs real houswives of atlanta shit. its everywhere.

    Oh and ive seen all races wear there pants below the waist line. the white boy messiah was on tv wearing his pants low. its an all race affair. as far as blacks being held back….Obama.
