Kanye West & Jay-Z must be proud.
When they released Watch The Throne, Kanye West and Jay-Z had to have predicted the impact the album would have on the world. Jay and Ye are two of the most iconic rappers to ever step foot on a stage and their team-up was a moment to add to the history books. Their relationship may be strained in 2019 but Mr. West has been teasing a sequel to the collaborative project, tweeting out “Watch The Throne 2” on several occasions. Will it ever be released? Who knows… One thing is for sure though, WTT still bangs to this day. Just ask Will Smith.

The most well-known song from the collection, “N***as In Paris,” is one of the most popular tracks from both artists’ discographies. Many of us remember the times the duo would perform it live seven times in a row during their joint tour, recalling better days in their brotherly bond. The song has a very simple meaning to Kanye West, who has famously said that he wrote it because “n***as was in Paris.” When Will Smith took a trip to the French city, he made sure to pull out his best dance moves in front of the Eiffel Tower as the song played.
“I’m in Paris right now,” said the actor in his throwback video yesterday. After showing off the view, Will flexed some very fatherly dance moves next to an animated robot. You need to watch this, seriously.
