“It’s what you all been waiting for, ain’t it?” (C) ‘Ye

According to a source at Vevo, Kanye West & Jay-Z’s long-awaited video for their massive smash “N**** In Paris” is set to drop sometime this week. No exact date or time was given, but it appears it will happen before Friday. About. damn. time.
VOYR brings us episode seven (I think I have those numbers right), where we go behind the scenes to find Don C giving away tickets and all access passes to a lucky and excited fan.
Ye and Jay wrapped up their Watch The Throne tour by breaking their record of “Paris,” by performing the song an astonishing 11 times last night in Vancouver.
I personally saw “Paris” a total of 36 times throughout their run and it’s apparently working, as “Paris” now occupies the seventh spot on the iTunes charts.
Talks of Jay and ‘Ye taking their Watch The Throne Tour to Europe have swirled for a while now, but it seems as if Spike Lee may have let the cat of out the bag. Spike’s a credible source, right? Only time will tell. European fans, keep your fingers crossed.
Episode Three: Just Kids From Chicago
Follow Yeezy and Co. backstage for the kick-off tour date in Atlanta.
Here’s an interesting tidbit of information for you–Voyr, the company that is putting these pieces together–is owned by the son of legendary Chicago jazz musician Ramsey Lewis.
‘Ye and Jay are about to begin shooting the video for “N***** In Paris” at the Staples Center shortly and above is the first peak at what’s about to go down. Looks like someone’s early. Ha!
More after the jump.
Stay tuned, as more flicks are on the way.
Last night at the Staples Center, Jay-Z and Kanye West broke their record for “Paris.” Chicago was currently the reigning champ with eight, and The Throne trumped that last night with nine. With only four more dates on the tour will the duo go for 10?
“It depends on how this thing finishes up,” Jay said in reference to his and Kanye’s current Watch the Throne Tour. “We — I say ‘we’ because I’m in Throne mode — we’re in a great place creatively. You might see a Jay, then Kanye and a Throne album next year. You know, we’re really in a great place creatively. We really found our zone.”
Anyhoo, Kanye West brought home two awards alongside Jay-Z for Classic Album of the Year (Watch The Throne), and Club Banger of the Year (“Paris”). Hit the jump to see a full list of last night’s winners.
