'N****s In Paris' Video: Kanye West And Jay-Z Drop Visuals For Watch The Throne Track (VIDEO)

It's a song they played 168 times while on their Watch The Throne tour, and now it has a video.

Kanye West and Jay-Z have released the video for "N****s In Paris," their anthemic how-you-like-me-now hit off the star rappers' duets album.

The video -- which West directed -- starts with footage of the duo's Los Angeles performance, a decision that was perhaps made to honor the number of times they rapped the song live (10 consecutive times at the show in question). From there, the video becomes a mix of special effects (primarily of the kaleidoscopic variety) and concert footage.

Jay-Z, of course, has been dominating headlines this week with two star-studded nights at New York's famed Carnegie Hall. His wife, Beyonce, made her first post-pregnancy appearance at the first night of the Carnegie shows.

Both rappers won nominations for this Sunday's Grammy Awards. West is nominated for a leading seven awards, including his single "All Of The Lights" and My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Both stars are nominated for Watch The Throne and "Otis," a track off the album.
