Kanye West And Jay-Z REVISIT Kanye’s Chicago Birthplace+ The Throne SHOOT “Ni**as In Paris” At The Staples Center
We told you earlier about Kanye West taking Jay-Z back to the Chicago neighborhood where he was born, and now there is video documenting the visit. Watch the short film inside and find out about the next video from Watch The Throne…..
With a short film taped for VOYR, Kanye West took Jay-Z back to Chicago’s southside….where it all began for him. While strolling through places he frequented as a child, he said,
“Always knew it was gonna happen like this. Where I’m at right now is where I’m at when I was like four years old.”
The clip also features spoken word from Chicago poet Malik Yusef and a backstage conversation between ‘Ye andSpike Lee.
And in other Throne news, the duo are at the Staples Center today (ahead of their 3rd concert there tonight) shooting the video for “Ni**as In Paris.” Guess they’re not going back to the City of Lights for it afterall.

SIDEBAR: It’s ironic that Mystikal would link with Cash Money since they put out the CLASSIC Mystikal diss record “Drag ‘Em To The River” by UNLV way back in the day.
