In the midst of awards season, a newly released mash-up video combines two of 2011’s best pieces of work: Woody Allen’s Midnight and Paris and Yeezy/Jay-Z’s “Niggas in Paris.”
Last Sunday, Watch the Throne’s single “Otis” took home Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song (even though the Throne’s tour notoriously performed “Niggas in Paris” upwards of ten times per show). Midnight in Paris won the Golden Globe for Best Screenplay and is up for Best Picture, Best Direction, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Art Direction at the Academy Awards on the 26th.
A “Niggas in Paris” music video was just released, but I have to hand it to the youtube artist behind this video for putting together a great song with a great film.
Thanks to my friend Lorna for the video link.
