Watch The Throneâ€™s â€œNiggas In Parisâ€ is one of my favorite records on the album. Featuring a sample from his 2007 Blades Of Glory film, actor Will Ferrell tells MTV he was flattered by his two appearances on the track.
Kanye reached out to me and I said, â€˜Of courseâ€™ I was completely flattered when they asked if they could sample me into the song â€¦ and when I heard it for the first time, I just started to laugh because it felt so surreal. But I really did like the song.
We were trying to film a piece that they would use on the video boards of their concert, but havenâ€™t gotten it together â€” and the whole process has opened his eyes to an entirely new career opportunity: Being the go-to sample guy on the hip hop circuit. I think [something from] â€˜Step Brothersâ€™ would be good [to use in a song]. Or the Woody Allen movie I did, â€˜Melinda and Melinda.â€™
