Will Ferrell Hopes to Be Part of ‘Watch the Throne’ Live Show
Any fan of both comedy and hip-hop recognizes Will Ferrell's contributions to both 'Blades of Glory' and the 'Watch the Throne' hit 'N----s in Paris.' Soon, Ferrell hopes to be part of the album's live show.
"Kanye reached out to me and I said, 'Of course,' " Ferrell said. "I was completely flattered when they asked if they could sample me into the song ... 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."
Ferrell loved the song so much, in fact, that he's working on a video for the tour as well. "We were trying to film a piece that they would use on the video boards of their concert, but haven't gotten it together."
In addition to being both a novelty and a chart staple, the song is good for Ferrell's ego. "It makes me feel very good," he said. "And completely justified for buying a V-neck sweater made out of nothing but diamonds."
It's unclear whether Ferrell would perform his sequences "to one song and one song only," but it's safe to say that whatever he does onstage with Jay and 'Ye will "get the people going."
