Watch Hermon Mehari and friends do an acoustic rendition of ‘Niggas in Paris’
The ‘Ye/Jay show in November really challenged my listening threshold for the Watch the Throne jam “Niggas in Paris.” But here’s a fresh local take on the song, courtesy of trumpeter Hermon Mehari, Brad Williams and Ben Leifer. It’s note-for-note, and they pretend to be in France, even though they’re obviously at Broadway Cafe and the tennis courts at Loose Park. It’s charming. Watch.
