Kanye West Wanted 'Nigga' In Every 'Watch The Throne' Song Title

By HHL Editors

Six years later, it's safe to say that 'Niggas In Paris' is the biggest hit from the Kanye West Jay Z collaborative album Watch The Throne.

The n-bomb in its title also made the track the album's biggest challenge for radio stations and websites.

If it was up to 'Ye, the whole album would have posed a challenge.

On his podcast, journalist David Cho explained that Jay wanted to call 'Niggas in Paris' 'Ball So Hard.' But 'Ye pushed for the eventual title."

"We're gonna put the n-word in every single title on this album so everyone has to say it and they have to confront it," West said, according to Cho.
Since 'Niggas In Paris' is the only track on the album with the n-word in the title, Cho assumes Hov convinced 'Ye to compromise his vision down a bit.
