Who Will Win: Jay-Z and Kanye West - "Paris"
Who Should Win: Jay-Z and Kanye West - "Paris"
Even though I’m jealous of Drake’s adult bar mitzvah in “HYFR,” Kanye West's sweet ride in “Mercy” and Nicki Minaj’s toned rear in “Beez in the Trap,” “Paris” is hands down the best hip-hop video this year. Not only is the track most representative of the category, the visuals from the Watch the Throne tour featured in the clip make this video the most fun to watch. It’s a great hip-hop song with an equally great video.
