“Ni**as in Paris,” the most popular song from Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne, is a catchy eff-you anthem, a tongue-wag for troubled times. Sure, the song has earned countless radio spins and iTunes buys (and hit Number Six on the Billboard Hot 100), but it’s also become the duo’s signature live song on their Watch the Throne tour: They performed it three times in New York and six times in Miami, and when they got to Los Angeles, on December 14th, they performed it 10 times – eclipsed only by their efforts in Vancouver three nights later (11!). Just when it seemed like the madness would never end – an entire night of “Ni**as in Paris,” perhaps? – the tour ended on Sunday. Still, the numbers live on.

CHICAGO (AP) — Derrick Rose says there isn’t much that excites him. A maximum contract extension, though, just might.
The reigning MVP agreed to a five-year contract extension with the Chicago Bulls worth approximately $94 million, a person familiar with the situation said.
The Chicago Tribune, citing anonymous sources, first reported the deal.
The person spoke to the Associated Press on the condition of anonymity Tuesday night because the deal had not been finalized. The extension will start in the 2012-13 season, when Rose is eligible to make about $16 million. The Bulls have scheduled a news conference on Wednesday, though they won’t say what it is for.
“It’s something big, but I think I want to talk more about it (Wednesday), with my family and everybody being there,” the Bulls’ star point guard said after the Bulls’ preseason game Tuesday night. “But it’s definitely something big.”
And, teammates say, it was well-earned.
“We’re all very excited for him,” Carlos Boozer said. “He deserves it. He puts in a lot of effort. I wish the contract was for 10 years.” Continue reading
