Aziz Ansari is obviously a big fan of Jay-Z and Kanye West and their Watch the Throne collaboration. So much so, in fact, that he seems to spend just about all of his free time engaged in some sort of Watch the Throne-related activity, like making Watch the Throne comics and tweeting about fake Watch the Throne-themed parties aboard commercial airplanes. Being that he’s such a high-profile proponent of the album, it’s little wonder that the duo cast Aziz in their video for “Otis.” It was a pretty genius move, actually, when you really stop and think about it.
Anyway, Ansari has been up to his Watch the Throne tricks again, last night posting a “remix” of “Niggas In Paris” he and his friend Matthew Shawver made using an emoticon app called Emoji to his Tumblr.
At the risk of sounding like a cynic, I wonder how much Emoji paid Ansari to do this?
