Mike Patton Is The Only White Boy Who Could Get Away With Covering "Niggas In Paris"
If you follow hip hop at all, certainly you are aware of the Jay-Z and Kanye West collaboration, Watch The Throne. Living in New York City, the album has been inescapable, especially the biggest single from the album, "Niggas In Paris." I have to admit, the silly beat is incredibly infectious and has gotten stuck in my head more than once. Clearly, it's had an effect on Mike Patton as well, who's been whipping out his own rendition of the song on tour, and, as usual, nailing it. Patton loves pop, as evidenced by FNM covering Lady Gaga a few years ago, when "Poker Face" was all the rage. Kudos, Mike!
