Kanye Wanted to Include the N-Word in Every Title of "Watch the Thrown"

So, Kanye & Jay-Z's joint 2011 album, Watch The Throne, could've been crazy controversial if Ye had his way. During an interview with the podcast A Waste of Time, former Grantland publisher and media pioneer, David Cho, shared a funny little story about Kanye originally wanting every song title on the project to include the N-word.   

In Cho's words, Kanye's said, "we’re going to put the n-word in every single title of this album, so everyone has to say it and confront it,’” after Hov wanted "Ni**as in Paris" to be titled "Ball So Hard". THANK GOD that Jay Z was not feeling Kanye's vision. So, Ni**s in Paris ended up being the only track with the n-word in the title.  

You can listen to the full interview below. Cho's comments on Kanye and Hov began at 1:50:00 mark.
