Napoleon Dynamite star Jon Heder spoke with FUSE about being sampled on Jay and ‘Ye’s smash hit “Niggas in Paris.”
The Watch The Throne track, which currently sits at No.1 on the Billboard rap chart, features a sample of the Jon Heder and Will Ferrell film Blades Of Glory. Heder’s voice can be heard on the track shrieking “I don’t even know what that means!”
Heder told Fuse: “I actually heard about it after the fact. Then I called up my manager like ‘What’s going on here? Is there some kind of compensation happening?’ He was like ‘Whatever, the glory of the song is your compensation Jon. Listen to it.’
After listening to the song, he thought it was smooth. “I am like one of those in Paris,” he said. Holding true to his Blades Of Glory role, Jon isn’t exactly sure what it means but he likes it.
“I’m not quite sure what the connection is but I feel very but I feel very honored. It’s a compliment right?” Well, at least we know it’s provocative! –Jazmine Gray
