Will Ferrell “Blades Of Glory” Sampled For Kanye West Jay-Z Song “Niggas In Paris”

If the fight scene in “The Anchorman” didn’t give Will Ferrell instant street cred, then being sampled by Jay-Z and Kanye West has to.  Ferrell voice as figure skater Chaz Michael Michaels and the voice of co-star Jon Heder were taken from the movie “Blades of Glory” and used in the song “Niggas In Paris” off the Jay-Z and Kanye West album “Watch The Throne“.

“We’re gonna skate to one song and one song only.”  – Chaz Michael Michaels

“I don’t even know what that means” –  Jimmy MacElroy

“No one knows what it means, but it’s provocative.” – Chaz Michael Michaels

“No it’s not it’s gross” –  Jimmy MacElroy

“It gets the people going” – Chaz Michael Michaels

When asked about the collaboration Ferrell said,

Kanye reached out to me and I said, ‘Of course,’ I was completely flattered when they asked if they could sample me into the song … and when I heard it for the first time, I just started to laugh because it felt so surreal. But I really did like the song.”

Here’s the film clip used for the song…

Here’s a cool photo the Jay-Z and Ferrell.
