The Best "Niggas in Paris" Parody: "Bitches in Bookshops"

“Read so hard libraries tryin’ to find me.” Oh, yes they did. There have been countless parodies and spin-offs of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “Niggas in Paris,” but we feel justified in proclaiming this one the winner. The video finds an adorable pair of ladies, La Shea Delaney and Annabelle Quezada, performing the track as “Bitches in Bookshops,” which leads to some of the most excellent literary boasts we’ve ever heard: “War and Peace? Piece of cake. Read Tolstoy in three days,” for instance, and “You ball so hard? OK, you bowling. I read so hard, I’m JK Rowling.” There’s also a Beauty and the Beast sample. Basically, this is perfect. Watch it and recall how The Marriage Plot got you into Roland Barthes, after the jump.
