Will Ferrell On N*ggas In Paris Sample

blame it on Shake November 9, 2011

Will Ferrell talks with MTV about Jay-Z and Kanye West’s usage of dialogue from 2007’s Blades of Glory.

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. We were trying to film a piece that they would use on the video boards of their concert, but haven’t gotten it together. I think [something from] Step Brothers would be good [to use in a song]. Or the Woody Allen movie I did, Melinda and Melinda. It makes me feel very good. And completely justified for buying a V-neck sweater made out of nothing but diamonds.
