For the biggest touring spectacle known to mankind (Jay-Z and Kanye West, natch), one song has become a story. On tour, the dynamic duo been hamming (not H.A.M.-ing) it up by closing their sets out with "Ni**as In Paris" in a nearly endless loop, replaying it upwards of ten breathless times during their encore before, fatigued or at least satisfied that everyone in the building knows about their exploits in the City of Light, retreat from the stage to their gold-plated dressing rooms.

Numerous news outlets have been tracking the song's progressing role as the centerpiece of their show, but our friends at affiliated publication L.A. Weekly, appear to have the most up-to-date rundown, with which we can most accurately predict the number of times said song will be repeated. The list goes as follows:

*October 29, Atlanta: Three times

*November 2, Philadelphia: One time

*November 3, Washington D.C.: Four times

*November 6, East Rutherford: Four times

*November 15, Miami: Five times

*November 21, Boston: Six times

?*November 22, Montreal: Five times

*November 23, Toronto: Two times

*November 26, Detroit: Seven times

*November 27, Pittsburgh: Five times

*November 29, Kansas City: Five times

*November 30, Chicago: Eight times

*December 5, Houston: Five times

*December 6, Dallas: Four times

Using those numbers, writer Ben Westhoff concluded they would see precisely six point five "Niggas In Paris"s at the end of each of their three area-shows.? They saw seven, nine, and ten. So, the question is at last posed in the Seattle/Tacoma area: given such unpredictability in the "Ni**as In Paris" market, how many NIPs will we see come tomorrow when they grace the stage at the Tacoma Dome? To get the betting started, I'll throw out the number seven. Hey were at least as good as Detroit, right?
