This “Ni**as in Paris” Spoof Swags Bookshops Out

Books, right? They’re so sexy. Sometimes you probably sit and think of all the things you could do to a book. Stroke it. Finger it…s pages. Use it to fan yourself once you get done with sexytimes. They’re not meant just for reading. Oh, no. Books are meant for stunting on hoes and that’s exactly what La Shea Delaney and Annabelle Quezada do in B*tches in Bookshops.” This video is the nerdiest possible take on my jam of all jams, Kanye West and Jay-Z‘s “Niggas in Paris.” It brings forth two attractive women rapping about books which the whole entire world, literary and other, should appreciate.

Brittani Nichols is a Los Angeles based comedy person. When she's not tweeting about white people or watching television, she's probably eating pizza. Actually, she's probably doing all three of those things concurrently and when she's not doing THAT, she's sleeping. Brittani also went to Yale and feels weird about mentioning it but wants you to know.

  1. “Books are meant for stunting on hoes.” My school teacher always said that and I never believed it, until now. You’ve made me believe.

    And I think singing the entire “I am now marking this page…don’t let me forget this page” part really intensely every single time I put an unfinished book down is going to be added to my collection of habits that will ensure I stay alone forever. I love it.
