What niggas did in Paris, got 'em hanging off the Eiffel

from Kanye West (Ft. Big Sean & Jay Z) – Clique Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

A reference to the extremely discussed track by Kanye and Jay Z, “Niggas in Paris.” Kanye is saying that what him and his clique did in Paris (and around the world for that matter) will make their enemies commit suicide. A good portion of Watch the Throne was recorded in hotels in Paris, so the line is fitting. In fact, the record number of times that “Niggas In Paris” was performed was at the Paris performance of the Watch the Throne European tour.

G.O.O.D. Music and company have people partying all over the world. Recently Kanye and G.O.O.D. were in France to debut their seven-screened, 30-minute short film Cruel Summer for the album at the Cannes Film Festival in the aforementioned city.

Although Big Sean had no part in “Niggas in Paris,” he mentions being in Paris in the track “Mercy,” which fittingly is by Kanye West.

Common had a similar line in “Southside”.

This line is also referring to the civil rights era of American history where Black people were hung by mobs of white people i.e. apple pie america, the KKK, lynch mobs. They were hung a lot of times for no reason at all, or for doing things like whistling or looking at white woman. So Kanye is saying the song “Niggas in Paris”.
