Who gon' stop them, huh? 'Cause if nobody steps up to do the job, there's a distinct chance Jay-Z and Kanye West will be performing nothing but current Watch the Throne hit "Niggas in Paris" until they're rapping wherever ultra-rich people get to live instead of a nursing home.

According to Rap Radar and the fan video below, the Throne duo played the song nine times in a row last night at the end of their second show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Nine times! At the album version's three-minute, 40-second length, that's more than a half hour of nothing but a song you've already heard a million times — that'd be, like, well on your way to two full episodes of Arrested Development on Netflix! "A glorious occasion ... a record-setting evening ... it's so magnificent," raved the proud multimillionaires from the stage.

As LA Weekly notes, Hova and Yeezy have been performing "Niggas in Paris" an escalating number of times as they criss-cross the nation — though not, oddly, on the first night of the tour, in Atlanta (read our live review here). Last night was "the record" so far, but how long can Jay-Z and West — or their fans — keep on going like this? We suffer for fashion or whatever (nobody knows what it means, but we guess it's provocative?):
