After going platinum in less than a week, JAY-Z delivered two very unorthodox views.
This first video was for JAY’s “The Story of O.J.” track, which has an old-timey animated setting and addresses various symbols of racism that black people have encountered. When paired with the track, the video is one of the most effective visual representations I’ve seen in a while.
The second video was for the “4:44” track, and uses various viral videos which can be interpreted as metaphors for JAY’s rocky relation ship with Beyoncé. The concept for this video is just as advanced as the music.
