Jay Z Connects With Sprint To Share ‘4:44’ Trailer + New Song “Adnis”
— THE GREY DISTRICT (@TheGreyDistrict) June 19, 2017
Jay Z teases what may be a new project, while partnering Tidal with mobile giant, Sprint.
That boy Hov stays with the magic tricks, don’t he? After building up hype for his mysterious 4:44 campaign, it seems slowly, but surely that all will be revealed. Is it a full-fledged album from Jay Z, detailing his thoughts and feelings post-Lemonade? Well, we have a little bit of insight to glean from this new commercial promoting the God MC’s partnership between Sprint and Tidal.
In the clip, which you can see above, Oscar Award-winner Mahershala Ali is shadow-boxing and training with Danny Glover, while Jay drops a half a minute worth of bars about a “letter to my dad that I never wrote.” With not much known about the project prior to this clip hitting the eStreets, all we knew was that we were hoping it would’ve been a new Jay album and that whatever it was would be dropping on June 30.
Now that the cat is out of the bag, so to speak, we can get down to the brass tacks of speculating who will be joining Hov on this adventure, and what journey will he take us on as an elder statesman of rap. Hopefully, we’ll get the full “Adnis” verse that we can break down before Genius has a swing at it.
Until then, press play on the trailer tease above and share your thoughts with us @Okayplayer.
