UPDATE: Jay-Z's "The Story of O.J." Video is Now Available To Watch on Youtube
UPDATE: Hov’s poignant and political animated video for 4:44 cut “The Story of O.J.” has officially sprung loose of its TIDAL exclusivity. Scroll on to peep the visual below sans subscription.
The first official video from JAY-Z’s 4:44 album is for “The Story of O.J.,” the second song on the project.
The video, which was directed by Mark Romanek and Jay himself, is completely animated. The song samples a Nina Simone record, so it’s not surprising that the video features a lot of dark, racially charged images.
We personally saw JAY-Z shoot a video in Brooklyn the other day. So it’s safe to say that we should expect to see more visuals pop up soon.
Check out the video for “The Story of O.J.” below.
