The full video for Jay-Z’s new single “Run This Town” has been leaked and we’ve got it just for you. Don’t you feel special?
When we saw shots of the set last week, we thought this might have a Mad-Max feel a la “California Love.” There would have been nothing wrong with that (it worked for ’Pac), but we were pleasantly surprised to see that the visuals were as sharp and striking as the beats.
Hov starred in "Run This Town" as the leader of an imposing army of hip-hop heads with Rihanna and Kanye West serving as his loyal lieutenants. A very prominent theme of rebellion ran throughout the video. Although, we’re not sure what they were supposed to be overthrowing, this video was still on point.
