[WATCH] JAY-Z & KANYE WEST: ‘No Church In The Wild’ ft. FRANK OCEAN

Jay-Z and Kanye West have dropped a video for ‘No Church in the Wild’, the third from last year’s collaborative LP Watch the Throne (following ‘Otis‘ and ‘Niggas in Paris‘). The clip for the Frank Ocean-featuring number is directed by Romain Gavras (known for his work with M.I.A.), who attempts to appropriate the revolutionary spirit of 2011 here, recalling the events of the Arab Spring and the Occupy movement as a mob takes on the authorities in a brutal police state. However, the “provocative” images feel completely out of place in the context of the song (however ominous the track sounds), and the video comes off as a bit lazy with its over-use of slo-mo and misguided narrative.

Watch the video for ‘No Church in the Wild’ below (via P4K).
