Jay-Z

Jay-Z "Family Feud" (Ava DuVernay, dir.)

Celebrated film director Ava DuVernay (Selma, A Wrinkle In Time) takes us into the near future where America has been rebooted into greatness thanks to the foresight of some wise and strong founding Mothers.

Featured in the video alongside Jay-Z, Beyonce and their daughter Blue, is a star-studded cast including Thandie Newton, Jessica Chastain, America Ferrera, Mindy Kaling, Michael B Jordan, David Oyelowo, Brie Larson, Rosario Dawson, Rashida Jones and more.

Jay-Z "4:44" (TNEG, dir.)

Not a music video, nor a documentary, but more of an art piece that dips through the subconscious (aka the internet?) with dreamy dance sequences, viral vids, archival films, some interview interstitials, but most emotionally, Jay-Z and Beyonce lost in each other as they do their thing on-stage.

Jay-Z Doing "Picasso Baby" for Six Hours In NYC Right Now

Jay-Z is lip-syncing his song "Picasso Baby" for six hours today. Or as it's commonly referred to: He is shooting a music video.

The rapper is at NYC's Pace Gallery today — which has a Picasso connection — doing a marathon shoot for a crowd of fans and celebs.

The stunt is reminiscent of what The National did for "Sorrow" — playing the same song, live, for six hours straight at MOMA PS1 for Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson's cheekily titled show, "A Lot of Sorrow" — but it's already apparent that Jay-Z can take the same basic set-up and turn it into a worldwide, real-time phonenomenon.

Respect.

DEEP INSIDE Jay-Z & Swizz Beats "On To The Next One"

Jay-Z's video for 'On To The Next One' was a game changer - taking hip-hop's affection for shiny things and moving the attention off the obvious brand names and on to post modern pop art. Director Sam Brown created a powerful clip and this caught the attention of fellow director, Trent Babbington, who has created a great series of posts about and around 'On To The Next One.' 

Justin Timberlake "Suit And Tie (lyric version)" (Laban Pheidias, Dir.)

Justin Timberlake - Suit & Tie (Lyric Video) ft. JAY Z

When is a lyric video not just a lyric video? When it has the production values of most ordinary videos, stars the artist himself, and that artist is Justin Timberlake on his first record in seven years. Spoiler Alert: He wears a suit and tie. Also, Jay-Z doesn't make an appearance, but I would think it's a guarantee we'll see him rocking his shit tied best when the real video rolls out.
