The US rapper’s new album is also now available to stream for all Tidal users.
Jay-Z has shared the first episode of Footnotes For ‘The Story of O.J.’ – a new visual to coincide with the release of his album 4:44.
The eight-minute video features commentary about racism and social injustice from the 4:44 rapper, along with CNN’s Van Jones, Will Smith, Kendrick Lamar, Chris Rock, Trevor Noah, Mahershala Ali, Michael B. Jordan and more.
“Being Black in America is like being in a tiny, compressed box anchored at the bottom of the ocean with like 10,000 pounds of pressure on you at all times,” says Jordan. Towards the end of The Story of O.J., a teaser reveals that the music video for the album’s title track is coming on Friday (July 7).
The Blueprint artist has dropped a number of videos to accompany the LP, including an animated video for ‘The Story of O.J.’, which was co-directed by ’99 Problems’ director Mark Romanek.
