Jay-Z & Kanye West - “No Church in the Wild” Video

Young revolutionaries pack the streets of Prague in the video for Watch The Throne opener “No Church In The Wild,” a clip is pretty much the opposite of the “Otis” video. There’s a lot of slow-mo Molotov cocktail throwing and long pans on marble statues. It looks expensive; it’s basically the palatial version of 2 Chainz’ “Riot” video. Romain Gavras (M.I.A.’s “Born Free“) directs. Watch it below.

Watch The Throne is out now on Def Jam/Roc-A-Fella/Roc Nation and available at eMusic. So, real talk. Where does “No Church In The Wild” work better? In the official video or in the trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby?

  1. I must say love or hate or even ignore him Kanye is really pushing rap as far as the beats go…He may in short be making Rap futuristic adding other sounds and not just depending heavily on the same play out funk beats. He is sort of like Hip Hop meets say Depeche Mode and The Dust Brothers all roll into one.

    • He makes me think he’s the Rush of hip-hop. Everything’s bombast and over-the-top, definitely has a futuristic vibe to it. Just minus all the cool, sci-fi lyrics of course. Depeche Mode also rings a bell.

  2. I love how everyone just relates this song to Kanye West and not Jay-Z. Love them both but lets not act like Yeezy isnt King. Know that!

  3. this song is featured heavily in an early trailer for the Baz Luhrmann adaptation of “The Great Gatsby,” coming out later this year, and I’m not sure how that makes me feel. maybe awesome?
