At the rate Kendrick’s been ascending in the hip hop ranks, it was only a matter of time that a collaboration like this would happen. They both bring their A games on this remix with plenty of lyrics that will have you hitting the rewind button. Jay usually dominates any song he’s on but Kendrick’s presence is undeniably as strong here.
Archive footage never felt so fresh. God Forgives I Don’t is out now.
Directed by Romain Gavras. There’s so much in this. Power to the people. Have faith.
I don’t love the use of the word nigga but I’m a fan of what they did with this video.
Directed by Spike Jonze. This video is like a grown mans playground.

For months the buzz has building about ‘Ye and Jay’s collaborative album Watch The Throne and now we have the first offering from it. The beat was made by 19 year old Lex Luger (known mostly for his work with Waka Flocka Flame) and what a beat it is. It’s not often you hear an opera sample in hip hop but that’s what makes this song soar.
By now you’ve probably heard the news that Mr. Electronica is Jay-Z’s latest acquisition to the Roc Nation roster. Consider this a win for lyricists everywhere. They had a party for it last week and let loose The Announcement to give us something to celebrate it to. Then they didn’t waste anytime getting on a song together with Shiny Suit Theory. Gotta love it.
Loving the way they brought back Snap’s I’ve Got The Power towards the end!
