Tune in and turn up

Leading on from the release of JAY-Z’s astonishing thirteenth studio album, 4:44, a video for one of the project’s strongest tracks has just surfaced online and references controversial ethical issues highlighted in the entertainment industry between the ’30s and ’50s.

Somewhat reminiscent of a group of Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons known as the Censored Eleven, the latest video for “The Story of O.J.” is one of provocative proportions and portrays JAY-Z as a disgruntled New Yorker by the name of “Jaybo” battling his way through life as many others do in The Big Apple. Enjoy the video above and let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.

You can now stream JAY-Z’s latest album here.
