Life beyond style

Over the weekend, JAY-Z dropped yet another stunning visual accompaniment behind his new album 4:44. His latest video was for the James Blake-featuring track “MaNyfaCedGod,” and starred Academy-Award winner Lupita Nyong’o. And just like the previous visuals, JAY has now shared a behind-the-scenes footnotes video providing deeper context for the track. Watch it below via TIDAL.

This latest entry in the 4:44 footnotes series delves into the topic of mental health, with JAY discussing the stigmas surrounding members of the black community. “We can’t go to get therapists,” he says, “You crazy at that point. It’s like, ‘A psychiatrist? You crazy.'” The video also sees comments from the likes of Chris Rock, Trevor Noah, Meek Mill and Michael B. Jordan.
