Grammy-winning rappers Jay-Z and Kanye West‘s long-awaited “No Church In The Wild” music video premiered as scheduled Tuesday (May 29) night, showcasing The Throne‘s street war-theme come to life.
The Romain Gavras-directed video, Young Hov and Yeezy present viewers with a classic scene of citizens versus government.
The new clip, directed Romain Gavras, was shot in Prague and offers up scenes of police in riot gear beating down protestors. Later in the video, the mob runs wild, toppling cars, setting them on fire, and challenging law enforcement officials on horseback. It concludes with lasers, a seemingly enraged elephant, and people on fire. Somehow, despite the chaos, it’s all very danceable. What does it all mean? Is it Occupy Wall Street gone wild? The Zombie Apocalypse? Or folks looking to get tickets for a Jay-Z/Kanye West tour? Take a look and decide for yourself. (Wall Street Journal)
Over Memorial Day Weekend, the director revealed their music video’s premiere date.
If you’re battling post-Memorial Day hangovers tomorrow, the cure may come in the form of a new cinematic element from The Throne. According to the film’s director, Romain Gavras the “No Church In The Wild” visual will debut tomorrow. “My new video for jay z and kanye is out tomorrow. #nochurchinthewild” No word as to whether or not Jay or Kanye or even Frank Ocean will appear in the highly anticipated visual.

Recently in London, Jay and Yeezy gave fans a sneak peek at the music video.
During their performance last night at London’s 02 Arena, and after playing an inspirational clip set to Louis Armstrong‘s “What a Wonderful World,” Jay-Z and Kanye West played what appears to be a preview of the visuals for “No Church in the Wild,” the Frank Ocean-featuring opening track from Watch the Throne. In the clip, we get (again, what appears to be) Mr. West throwing a flame in slow-motion in some sort of post-apocalyptic society. Hopefully we’ll get the real deal within a next few days, but until then, watch the (very, very loud) clip. (Prefix Mag)
Earlier this month, behind-the-scenes footage from the music video set emerged.
Jay-Z, Kanye West and Frank Ocean take to the street of Prague Czech Republic to begin filming the music video for No church in The Wild, which is off the new hot collaborative album ‘Watch The Throne’. In the filming scenes, two horses carrying police officers are charging down the foggy and cloudy streets with the look of a tough force. This music video is bound to go viral and will definitely receive positive responses from fans, who already love the amazing album and music from these talented artists. (Stupid Dope)
