While conquering international stages during the European leg of their highly successful Watch The Throne tour, Jay-Z and Kanye West unveil their latest visual for “No Church In The Wild.” Helmed by famed director Romain Gavras and featuring Frank Ocean, the visual was filmed in the streets of Prague last month and serves as the third visual impression off the duo’s Grammy award-winning album Watch the Throne following “Otis” and “Ni**as in Paris.” Segments of the video have already been shared during concerts in the UK, but now the full version has emerged in its full glory.

Pitchfork

Like his video for M.I.A.’s “Born Free”, director Romain Gavras‘s clip for Jay-Z and Kanye West‘s Watch the Throne track “No Church in the Wild” takes place in a brutal police state. It features a mob taking on the authorities with Molotov cocktails, fireworks, lasers, and, randomly, an elephant. Gotta say: Kanye’s “you will not control the threesome”/”never fuck nobody without telling me” verse seems pretty out of place when you’re watching a cop get set on fire.

All in all, a big change from the Greaty Gatsby trailer.
