“No Church in the Wild,” was shot by French director Romain Gavras in Prague, Czech Republic this past April. The song is on their “Watch the Throne,” album and features Frank Ocean on the hook. You may recognize the song from Denzel Washington’s thriller “SafeHouse,” and it is the theme song for the upcoming re-make of The Great Gatsby starring Leonardo Di Caprio and Tobey Maguire. Neither Kanye or Jay-Z appear in the video (unfortunatley), but it is clear that they were trying to make a statement about war. They used over 200 extras to create a war zone and the elephant, lasers, and fire help create the drama. It’s sad that this kind of violence really happens all over the world and even in some cases in the U.S. during protests. Interesting choice as always Kanye and Jay.
