Jay-Z & Kanye West's - "No Church In The Wild" Video Directed by Romain Garvras

The Throne has delivered as promised, as Jay-Z and Kanye West have premiered their new video for “No Church In The Wild.” The song serves as the seventh single from the rap duo’s collaboration, Watch The Throne ( iTunes / Amazon ), and features vocals from OFWGKTA singer/songwriter Frank Ocean .

Filmed in Prague, Czech Republic — French director Romain Gavras ( M.I.A. ‘s “Bad Girls” video ) finds inspiration in last year’s multitude of global protests and riots, including the Arab Spring – sparked by Egypt’s 2011 Revolution , and the Occupy movement that spread throughout North America and Europe. We’re thrust into the visuals at the climax of violence, which seems to end in favor of the protesters.

Enjoy the video below and get ready for a Watch The Throne prequel in the future.
