Video: Jay-Z feat. Rihanna & Kanye West – Run This Town

MTV Germany already aired the video, so fuck waiting until tomorrow to watch it.

Having a world premiere now has become just that… forget being first with anything in this day and age. This sort of reminds me of the good old days before everything was an exclusive and every video had a watermark – when people actually did shit to be a part of something.

Look out for Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3 in stores on September 11th.

    hip-hop is the only genre that forces out the older guys……….. Now that being said most of the older dudes (a la LL Cool J etc..) Started making shitty music but this JAy-Z stuff is at least still acceptable…..

  7. teddy Says:

    this song was disapointing (sucked) for so many reasons ( 1.jays verse is probably the worst verse iv ever heard him spit its so below even his sub verse of late 2. kanye has not ony a better verse then jay but more mic presense…tha fuk? when fish fly right. now i know how the first generation to see man in space felt when they said never thought id see that in my lifetime 3. this song is a carbon clone a bad one at that of t.i. – live your life 3. the other bp3 single also was disapointing (sukced) with a disapointing video ) and now we are blessed with a disapointng (hot garbage) video to go with the song i think this video this video actually probably makes the song worse than if u jus experiance it sonically couldn’t they have done something that wasn’t basically the exact same video as califonia love..sigh hopefully bp3 will be good cos a 3rd consequtive disapointing album from hov would just be smh

    2pac’s video was a remake of mad max the movie. This is a video is not a remake of the movie

  14. Unfaded emcee Says:

    It’s cool, once again though, too much hype surrounded it, so I’m not moved

    *yawns*… clap clap

  16. SaiGiddy Says:

    Wow. Basura.

    Before the Jay stans try and get me, be real with yourself. This video was garbage and give it a French pronunciation if it makes you feel better..you know garbachh…

    Remember when a world exclusive meant an ill video? Kanye came out with ill videos on his dime and shit was poppin. Wtf? Kid Cudi did a better video than this. This is a horrible mash up of “california love, disturbia, live your life” chose how many other videos like this. Lyrics sounded like they were taken from other songs of the cutting room floor…these verses made no sense to me what so ever, didn’t make me want to bop to it. There is no soul, no emotion in this song. What is the purpose?

    He ain’t giving it his all anymore, he’s not hungry. When he was hungry he did better. His music was about something even if it was cocky shit.

    And for the record, I’m a little tired of Rhi Rhi and before her stans get at me I purchased PHYSICAL COPIES of her previous work. So I was down before she became famous as hell. But in my opinion, she should have come out for dolo when her album was ready.

    I’m not hating. I’m just being realistic here.

    These are the Lyrics to the song that some of you think is sooo hard. Look up what the Masons mean and what they stand for. Time is almost up. This is a Deception. NOW. Read Revelations. Use Discenment when listening to Music. Knowledge is Key. Ask God for understanding and wisdom. God is good….. All the time. And all the time God is Good.
