No Church In The Wild - Jay-Z & Kanye West ft. Frank Ocean


Watch The Throne was my favorite album last summer, uniting two hip hop legends like Jay-Z & Kanye to produce a pretty great record. One of the hottest tracks on the album had to be 'No Church In The Wild'. The beat is bananas, the lyrics are fantastic, and Frank Ocean's street sounding R&B sound complete a perfect track. It has such an ominous beat that it has become the "it" song for movie trailers since last summer, featuring prominently in the Denzel Washington/Ryan Reynolds film Safe House & the upcoming Leonardo DiCaprio version of The Great Gatsby (Huh... wtf?). So it seemed fitting for the crew to reach out to Romain Gravas, who has a knack for making music videos that may only be 4 minutes long but are like full length movies. This one is full of drama and intensity. Plus I love that they used the unedited version of the song for the video. Check it out embedded after the jump....
