Literally moments ago, Hip-Hop superstar Jay-Z released the video for his smash hit single ‘Empire State of Mind’ off his #1 album ‘The Blueprint 3′. The highly anticipated clip features R&B songstress Alicia Keys.
I love it. The video captures all of the best images of NYC and the black and white effect gives it a very ‘epic’ feel. Although the song has yet to grow on some people, I personally really like it and I can’t think of a better way to translate the energy of the record onto the screen. Like him or not, Jay-Z continues to redefine himself as the #1 Hip-Hop artist time and again. Yup!
