No Church In The Wild Review

Directed by Romain Gavras (who also directed what may be the best video of the year “Bad Girls” by MIA), the video for Kanye and Jay’s single “No Church In The Wild” is pretty dope. Jay & Ye don’t make an appearance in the actual video, and neither does Frank Ocean or The Dream, but it does include a lot of powerful imagery.

To me it resembles the riots in London that took place last summer. Some people suggested the Occupy movement on Wall Street in NYC that Kanye had a small interest in. Regardless, the video shows protesters throughout Prague (where the video was shot) fighting police in a battle for the streets. The videography for ‘No Church’ is amazing. Simple as that.

Am I the only one that thought of the “Run This Town” video after watching this?
