This Week’s Streak Of Dope Music Videos Continues With “No Church In The Wild” (Video Breakdown)Posted by Danielle Harling on 05/30/12 | Filed under Refined Video Picks, Kanye West, Video Breakdown, Jay-Z, Frank Ocean
0:00 – It’s great that there’s finally a video for “No Church In The Wild” but when I hear this song I immediately picture Denzel Washington in “Safe House” or Leo and Spiderman in that “The Great Gatsby” trailer.
0:06 – Wait a minute, is this going to be the sequel to the “Run This Town” video?
0:26 – Naked statues and fog, now that's something we clearly need a lot more of in rap videos these days.
0:32 – Could this be Frank Ocean?
0:36 – Why do I get the feeling that Jay-Z and Kanye aren’t going to be in this video? I just don’t see them fitting in.
1:09 – Yeah, there will be no Kanye West, Frank Ocean, or Jay-Z appearance in this video, but that was one dope running kick.
1:27 – Looks like all the running kicks in the world can’t overpower “the man.”
1:57 – Well, we’ve got about three minutes left so maybe Kanye will show up soon to rescue the people...or not.
2:29 – I always wondered what the point of flipping cars during riots is. I guess it’s just a good morale booster.
3:24 – It’s about to get “mad real” during this riot.
3:33 – And that looks pretty amazing. It’s kinda wack that Kanye, Jay-Z, and Frank Ocean aren’t in this video, but despite that these visuals are on point.
4:13 – Anyone have any idea what city or country this was filmed in?
5:00 – An elephant! Now that’s how you close a video!
