Jay-Z's 'Run This Town' Music Video Feat. Rihanna and Kanye West


Jay-Z, Rihanna and Kanye West go rebellious in the Anthony Mandler-directed music video for 'Run This Town' off Jay-Z's new album 'The Blueprint 3'.

Jay-Z's music video for "Run This Town", one of the singles in his September 11 release "The Blueprint 3", has finally arrived in full. The Anthony Mandler-directed video has two featured guests in the song, Rihanna and Kanye West, making cameo appearances.

The video was filmed at Fort Totten Park in New York on August 6. On what Anthony tries to capture for the video, he previously told MTV, "I wanted it to feel more ancient. I wanted it to feel more European but on American soil. I didn't want it to have a framework, like, 'Oh, we're riding in New York'."

"There's a militia, a march and a kind of rambunctious energy to it that, for me, I immediately wanted to tap into," the director continued. "I showed [Jay] some references from the classic rebellious zones of the world. We live in a very orderly society in America, but when you get into Brazil, you get into the Middle East, you get into Africa, you get into Eastern Europe, when you get into places like that, there's a different sort of 'we run this town' [going on]. There's less order and more chaos. So we looked at a lot of those references, new photos and historical photos, to capture that kind of falling-apart feeling."
