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."

    Jay-Z is a Master Mason. Ask yourself this, "what do masons need to build?" A blueprint. What is a blueprint? A design plan or technical drawing that is drawn up by an architect. The architect then gives it to a builder, a mason. Hence the the name of his album "The Blueprint 3". All his Albums entitled "Blueprint" are just markers indicating what degree he has obtained in Freemasonry. Note, that he uses a hieroglyphic 3 (the 3 lines) on his new album. When a Freemason reaches the 3rd degree, he begans to learn hieroglyphics. "The Blueprint" marked the time when he received his 1st Degree as an Apprentice. "The Blueprint 2" marks the point in time he received his 2nd Degree in Freemasonry as a Fellow Craft. And now his new album "The Blueprint 3" is the celebration or marker indicating Jay-Z's arrival at the 3rd Degree of Freemasonry as a Master Mason. The degree at which Freemasons learn about the symbolic occult meanings of hieroglyphs. Like the one he is using on the cover of his new album. These 3 lines in ancient Egypt not only represented the number 3, they also represent the pagan trinity Osiris, Isis, and Horus. Jay-Z has placed this symbol of the pagan trinity on his album for the purpose of flaunting his new esoteric and hidden knowlegde.
