Emulating Kanye-100% complete.
Do you want to restart your Computer now?
Yeah because nobody EVER came out with a conceptual video with models before right? (SARCASIM!)
And it’s Sarcasm snitch.
Ya’ll hilarious, Nice video nothing special…
is that lenny kravitz daughther?
agree with number 2…kanye isnt the first to do that….he might have even gotten the advice form hov so lets not talk about what we dont know
is dat the offical video seriously?
wuzzup with rappers making videos without being in them. but hova still tha best.
I like the video and iloooove the song. Why evryone act like Kanye is the most original rapper ever? Now when someone does something diffrent their automaticly branded as copying Kanye. Please, don’t you people know nothing is original anymore?
video is hard. cosign #10
I don’t see anyone knockin this shit in the club or the car. That Anerican Gangster album was mad overrated, no way Def Jam would have paid for a video to this shit if anyone but Jay put it out.
Kanye West is currently the most emulated and copied artist in the music industry,guess how many artists started rocking Jeans with a 20 inch waist AFTER The College Dropout?
I haven’t seen Jay-Z rock a do-rag since The College Dropout,need I say more?
whos a better rapper kanye or jay-z???we ALL no jay has that so shut the fuck up
i like it
“whos a better rapper kanye or jay-z???we ALL no jay has that so shut the fuck up”
How many Grammy’s did Jay win this year?
Don’t worry,i’ll wait.
i love this it makes me wanna love a chick i dont know and seduce her.
worse song on his album, wrost video ive seen inna awhile…..
oh so all the real rappers when grammys now?all a grammy means is a white person can listen to your music,but i also have a question for you…how many times has kanye west won lyricist of the year??
dont worry,i’ll wait.
Is this another trend to not be physically in your own video please explain that to me.
Don’t front, ya’ll know that shit was wack. And this coming from a huge Jay fan. Yea im tired of the same ol generic rap videos.. but just cuz this is different and conceptual doesn’t mean it’s good. Plus I Know has been out for too long already. He need to drop Party Life as a single.
rappers that have never won grammys…dr.dre,snoop,ice cube,the game,50 cent,nas…and this just to name a few artist who have made better albums then kanye west.
@ A NIGGA EATING A SALAD?!?
check and mate.
“oh so all the real rappers when grammys now?all a grammy means is a white person can listen to your music,but i also have a question for you…how many times has kanye west won lyricist of the year??
dont worry,i’ll wait.”
I couldn’t understand the first part of your post,so i’ll assume you’re going off-topic by not answering my previous question.
Let me know when Jay-Z can make an album as classic as Graduation,it’s been a while since Reasonable Doubt.
Out of all the hot songs Jay has on the albun,he chooses this wack one.
I’m sick of that neptunes sound.
yo nigga eating a salad are you being serious comparing kayne to jay? nigga you must be stupid jay is so far out his league that kayne had to make a song sucking jays dick refer to big brother..
be easy jay > kayne by a million
“rappers that have never won grammys…dr.dre,snoop,ice cube,the game,50 cent,nas…and this just to name a few artist who have made better albums then kanye west.”
You forgot 2pac,Biggie,and a few more.
Rappers that have won Grammys:OutKast,Eminem,Kanye West.
50 Cent has made a better album than Kanye West,word?In Da Club>Jesus Walks?No wonder Soulja Boy has been such a success.
get rich or die tryin>>>any kanye west album period.
i didnt forget anybody,i said just to name a few.
last time i checked jay had two albums in the raps top 10 of all time..which are reasonable doubt and the blueprint.will kanye ever beat those albums lyrically???no he cant,because all he does is raqp about his self.
kanye will never be lyrically better then jay-z and your happy that kanye west won so many grammys,but your forgetting that they nominated kingdom come when he already had american gangster out and was already platinum,so your grammys have no credibility at all.
which album got higher rating??american gangster did and like krs one said flashing lights is not hip hop
Who directed it?
lol… n!ggas love makin excuses for Jigga… If y’all can’t see Kanye’s influence on the n!gga you got a problem, if you jus can’t admit it than you have issues…lmao!
@ #10 There’s still originality! Its jus not abundant in the world of rap!
@ #14 I don’t know! Kanye got soul and be spittin some outlandish sh!t… He might truly be 3 for 3 with the classic status but we gotta wait some time to see. I’m not one to really believe an album is a classic 2 months down the line!
lol @ I guess vs. A n!gga eatin salad! Rounds 1-3 go to that healthy dude…lol!
p.s. the same type people give out all those awards so whether its a grammy or a lyricist of the year it ain’t voted on by the streets and the streets don’t think for themselves no more so it don’t matter!
Kanye >>>>>>>>>> the whole roc staff as an artist! Not the most gully but he goes hard and stays in his own lane!
P.P.S. Both Artist are pop so get off the KRS quote and WTF is this “he cant,because all he does is raqp about his self.” I guess? WTF does Hov rap about? his encore, his past, himself…lol… he suppose to rap about somebody else?
tackling issues about self consiousness and being glad too get some money and jesus aren’t good enough for you?
p.s. the video looks cool and This is one of the songs I can rock wit even though it seems like what 50 did wit that baltimore love song thingy…
cosign that 2cents
aint nuthin wrong wit being a lil influenced by your lil brother. jayz has influenced kanye so much that its not crazy that it could switch around. actually it makes they bond tighter. jayz hoping he make another big brother
and as far as the video goes, lets be real. lyrics-jayz all day. videos are not jayz’s thing, he’s never made hot videos really, when we hear his music is soo good the video could never catch up. i’ve excepted that flaw in jayz’s career. he cant win them all. so no problem if he wanna bite lil brother a lil bit, jayz maybe had 2 or 3 hot videos in his whole career
good one! @ 21.. lolsz
Ouch thats gotta hurt! lol
there goes freeways marketing dollars out the window lol no video for the rock boys damn jayz cold blooded
The girl is supposed to be on drugs right? Someone explain the video to me. It’s not matching the song. At least with Kanye’s video of Flashing Lights, you sorta get the idea. Jay’s video is too dark to understand,.
To number 24… Black Album was a classic, Blueprint was a classic even AG was a classic in my bok, and the video is crack
Zoe Kravitz getting some air play I see…But conceptually, I don’t understand how her 4 different characters in the video correlate to this track…Ye’s Flashing Lights video was pretty self explanatory…But, between the floating lights/smoke and that atomized hand, this video right here is on some next sh*t…
Regardless, this track goes hard…Hov can do no wrong…Just that this video went over my head…
Kind of a boring video and I don’t think this song makes for a good single. He’d have been better off going with “American Dreamin'” to keep with the album’s theme. Both “Roc Boys” and “I Know” sound like uptembo, semi-pop songs (even though this one is a heroin/coke metaphor). But it doesn’t have the grit that the album’s supposed to deliver. Shit, “Pray” would’ve made for a better video.
DAMN THE NIGGA IS SO PAID THAT HE DONT NEED TO BE IN HIS OWN VIDEO AN NIGGAS WOULD STILL WATCH IT!!LMAO!!! **IF I HAD A BILLION DOOOOLLLLLLLLLAAAAAAZZZZZ**
This “creative” shit is getting out of hand…and what ever happened to the TO BE CONTINUED from the Roc Boys video?
A NIGGA EATING SALAD said ” How many Grammy’s did Jay win this year? ”
Oh, so you’re tryin to say kanye west is better than Jay-Z because he won a grammy? If so, c’mon man, stop it with the non sense
” Kanye West is currently the most emulated and copied artist in the music industry,guess how…AFTER The College Dropout?”
Anyway, the video is nice but the track is better
N!ggas need 2 understand the song is about addiction and going thru that type of shit, i think it did a good job of showin the girl go through her Heroin high’s.
Also i think it was a good idea for jay not 2 be part of the video, its cool 2 just sit back and be the narrarator on this one.
Video is WACK!
Jay z passes kanye but jay is old and its kanye turn to shine video was ok song is ok and american gangsta is overrated u camel stans are blinded
i think sum niggas is just stuck in one lane
i appreciate the creativity in this video, or being different, whatever u wanna call it. and no i dont completely understand the video but i wanna watch it again
i seen that new rick ross and tpain video or the new jim jones video and they coulda made it real hot, but instead its the same ol bullshit, niggas posing like models.
even if the video is wack to some of you, rappers are gonna bite it and try to keep up wit the new kanye and jayz videos. u know this shit is monkey see, monkey do. kanye and jayz had the best marketing strategy for the year to promote albums now they tryin to change the video game
all yall addicted lol..schweet..thats how u do it huh jig ;D..
lol@ County of kings good look on the “co-sign”! I can’t touch that 45th post with a 10 ft pole though…lmmfao!
I’m in the building…wazz craccin
the video and song was hard. plain and simple.
long time no see… i think…lol! You be havin aliases and sh!
Aliases? i don’t do those LOL its just that people have to work for a living and take care of priorites instead of makin blogging a priority when you have free time. But yeah long time no see…
