Jay-Z’s video for “The Story Of OJ” is now available on Youtube for everyone to watch.
Originally released exclusively to Tidal, “The Story Of OJ” is an intricate animated video inspired by racism. The Jay-Z and Mark Romanek directed visual is extremely creative and tells a unique story.
We find a cartoon-version Jay as many different characters in what seems like a pre-1960s era, when racism was much more in your face than it is today. With segregated seating on buses, and depictions of slaves the video is undoubtedly a commentary on the way the world is still working today.
