blame it on Meka July 3, 2017

After essentially gifting fans with 4:44 by giving it away for free, JAY-Z has shared a second — albeit quasi- — video for the album.

The short film, titled “Footnotes For ’The Story Of O.J.’,” features CNN commentator and political activist Van Jones (who has signed a management deal with Roc Nation) providing insight on his experiences with racism in the public school systems. Jay, actor Michael B. Jordan (who is starring in Marvel’s upcoming Black Panther), Will Smith, Kendrick Lamar, Mahershala Ali and others also provide input as well. A preview of the video for “4:44” can also be seen towards the end of the clip.

While 4:44 may be free (sidebar: someone should tell Snoop Dogg that), “Footnotes For ’The Story Of O.J.’” is only available in full to TIDAL subscribers. However, previews of it can be seen above and below.

In other news, Future adds his name to the list of artists taking offense to Jay’s “money phone” line.
