Jay-Z released the second video “Run This Town” featuring Rihanna and Kanye West, off of his Blueprint 3 album. The trio of Rap and Pop royalty did a great job in living up to the hype, utilizing Rihanna’s seductress voice and verses from arguably the two best rappers out.
The video, which plays as a 300 meets Gladiator, depicts the three pop icons summoning their followers, thus inspiring a revolutionary movement.
The Blueprint 3 is Jay-Z’s third album, after coming out of retirement in 2006, and caps off the trilogy in his Blueprint album series. With a release date of 9/11/09, The Blueprint 3 is the most anticipated album of the year and will likely be the best selling.
Amid illegal downloads and P2P pirating, Jay-Z continues to keep his dynasty alive through billboard chart toppers and platinum selling albums.
