Video: Jay-Z Feat. Kanye West & Rihanna - Run This Town [Behind The Scenes]...

Director Anthony Mandler describes the video as rebellious:

" 'I wanted something that didn’t fit into ‘this is New York, this is a building or a street [you know],’ ” he explained to MTV News. “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.’ "

Run this town officially gives us a sense of what post American Gangster Jay is trying to do with his aesthetic.
