Listen up, America.
To promote his newly released album, Jay-Z, Sprint and TIDAL released a mini documentary Monday at 4:44 p.m. focused on the black experience in America. Titled Footnotes for "The Story of O.J.," it included interviews with Hov and other prominent stars, like Mahershala Ali, Michael B. Jordan, Van Jones, Kendrick Lamar, Trevor Noah, Chris Rock and Will Smith. Each interview was set to "The Story of O.J.," one of 10 new songs included on Jay-Z's album, 4:44.
"Being black in America is like being in a tiny, compressed box anchored at the bottom of the ocean with like 10,000 lbs. of pressure on you at all times, you know?" Jordan said in the video. "And not really feeling like you can be who you are or speak your truth without being criticized with 1,000 opinions and pointed fingers telling you what you're not and what you're not doing."
