Jay-Z, Kanye West

Leave it to Jay-Z and Kanye West to give us an exceptionally epic music video loaded with political undertones.

The rap duo released their video for "No Church in the Wild" today—yes, the same song that was featured in The Great Gatsby trailer—which illustrates the animosity and mistrust between civilians and the authorities through a full-blown riot in the streets.

No really, you have to see it for yourself.

The Romain Gavras-directed video opens with a man throwing a Molotov cocktail (aka a fire bottle, neither shaken nor stirred) at police. And as you probably already guessed, this incident leads to officials beating protestors while others start going ham by flipping cars and becoming pyros.

In other (great) news, producer Mike Dean confirmed during an interview with Quiet Lunch Magazine that Hov and Yeezy will bring their creative juices together yet again for a Watch the Throne 2 album.

Dean, who is currently working on a G.O.O.D. Music compilation album, said, "It's not started yet, but it's coming."

Meanwhile, rumor has it that Jay-Z will also be working as the musical director for the latest theatrical version of Annie, starring Willow Smith.

These two just don't seem to care for a break (and for that we're grateful).

What did you think of the "No Church in the Wild" video? And are you excited to hear about another Watch the Throne album? Sound off in the comments!
