Jay-Z feat. Rihanna & Kanye West 'Run This Town' Free Music Video

Ever since he exploded onto the hip-hop scene in the early 1990's, Jay-Z has been a force to be reckoned with. Not only has he sold millions of records across the globe but he has also helped shape the music industry and inspire and mentor young artists such as Rihanna and Kanye West. Throughout his career he has been at the fore of hip-hop and has expanded his entrepreneurial skills by setting up various record labels (such as Roc-A-Fella Records), clothing lines (Rocawear) as well as bars and sports clubs.

Jay-Z came from humble beginnings in Brooklyn, New York and has remained true to his roots, even creating his stage name after the J and Z subway lines that passed his block. In the early and mid 1990s Jay-Z collaborated on many singles and engaged in a lot of underground rap battles which earned respect from contemporaries such as LL Cool J, Ja Rule and DMX. As he was gradually gaining a reputation for himself as one to watch, Jay-Z gained respect and backing from major players in the world of hip-hop and in 1996 he released his debut album to global critical acclaim. Ever since this debut, Jay-Z has earned a name for himself as a forward-thinking artist and entrepreneur and has a legion of fans, many of which have propelled his videos to the top of the charts. His latest album, 'The Blueprint 3', was released earlier this autumn and is his 11th album to hit the number 1 spot, knocking Elvis off the top spot for holding the record for the most number 1 albums.

'The Blueprint 3' is typical Jay-Z in that it addresses both global issues and his personal thoughts in a way that can appeal to hardcore hip-hop fans as well as the mainstream. His album so far has sold more than 500,000 copies in the US alone and has yielded 2 world smash singles, one a duet with Alicia Keys and the other, the first track debuted from the album, 'Run This Town': a collaboration with his pop-princess protégé Rihanna and his collaborator and friend Kanye West. The track is unusual in that it showcases all three talents and highlights each of their skills. Rihanna sings a killer hook which will get stuck in your ears for days and Kanye West brings a different style of rap to the table; he also produced the song. Jay-Z sounds iconic on the track and his ability to produce both a mainstream and an underground sound shows him to be the star he is.

The video is also fantastic with all three appearing in aggressive and stylish clothing. Because the song is almost anthemic, free music video websites have been over-run with requests to see the hit. With such epic songs yet to be released from Jay-Z's 'The Blueprint 3', the videos made for the follow-up singles will undoubtedly get the same response from fans.
