Jay-Z’s New “Footnotes” Video Shows Life From a Kid’s Perspective
The new eight-minute visual focuses on kids this time around, where they ask some of their most curious questions and discuss their perspectives on life. The new Footnotes: Kids video, directed by Daniel Newell Kaufman—he recently directed Puff Daddy's Can't Stop Won't Stop: A Bad Boy Story documentary—follows the path of four different kids growing up in New York City.
Questions such as "Is the Earth round or flat?" and "Why is orange a color?" are asked by the young minds in the visuals, who also delve into topics that are covered on the 4:44 album, such as social injustice, art, history and much more. The end also features some dancers showing off their moves inside of a laundromat to the 4:44 title track.
This is one of many Footnotes that Hov has dropped for his 13th studio LP. Previously, he released videos for his "MaNyfaCedGod," "Adnis," "The Story of O.J.," "Kill Jay Z" and "4:44" records so far. We may be able to expect more on the way, but for now, we can enjoy the veteran rapper's latest release.
