...The bidding has ended and MTV has sole rights to become the first on-air and online outlet to premiere Jay-Z's video for "Run This Town" with Rihanna and Kanye West.

According to MTV, the video will debut on Thursday, August 20th at 8pm EST (international premiere times to be announced locally) across all MTV properties including MTV, MTV2, MTVu, MTV Tr3s, MTV Hits, MTV Jams in the U.S. as well as on MTV’s international network of channels.

Several insiders are revealing that the concept for this video resulted from many nights of the trio playing the video game "Max Payne".

"The song is pretty much about evolution and the progress...You know, you start out as a new artist, you make your way into the game and you climb that mountain and you get to the top and put your flag down. And that's pretty much us putting our flag down. This is Roc Nation, pledge your allegiance, put your flag at the top of the mountain and say we run this town." Quoting: Jay-Z

Funny - When you've reached your target and accomplished your goal...your climb to the top should have a different symbolization. After you've reach the top, why would you place your flag down?

Do you truly believe that Jay-Z is educated?


  1. WHY are they making a big deal of this? ugh

  2. @ 12:07 PM

    They are trying to adapt to the effect that Michael Jackson had with his fanbase.

    Do you recall when everyone use to sit down to watch the premiere of a Michael Jackson or Janet Jackson video? Mainly Michael Jackson's videos...

    Jay-Z and Beyonce want the "Jackson" effect badly.

    I am trying to figure out how much did MTV pay to air this trash.

    I saw an unedit cut and you can tell that the ideas came from the video game "Max Payne".

    In Jay-Z's quote, he's talking about how he entered the game through gang-banging and drug selling. He views the industry just like the levels within the MaX Payne game.

    Now he's fills as if he was MAXED out of the game and he's placing his flag down.

    He's just letting everyone know that a new set of killers are preparing to enter into the Game.

    His sect is making way for the new sect.

  3. Now he feels as if he has MAXED out of the game and he's placing his flag down.

    He maxed out of the drug game
    He maxed out of the music industry


  4. When he said that he retired, he was informing his crew that the initiation has taken place for a new "sect" of "roc boys".
