Jay-Z – The Story of O.J.
Album: 4:44 (2017)
Director: Mark Romanek; Created by the animation team at The Mill
Jay-Z absolutely blew everyone away with this one. Told in a stereotypically racist cartoon fashion, Jay-Z highlights the dichotomies of internalized racism in the African-American population. In the Tidal documentary ‘Footnotes for “The Story of O.J.”‘, Jay-Z said, “We tend to as black people – because we’ve never had anything which is understandable – we get to a place where we think we separate ourself from the culture. Like where O.J. will get to a space where he’s like, ‘I”m not black, I’m O.J.'”
