JAY-Z Presents New Sides Of Himself As Lupita Nyong’o Shows Many Faces (Video)

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home. But, there are doubters, so, we need your help. If you have enjoyed anything on AFH over the last 7 years, we are asking you to subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

The “MaNyfacedGod” music video stars Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o. She shows a range of expressions in moods in the black-and-white visual directed by Francesco Carrozzini (who previously did Beyoncé’s “Jealous”).

Like the video, Jay shows his own spectrum of feelings, while making a Scorsese film double entendre: “Healing in real time / ‘Song Cry’ to ‘Resentment,’ that was real crying / ‘Bonnie & Clyde’ things, we hold it down / Had we surrendered then, that’d be the real crime / Got through it, got blessed times two with it / New Bel-Air estates with four pools in it / I told my bro, ‘You gotta go home,’ over vino / Goodfella, don’t gamble with your life, this ain’t Casino / Cost him two mill’ plus the child support / We’ll get the money back, but not the child support / It’s getting too late, we can’t afford mistakes / Woulda broke me down had you got away / It woulda broke me up had you took my child away / I’m glad we found a way / Sexin’ the pain away / Vacay the pain away / Drinking the pain away / Smoking the pain away” Jay raps, alluding to nearly losing his marriage, while coaching others.
