Jay-Z “Brooklyn Go Hard” feat. Santogold [video]


Video for the new Jay-Z track “Brooklyn Go Hard” featuring Santogold and produced by Kanye West. Visuals by Evan Roth for (Red)Wire.

From Evan Roth’s blog:

Last week I was contacted to make a video for a new Kanye West produced Jay-Z song for RED & the Global Fund to Fight AIDS in Africa. It launched today (World AIDS Day) at And while I’m happy to be able to help the cause I’m also more than a little bit excited about getting a chance to make something for the likes of Jay-Z and Kanye. I’ve been turning down client requests to use Typographic Illustration for 5 years in hopes that one day the phone would ring and it would be Hova.”

    pretty fuckin dope

  2. jawns b

    holy fuck, dope video and a surprisingly good song…could this be the best kanye beat?

  3. staas

    kanye made a good beat, and jay-z spit a good verse……normally i would be surprised for those things to happen in the same year, let alone the same joint

    someone up the instrumental

  4. IP

    boring vid……dope song.

  5. People obviously didn’t listen to The Blueprint.

    Jay-Z’s rhymes are really in a different direction than what I’ve heard from him before – I like it.

    REALLY not feeling this video.

  6. staas

    i’m sure this is not an official video, it’s cool for what it is, a simple internet promo

  7. Balzac

    yeah its not official. click the ‘source’ link its explains it. some charity thing.

  8. max prime

    awesome song. hopefully it gets a real video.

    high hopes for the new jay z album.

  9. staas

    seriously though, when this instrumental leaks it MUST be posted,illll beat

  10. stinson

    word on the street is that this track is actually for the biggie biopic “notorious”. hopefully its on the next jay album too
