Jay-Z | the Holy Grail video

Chopped and screwed. Flipped and bounced. Rearranged and deranged. Jay is not to be out done. The artistry of the video plays out like a ruthless ballet depicting all the spoils of fame and fortune turning into rotted fruit.

Recall The Black Album's The Allure because that was the first episode of this cautionary tale. Kingdom Come's Hollywood would have to be the second installment and Holy Grail is surely the vicious part 3. These songs are Mr. Carter's stories of addiction, masterfully told, from the inside out. And though none of us will ever find the elusive 'Holy Grail', including Jay, we continue to stop at nothing in our poisonous search of it.
