Video: Jay Z – Adnis

Jay Z releases the visuals for Adnis. 

Moonlight star Mahershala Ali plays a boxer fighting some personal demons in JAY-Z’s pensive “Adnis” video that was released Friday (July 28). 

The minimal track’s new visual by director Mark Romanek shows Ali in black and white preparing himself for training as a quiet father-like trainer played by Danny Glover watches on. The imagery is compelling and fitting, as the song is a letter to JAY-Z’s dad (that he never wrote, as he says opening the track). 

Throughout it, Ali embodies JAY-Z’s poetic lyrics, facing himself through his struggles with his father.
