Jay-Z and Kanye West “Illest MF Alive” Video Exclusive

The next music video from Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch The Throne album will not be directed by Hype Williams. Having worked with Jigga and Yeezy on over 15 videos combined, Watch The Throne has been one of the rare instances that hasn’t enlisted his talent. Yet Hype’s influence as the guy who pioneered slow motion shots is directly acknowledged on the chorus of “Illest Motherfucker Alive,” WTT‘s bonus track.

Chances are slimmer than Yeezy’s trousers that the official video for “IMF” is in the works. It’s fair to say it’s just not the anthem that matches up to previous singles like “Otis” and “Paris.” As Hype has become more selective of his projects, these days he rarely steps behind the camera for your favorite rapper. Still, the streets want Hype, which is why this fan-made clip of his greatest Jay and Ye productions was made.
