      Jay-Z “Dirt Off Your Shoulder” The Black Album Roc-A-Fella Records Director: Dave Meyers

      “Dirt Off Your Shoulder” is the second single and music video from Jay-Z’s eighth (and purposed final) album, following “Change Clothes”. It looks like a lot of people may have agreed with me regarding his previous music video, because now Jay-Z has gone back to making thuggish Hip Hop videos like this one here. Instead

      of chilling with a bunch of homosexuals, transvestites, and pole-shaped models at a fashion runway show, Jay-Z along with Damon Dash and his crew are taking over a recording studio and kicking the artist who is in session out.

      As Jay-Z begins rapping into the mic as we intercut between the studio and with various people listening on the radio (i.e. at a barber shop as well as ...

      • through a police car radio as the officers make an arrest). Towards the end of the music video, Jay-Z is then rapping in the back of a limo where there is a traffic jam of sorts. Everyone gets out of the cars, and by everyone, I mean mostly hot and cute women.

        Jay-Z checks the time on his watch and then snaps his finger - Suddenly, all

        of the power in the city shuts down “New York 2003-style” and the remainder of the music video is literally shot in a mixture of night and heat vision. My guess is that last part of the video indicates we are watching it through the eyes of a Predator who recently stumbled upon the MTV or BET channel. Well, it looks like they’re gonna go after his butt now probably… or better yet, Beyonce’s.
