At last, the music video for Kanye West and Jay-Z's "No Church in the Wild" has arrived. A chaotic revolution-fest set to music, this Romain Gavras-directed clip features neither hide nor hair from the dynamic duo. What we see instead is a war between a group of protesters and a squad of riot police.

A deep-swing groove outlines a night-drive sleekness and danger to the album-opener jam, while Frank Ocean’ Mos-Def-meets-John-Legend choral line “What’s a mob to a king?” rings an interesting bell in the wake of the churning Arab Spring and still-fighting Occupy movement – when it's specifically been mobs who overturned their equivalent kings.
