Video: Jay-Z featuring Swizz Beatz, "On to the Next One"
What Julianne said--sculpture-collecting rappers of the future defile simulacrum versions of peak-bloat art market follies, paint on valuable cars, recollect Heath Ledger's death mask Joker. Over a Justice sample. Symbolic, see, because that's the last decade and this video was released minutes into the new one. Better than the "Forever Young" video and that Bono photoset by a couple miles but these men are experiencing all kinds of what one might term reality problems at the moment. Can't tell if this means Jay's the best thing going or merely experiencing a really outsized case of generic celebrity disconnect. 2009, you were so much more intelligible.
