The video for “Run This Town,” the much blogged-about Jay-Z single featuring Rihanna and Kanye West, has reached the internet. With it comes proof that the recession is very much over, at least in the realm of hip-hop. Just when you thought the days of elaborate, pricey video shoots had gone the way of the dinosaur, these three come correct with some shit that looks like a cross between The Matrix and Gladiator. I can’t figure out how to embed it, so just go here and watch. And pay close attention at 2:38 or so when Rihanna flashes the double middle finger during the “fuck the other side, they jealous” line. So hot. [via Idolator]
