Mahershala Ali & Danny Glover Star in JAY-Z's New 'Adnis' Video

It's a Friday, and that means a new Jay-Z video at 4:44 pm.

Although Lupita Nyong'o featured in those early promos for "Adnis", the actress doesn't appear in the video itself, though it's likely she'll appear in an upcoming video for the 4:44 bonus track "MaNyfaCedGod". In the black-and-white clip, Ali plays a boxer, training at times by himself and other times with Glover. Adnis Reeves is Hova's late father, who left home when he was just a kid. The release features three new songs not originally heard on Jay's most recent album. Directed by Mark Romanek, the "short film" features Academy Award-winner Mahershala Ali and Danny Glover.
