With the holidays here, JAY-Z is dropping off a triple dose of gifts for his fans. Specifically, the NYC legend has delivered three new visuals in support of tracks off his most recent studio album 4:44.

In the midst of a headline-generating tour, Hov presents new vignettes for “Legacy,” “Marcy Me” and “Smile Me.” Like past videos for album cuts such as “Adnis” and “Kill Jay Z,” JAY-Z takes a cinematic, star-studded approach to the visual companions to his records. Most notably, “Legacy” features Ron Perlman and Susan Sarandon, while Jeymes Samuel serves as its writer and director; “Marcy Me” comes to us courtesy of Joshua and Ben Safdie, while “Smile” was written and directed by Miles Jay. With each clip, JAY-Z has a new, powerful story to tell and a message to convey.

Courtesy of TIDAL, you can check out JAY-Z’s latest trio of 4:44 music videos below. Earlier this month, JAY-Z also penned a special op-ed for The New York Times.
