After premiering the track in the first trailer for 4:44, JAY-Z has officially dropped the full-length video for “Adnis.” Hot on the heels of last week’s “Kill JAY-Z” release, the visuals once again see Hov linking up with director Mark Romanek. The result is a stylish black and white piece that features Ocar-winner and future True Detective star Mahershala Ali as a boxer. And the trainer in his corner? None other than Danny Glover.

Check out the video for “Adnis” above via TIDAL and stay tuned for more from Hov — JAY has 4:44-branded PUMAs on the way, not to mention a massive North American tour that kicks off in October.
