Meh.

I love the fu*k outta this song, but this aint even a music video. Anyone can make a fu*king 4 minute mini movie with a song in the background that has sh*t to do w whats going on. Maybe if they were IN the fu*king video it wouldn't seem so god damn unrelated.

Why would they be in a video about revolution? When this type of civil unrest from the video comes full circle here in the states, Kanye and Camel will not be by your sides.

The only message here is to promote the idea of revolution and rioting, when the reality is, this is exactly what TPTB want.

I can respect the direction,cinematography,and process of video making though, but overall this video is propaganda that isn't all that groundbreaking. Canye and Hoova didn't even come up with the treatment for the video

u sir have tottally missed the concept, the song is called "No Church in the wild" and in the video, the city is the wild, and there is nowhere that is safe, I.E a church

How so. I think it perfectly depicted how there is no church in the wild. No peace. No safety. No salvation. Only war and survival of the fittest.

This was one of the best videos I've ever seen. It's about the overall message, not just what's said in the song people.

Am I the only person who thought London Riots as soon as this came on?
thats what i thought of also

"Power concedes nothing without a demand": If a quote could sum up the Throne's "No Church in the Wild" music video, Frederick Douglass' famed call for revolution might do it best.

Neither Kanye West nor Jay-Z actually appear in their Romain Gavras-directed clip, which was released online Tuesday (May 29) — and, frankly, an appearance by the megastar duo could've very well hindered the powerful message they were trying to send.

Moments before the beat builds, we see a young masked revolutionary ignite a Molotov c*cktail and walk in slow motion toward a wall of police officers who stand unified, draped in riot gear. The clash begins with a fiery explosion in the middle of a Prague street. Gavras depicts a power struggle familiar to people all across the globe, whether in Los Angeles in 1992 or London in 2011.

Set to the buzzing drums of the 88-Keys and Yeezy-produced track, ill-equipped freedom f!ghters with nothing to lose wage war against an oppressive regime. Of course, there is nothing in the video that directly details a specific storyline or plot: Instead, viewers are expected to rely on their own interpretations of the scenes that look taken straight from CNN.

Fearless protestors hurl stones and f!ght armed officers using only their bare fists. In one scene, a cop who rides atop a horse chases a revolutionary down an alleyway and beats him with a club. Young men are beaten, choked, sprayed with mace and dragged across the concrete as Frank Ocean soulfully croons, "Will he make it out alive?" in time with the staged anarchy.

The gritty violence and social commentary are reminiscent of Gavras' video for M.I.A.'s "Born Free." Though "No Church" isn't as graphic (there's no nudity or massive death scenes), it is moving all the same.

By the end of the five-minute video, the freedom f!ghters seem to have notched a victory of some sort, standing in triumph in the face of their oppressors. But even if a single battle is won, there is no conclusive ending, meaning that the war still rages on.

One of the catchiest lines in the song is a party-weary Kanye spitting, "Sunglasses and Advil/ Last night was mad real." After the track's war-torn visual, the lyric can (and should) take on new meaning.

maybe it was a reference to


The Elephant Rope

As a man was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not.

He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well,” trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”

The man was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?

Failure is part of learning; we should never give up the struggle in life.
