Jay-Z Shares '4:44' Dramatic Trailer Titled 'Kill Jay Z'
Jay-Z has shared another trailer ahead of the release of his new album "4:44". The intriguing clip finds a frightened teenager running in an alley, wearing a T-shirt with "Stay Black" written across the chest. The thirty-second visuals is filmed entirely in slow motion. The striking image is accompanied by dramatic instrumental and sound of sirens, which can be heard faintly in the background.

The new trailer is titled "Kill Jay Z", probably referring to Jigga's recent announcement to add the hyphen back into his stage name. However, it can also be a hint at the title of a track from the highly-anticipated effort, which will be a Tidal and Sprint exclusive. The first trailer also has similar striking and mysterious imagery. It features Mahershala Ali as a boxer and Danny Glover as his coach. Although she makes no appearance in the trailer, Lupita Nyong'o is believed to be one of the featured stars.

The trailer serves to preview Jay-Z's new song called "Adnis". "4:44" will arrive on June 30 and follow up 2013's "Magna Carta... Holy Grail". Jay-Z, who recently welcomed twins with wife Beyonce Knowles, is reportedly ready to hit the road in support of his new album this fall. The tour was initially planned for the summer but it "has been moved to fall" because of the newborn babies.
