Jay-Z Releases the Video for "Adnis", an Unwritten Letter to His Father. [WATCH]

After tons of speculation about the "4:44" project and where exactly movie stars Danny Glover and Mahershala Ali fit in, we finally have our answers! The two Hollywood heavy hitters teamed up to star in the video for "Adnis" a song for Jay=Z's father.

In the song Jay-Z references his father's shortcomings and how he has became the father, to his children, that he never had.

"Uh, letters to my dad, that I never wrote

Speeches I prepared, that I never spoke

Words on a paper, that I never read

Proses never penned, they stayed in my head

Jotted on dotted lines, "I'mma fight you nigga"

Stories that I heard, I'm just like you nigga"

"I punted on the feelings, 'cause you said you was coming

You couldn't kick the habit, I wish you said something

You can't avenge these many sins with your own hands

You wanna make God laugh, just tell him your plans

Who would've thought I'd be the dad I never had

Be the husband I've become

You see, nothing come from that

I forgive you as I live through the beautiful present of the past

I'm just thankful that I get all these gifts to unwrap."

"Adnis" is definitely a story about struggling, fighting against himself, to be better and do better than the example he was shown. Check out the video below.
