Jay-Z 'Marcy Me' by The Safdie Brothers

David Knight - 3rd Jan 2018

Reflecting the track, which recounts Jay-Z's boyhood, a young Brooklyn lad goes on a shopping errand under the scrutiny of a police helicopter, which eventually beams an intrusive spotlight on the rooftop gathering that the boy returns to.

Directed by the Safdie Brothers - who directed the acclaimed movie Good Time, starring Robert Pattinson - and shot by legendary DoP Darius Khondji – Marcy Me is about childhood innocence and how it ends.
