In a recent teaser for the upcoming video “Run This Town,” Jay-Z says the concept is all about the evolution and the process of becoming a successful artist. “(the) song is pretty much about the evolution and the progress. You start out as a new artist and you make your way into the game. You climb that mountain and then you get to the top and put your flag down,” says the “Blueprint 3” rapper. In a clip below, Jay-Z is briefly shown on the set of “Run This Town,” where he is joined by both Rihanna and Kanye West. Like himself, Jay-Z says Rihanna and Kanye West are putting their flag down in allegiance. “That’s pretty much us putting our flag down…like pledging allegiance and putting your flag down.” “Run This Town” premieres on MTV August 20.
