JAY-Z opens up about killing off his ego in the latest installment of his 4:44 "Footnotes" video series, this one for his track "Kill Jay Z." "It's really about the ego, it's about killing off the ego so we can have this conversation in a place of vulnerability and honesty," he says. "Jay Z, the public persona, couldn't have this conversation. He has to be eliminated, he has to be moved. So it's really Shawn Carter speaking to Jay Z, and he has to convince him to move aside." The video also notes that the next 4:44 music video will be for the bonus track "Adnis."
