While Jay-Z continues to dominate on his current 4:44 tour, he isn’t letting up on promoting the trek’s supporting LP as he recently released three new videos for fan favorites “Marcy Me,” “Smile,” and the timely cut, “Legacy.”

The premiere of the three powerful videos follows Hov’s open letter on America’s controversial criminal justice system penned in response to Meek Mill’s harsh probation violation sentencing. Jigga called the Philadelphia rapper’s sentencing “unjust and heavy-handed” in an extensive Facebook post.

This also isn’t the first time the music mogul has spoken out on this topic. On Father’s Day, this year, he penned another open letter addressing the “exploiting” bailing industry and even walked the walk by bailing out fathers to be with their children.

Following this vein, the visual for “Legacy” tells the story of the nation’s dated prison system.

“Smile” takes things back even further, telling the story of the harsh realities of Brooklyn in the 1980s and “Marcy Me” rounds things up with the relating of young man’s wild night in New York City.

Each video is currently available for streaming on TIDAL.
