No Church In The Wild
Song by Jay Z & Kanye West Featured artists: The-Dream, Frank Ocean Produced by Om’Mas Keith, MIKE DEAN, 88-Keys & Kanye West Album: Watch The Throne Released: 8 August 2011
“No Church in the Wild” is an existential renunciation of traditional, organized religious worship. Its theme is reminiscent of a famous line delivered by Cassius in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar:
The fault, dear Brutus
Is not in our stars
But in ourselves
That we are underlings.
This song won the award for “Best Rap/Sung Collaboration” at the 55th annual Grammys in 2013.
