Jay-Z and Kanye release video for 'No Church in the Wild'

Jay-Z and Kanye West are heard but not seen in their new music video for their "Watch the Throne" track, "No Church in the Wild."

The Romain Gavras-directed video for the album standout is set in the streets of Prague and filled with scenes of Molotov cocktails and tense standoffs between police and protesters.

But for every masked fellow we see in the clip, none of them are Jay, Kanye or collaborator Frank Ocean, which left Entertainment Weekly wishing a famous face would appear to "spice things up a bit."

But MTV thought seeing one of the superstar rappers would've disrupted the video's intense imagery, noting that without an obvious storyline, "viewers are expected to rely on their own interpretations" of what Gavras presents.

One place fans will see Jay and 'Ye is on tour in Europe for "Watch for Throne" - and said fanatics might also soon hear a follow-up to the 2011 record.

Hit songmaker Mike Dean, who's affiliated with West’s G.O.O.D music label, reportedly told Quiet Lunch Magazine that while another collaborative album between the two hasn't started yet, it's on the way.

That is, when they get a chance: Aside from this summer's "Watch the Throne" tour, Kanye just premiered his new film short, “Cruel Summer” at the Cannes Film Festival, and Jay is rumored to have signed on as a musical director for the latest film adaptation of “Annie,” the one that Willow Smith will reportedly star in.

    FACT: 2012 EDUCATION, EDUCATION, EDUCATION , IS SO IMPORTANT –
    THE CHURCH DOCTRINES HAVE PAGAN BEGINNING.
    WE KNOW THIS, WE WHO ARE EDUCATED...OK ALRIGHT ALREADY....NO MORE LIES
    TO EACH OTHER AND PRETEND . ...I THINK MANY OF THESE YOUNG SINGERS, ACTORS
    UPON LEARNING THE LIES TOLD THEM BY CHURCHES LEADERS, PEERS, AND PARENTS.
    THEY ARE FED UP AND EXPOSES RELIGIOUS LIES THROUGH THEIR MUSIC AND ACTING....
    IF THE CHURCH TEACHES LIES IS NOT THE DEVIL THE FATHER OF THE LIE COULD IT BE THAT
    MANY WHO GO TO CHURCH AND EXCEPT RELIGIOUS DOCTRINES SUCH AS EASTER (RABBITS THAT LAY EGGS)
    ARE THEY NOT WORSHIPERS OF THE DEVIL? EYES WIDE OPEN THIS IS 2012

    Not a fan of either of these two guys and as far as Willow Smith playng Annie...just because your parents have talent doesn't mean you do! I have seen her perform 3 times and all 3 times it was a train wreck. But Love Will and Jada Smith.
