Throughout his life rapper Jay-Z has been very critical of his father, Adnis “AJ” Reeves, for abandoning their family. Now, as a father himself, he’s taking a second look at the facts and giving his father credit for the good things he did. See the powerful black and white video that accompanies "Adnis," featuring Mahershala Ali as a boxer and Danny Glover as his trainer.  
Jay-Z explained how his reappraisal came about. "All my songs up until this point have been about anger with my dad," he said. "As an adult looking back, now I have a different perspective of it. I started thinking, 'Man, my dad married my mother at a time when everybody was leaving.' He tried."
