If you’re a fan of the TV series Friends or at least familiar with it, then you should definietely check out Jay-Z’s latest video for “Moonlight,” which is basically an all-black-casted spoof of Friends starring Issa Rae, Jerrod Carmichael and several others, including a cameo from Hannibal Buress.

Jay-Z’s latest album 4:44 not only describes his growth as a person, but also topics that affect the livelihood of African Americans and how they’re being viewed currently, and the Moonlight video was no exception, criticizing the media in general for overshadowing black projects over white projects that were even a bit likely appropriated from those or other black projects.

Fun Fact: Some say that the video release was a response to NBC cancelling “The Carmichael Show” earlier this week.
