A new Jay-Z video, which features the rapper's own fictionalised murder has been banned from daytime air by MTV bosses.

Following the furore of Britney Spears' confusing death scene at the end of her new promo EVERYTIME, MTV chiefs didn't want to take any chances, so Jay-Z's new video 99 PROBLEMS won't be shown in America until after 6pm.

The rapper is far from upset about the MTV decision: "I feel like Madonna."

The promo was directed by Mark Romanek, who also shot Johnny Cash's award-winning final video, Hurt.
