“Her mother, brother, grandmother hate me – in that order…”
Big weekend in music – Radiohead dropped their new record (more on them tomorrow), I saw Tunng live (more on them later today) and Kanye finally dropped the first proper video for a My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy track that wasn’t a thirty-five minute short film or a two-minute teaser. Even now, I can’t help but feel like this is also a teaser for something much bigger. For now, though, it’s another treat for the senses.
Once again, we’ve got Hype Williams on board – the dude is the King Midas of hip-hop videos, and I’ll be doing a feature on him in a few weeks to prove it. Anyway, this video has plenty to keep you watching – the adventures of an adorable little girl through a black and white city, Yeezy spitting on top of a police car, Rihanna showing what is described in the YouTube comments as some serious sideboob action – yep, this one’s got it all. It’s all a bit confusing at first, but on the other hand it’s also kind of epic. See what you think, and be sure to leave a comment on what you thought of it!
