Kanye West releases un-traditional video for ‘Black Skinhead’
Kanye West reveals the final cut and interactive video for ‘Black Skinhead’.
Following his rants on Twitter – which included a few curse words – about the leak of his video for ‘Black Skinhead’ or “BLKKK SKKKN HEAD”, the pompous twat that is Kanye West has finally released the visual for his Yeezus track.
Stepping out the box of the “usual” – something that he’s been trying so hard to make his own “thang” – the rapper turned visionary has released a socially interactive CGI clip for the track. With the help of his creative house, DONDA, and photographer Nick Knight, the paparazzi hating star has produced something out of the ordinary and quite artistic.
Along with it came this press release:
DONDA PRESENTS NEW INTERACTIVE VIDEO FOR KANYE WEST’S “BLKKK SKKKN HEAD”
OFFICIAL VIDEO DIRECTED BY NICK KNIGHT PREMIERES ON KANYESWEST.COM TODAY
New York, NY – July 22, 2013 – DONDA – the creative house founded by Kanye West – has teamed with renowned photographer and director Nick Knight on the highly anticipated, official video for BLKKK SKKKN HEAD, from West’s acclaimed YEEZUS album.
The video – wich makes its debut today on kanyewest.com – features an online interactive experience that allows users to adjust the motion speed and corresponding sound. In addition users can capture or “photograph” still images of the video’s compelling imagery.
Image captures can be synched, posted and shared across all online and mobile social platforms for a unique secondary experience of the traditional music video.
Nick Knight has teamed with Kanye West on much of the imagery surrounding the YEEZUS project, including the ground-breaking NEW SLAVES video, which has been experiences by millions across the globe via guerilla outdoor projections and online viral captures.
West being the extravagant artist he is has asked online media outlets and bloggers not to “diminish the user experience by just posting it as a normal video” but to forward readers to his site. In doing that what will happen once kanyewest.com returns to its former state?
