Kanye West Releases 'Black Skinhead' Video
Kanye West has released the interactive clip for “Black Skinhead.”
Created over five months by Nick Knight and Kanye, the video has been created with Internet and smartphone users in mind. It comes with a feature that allows the viewer to adjust the speed and take screengrabs at any stage.
A draft of the video had leaked in recent weeks -- to Kanye’s chagrin. The content in this final version isn’t much different.
The "official" black-and-white clip is built around a digitally rendered Kanye, who’s cutting moves throughout and looking particularly ripped.
The promo opens with a controversial image of three KKK members, with a twist -- they’re draped in black. The spires of their hoods frame the video.
“Black Skinhead” is lifted from Kanye’s chart-smashing new album Yeezus.
