Hari-Kari, Kanye and a Subcutaneous Troll

Directed by Spike Jonze.

Our first ever Kanye post! On reflection, it's been worth the wait; an epic, 2 year plus build to the above video, which has to be considered among the greatest moments of Kanye's career. If his VMA antics were a curveball, then this is the equivalent of a knuckleball; his "Imma let you finish" moment well within the realm of what we've come to expect from Mr. West (and most likely a shrewd publicity stunt); but this is different. In "We Were Once A Fairytale" we see Kanye's self-effacing, amateur dramatic side and to complete a dubious baseball metaphor, it's kinda unpredictable and weird.

Marvel at Kanye's acting ability, gasp as he vomits rose petals, ponder the meaning of a troll living in 'Ye's innards and enjoy what we feel is the most interesting thing Kanye West has done, for better or worse, in the last couple of years.
