Kanye West Posts Completed ‘Black Skinhead’ Video
Interactive clips lets viewers adjust speed of images, sound
Now there’s an official version.Â Kanye WestÂ recently posted a link to a completed video for “Black Skinhead,” the lead single from his new albumÂ Yeezus. An unfinished clip (stylized as “BLKKK SKKKN”)Â was posted online earlier this month, resulting in aÂ stream of displeased tweetsÂ from West.
The interactive animated video, directed by Nick Knight and streaming on theÂ rapper’s website, allows users to play with the speed of the images and sound, and to capture still images of an animated avatar of West as he moves and twists in digital shadows.Â
It was a busy weekend for West: in addition to posting the video, the rapperÂ had a confrontationÂ on Friday with a photographer at LAX that has resulted in a police investigation after the paparazzi claimed that West battered him during the incident.
