“They say I’m possessed,” Kanye spits on “Black Skinhead,” the track that gets the first official video from his new album, Yeezus.
Rolling Stone describes the three-minute black and white clip and the video does little to dispell the notion.
A PED-ripped stand-in wearing little more than a huge gold chain bounces like a fighter stepping into the ring to the thundering clatter of one of the new album’s most industrial-metal tunes. The man is hard.
Despite the positive online reception, the clip was reportedly pulled from Ye’s website yesterday (Monday July 8) evening.
The rapper pulled the video off his website, which now has returned to a simple photo of jeans with a label announcing West’s collaboration with APC.
The Huffington Post reports the clip, as a CGI version of West bops along to the emphatic song. The basic nature of the clip had some wonder whether it was even finished or if it was posted prematurely. Animated faces in black hoods appear alongside barking dogs, visuals that are familiar to those who witnessed West’s Governor’s Ball show in the lead-up to the release of “Yeezus,” the album on which “Black Skinhead” appears.
