Kanye West seems to be on a rise as far as public approval rating goes, especially since that famous incident at the ’09 VMAs. Ye took a step back from the limelight for a year, and NOW we are able to witness the product of his invisibility. As you may know, Kanye announced last month that he’ll be dropping G.O.O.D. Friday singles each Friday until Christmas, for free (found at http://kanyewest.com/GOODFridays/). We all know the dude’s got talent, but lately he’s been on fire. And “here’s another hit, Barry Bonds!”
On Saturday (October 23), Kanye dropped his directorial film debut- “Runaway”. An amazing visual extension of his upcoming album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, “Runaway” is one of the most creative musical films I have ever seen. No joke. The music, imagery, symbolism, are all an ode to Ye’s brilliance. “Runaway” in summary is the story of a Phoenix who falls to the Earth, and realizes that being different is unacceptable. But there is so much more to it, and I would hate to ruin it for you so check it out for yourself below.
*Just an fyi, this is almost unanimously an instant classic amongst music fans, critics, artists, etc.
