Hip-Hop recording artist Kanye West has announced he is taking his critically acclaimed “Yeezus” tour to the big screen. Releasing the actual album in the summer or 2013, it was later followed by a tour that was deemed to be amazing by many.
Kanye West has decided to team up with his good friend and Grammy Award winning music video director, Hype Williams. While the trailer to the film only consisted of production and the actual tour itself, it is uncertain whether anything additional will be added. To many this doesn’t come off as a surprising seeing as to how Kanye West isn’t new to film making. In 2010 he released a short film entitled “Runaway” to go along side his album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Aside from that West recreated a scene from Bret Easton Ellis’s “American Psycho” as a promotional use for his latest album, Yeezus.
As a fan of Kanye West I’m interested in seeing where he takes his new film. Whether it will consist of just tour footage or if there will a be a whole story line and script added to Yeezus. A release date for the film hasn’t been announced but check out the trailer below!
