Well well well. Mr. Kanye West, the self proclaimed king among hip hop artists and producers alike released a new video not too long ago and guess what. He didn't even try this time around. Not that it's not allowed to use the work of others if you have the proper permissions and licensing agreements, but come on.


I sometimes imagine how it works when a song like that is being made. "Hey Kanye... Why don't we give them something familiar.. Something that already works and sells good?" "Hey! This might just work! I'll jump around a bit, you'll fix me up with a nice video with stolen visual design and we're set! Another million dollars earned Kanye style! Woohoo!". I'm pretty positive it's something like that.


So what we have here is music by Daft Punk from their Discovery album, neatly remixed, plus the visuals stolen directly from Akira by Katsuhiro Otomo. This, plus lyrics like "Let's get lost tonight. You could be my black Kate Moss tonight", make this video into something exceptionally personal for Kanye West, I'm sure. He must have reached into the depths of his inner self to come up with this musical, visual and lyrical arrangement.


"I ask, cause I'm not sure. Do anybody make real shit anymore?" I guess not, Kanye. I know that hip hop artists are often accused of stealing samples, but this is just beyond theft. This is heresy.

Well mate, thanks for that post, it's been a while since I had so good laugh :3 Especially last two parts of it, just F.. KOed me x_X. Sad, but he is not the first guy who has "borrowed" a bit of this and that, worse cases are known, and you don't even have to look for them too far from your current finding. Does Timbaland ring the bell ? What is funny about it is that he has admitted to using music found on the net without permission of their proper owners. Asked about it he just said something like "It makes me laugh. The part I don't understand, the dude is trying to act like I went to his house and took it from his computer. (..)" big lol for that guy, of course that's pretty fucking far from theft in or favourite r&b artist retarded apprehension.

PS I guess I'm the first person leaving a comment here? no? :}
