Kanye West’s ‘Black Skinhead’ Video Is Ready for Viewing
Created by director Nick Knight, the video opens with an image of three heads wearing KKK hats — but instead of the typical all white, they’re draped in black. Their cone caps frame the rest of the clip, which centers on a digitally-rendered shirtless West dancing and rapping on a shadowy stage.
The video, streaming on West’s website, is meant to be interactive: it allows viewers to adjust the speed and sound, as well as capture a snapshot to share across social media platforms, all while with a cursor shaped like a hand giving the finger.
As West continues to roll out promotions for his acclaimed album, Yeezus, he has come under fire: he is under investigation after allegedly attacked a videographer at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday.
