Kanye West embarked on the first show of his YEEZUS tour last night and from first-hand accounts the experience was pretty insane. The above photos are by Jordan Nicholson and really capture the scale of the show (How crazy does that manmade mountain look?). I’ve seen Kanye live 4 times now and I have to say his live show never disappoints. I’m happy to see that he re-invents his stage presence each tour and he really gives fans their month worth. I can’t wait to see what goes down when I see him at Barclay’s next month.
Andrei D. Popa made this incredible video for ‘New Slaves’ off of Yeezus. The video splices together old footage incorporating everything from news segments to commercials and film montages. The effect is an incredibly entertaining experience , with countless video ‘samples’ used. Andrei definetly has tons of talent and vision and even if you’re not a fan of the track, you’ll appreciate the pure visual assault here.
Thanks to Stefan Dotter over at White Lies Magazine for putting me onto this.
