Where The Lonely Kids Go When The Bell Rings from JW on Vimeo.
In case you didn’t know it, its Yeezy Season. Which means (1) the Chitown ignigma will be dropping a album soon. June 16th to be exact and (2) everyone and their momma will be talking about him and (3) regardless of what people say, he’ll sell A LOT of records.
One die-hard ‘Ye fan from Sweden put together a 45 minute documentary chronicling the producer/rhyme slayers rise to Thronedom pre College Dropout to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. With Kanye’s own voice narrating and his own music as the soundtrack, the film maker has dozens of rare behind the scenes clips and interviews of Yeezy, his inner circle. Included is even the time Jay-Z first heard the track “Big Brother” in the studio.
While the footage may be somewhat granny and raw, bootleg at times even, after watching you can not deny Mr. West’s place as icon in American Culture and his increasing influence on World Culture.
