Kanye West posted the official video for the Yeezus single "Black Skinhead" on his official site. [Update: MTV News points out that the site on which the video was posted is actually a Universal Music Group "development" page.] It features a CGI Kanye dancing to song's Gary Glitter-esque shuffle. It's bad. Really bad. It looks kind of like The Sims or maybe an interstitial from Tekken 2. It's definitely not polished enough for Just Dance. "This is that goon shit / Fuck up your whole afternoon shit," snarls Kanye, but this video wouldn't even fuck up your brunch.
Currently, the video is not longer accessible through West's site. Perhaps he heard the Internet laughing at him immediately after he posted it.
Just before his album's release, West announced that the marketing strategy for Yeezus was, in fact, "no strategy." Indeed, there is nothing strategic about this half-assed clip. "Black Skinhead" deserves better.
One highlight, though, is the computer-rendered schlong on West's computer-rendered ripped-up body. It gets bigger and bigger the closer CGI Kanye gets to the camera so that in its last featured shot, it appears to reach his knees.
On Graduation's "Breathe In, Breathe Out," West claimed, "I always had a Ph.D.: a Pretty Huge Dick." He's had a flair for grandeur all along.
