Kanye West Yeezus Tour Film Hype Williams Movie

Kanye West has tapped Hype Williams to direct what seems to be a Yeezus Tour documentary. A trailer on the frequently self-celebrating artist’s website pulls footage from his current stage show, which is indeed a thing worth taking down for posterity’s sake — both for the level of ambition at work and for the WTF-ness of certain moments. Among the wild highlights of that particular tour (which heads to Australia in May): a massive pyramid, lasers for days, a bevy of dancers, West’s array of terrifying/beautiful haute couture masks, the re-resurrection of Jesus Christ, and the ceremonial mid-set Kanye Rant. The film will play in theaters initially.

The GOOD Music boss of course had SPIN’s Album of the Year with Yeezus but the most recent "documentary" about the man was a cornball E! treatment of his made-for-TV proposal to Kim Kardashian. Thankfully, the focus drifted back to music when Bonnaroo announced that West will headline this year, and West delivered a greatest hits medley for Late Night With Seth Meyers earlier this week. Oh, and there was that "Drunk in Love" remix. Our advice: Don’t be a squid brains; go watch the Yeezus trailer now.
