When a unfinished version of his “Black Skinhead” video begun to spread through the internet Kanye responded with swift FU to the parties involved with its premature release and urged those that had seen to wait for its full release to judge its content. Well the official version has finally launched, and all of the angst and menace felt from its leak remain as the now interactive piece allows users to dictate their experience through simple controls. While the interaction may not be as progressive and ground breaking as the caption at the beginning of the piece would lead, Nick Knight’s lending hand combined with Kanye West’s seeming disgruntled demeanor produce a compelling rich video worth a few proper glances. The “interactive” piece can now be seen at kanyewest.com.
