My guess is this is the original version with that preview picture from way the fuck back. Nothing to say, really. Show respects to The New Music Cartel (what up Lowkey?) for this one. Thoughts?

Even though I haven’t really been able to make a connection between the vid’s concepts and the actual song, the artistic visions and camera techniques used are in a whole different league than anyone else’s videos right now. Especially the last two videos. The first video wasn’t as advanced in terms of concepts and camera techniques, but it had Rita G, so I can’t complain. Kanye is on a complete different level, and its good to see actual artistic concepts rather than just regular generic music videos.

Since I’m not the only one that dosen’t understand it, I now don’t mind admitting that this one made very little sense to me. I guess I’m not as bright as I thought.
I could atleast follow the other two. But this one I might have to watch a couple more times.
…And probably have someone explain to me.
…probably more than once. lol.

It took somebody else telling me what the hell the ‘original’ version was about for me to like it… Does anyone know why he’s doing several versions of the video, not that I’m complaining, just wondering.

the story goes like this: he did this video first, scrapped it then did video 2, scraped it… then the rita-g version was done and they ran with it. these are just coming out on some “unreleased” shit.
