Now, I’d consider Kanye West my guilty pleasure. I really respect his attention to detail in every project he pursues. He’s a perfectionist, extremely passionate, and isnt afraid to spend the money. In my opinion, him as a rapper is my least favorite personality.
Now, Here’s the video for No Church In The Wild, with Jay-Z and Frank Ocean. The power of the video is reminiscent of Jesus Walks, the power of the song in reminiscent of his track, Amazing. I think they way this music video is pooled is incredible, such raw power, and passion for what you believe in. And lyrics to boot.
