Kanye West - Street Lights
This is my favorite track off of 808's & Heartbreak. The animation in this video is well done and it matches the vibe of the song 100%. I always thought that Kanye West had the best, most creative videos out (e.g. Through the Wire, Stronger, Diamonds (From Sierra Leone), Heard 'Em Say, Touch the Sky, etc). He really puts a lot of thought and innovation into his music videos, which cannot be said for other artists. I'm tired of seeing music videos with rappers in front of rented cars and parading their entourage and busted groupies in front of the camera. Where is the artistry in that?
