Video: Kanye West feat. Mr. Hudson – Paranoid (starring Rihanna) [Final Version]

That wasn’t even an old version, that wasn’t even the video. It was just a bunch of footage, like a timeline type of thing to show the idea. That was pre-rough cut.
Nabil Elderkin, ‘Paranoid’ Director

IT HURTS ME TO SEE THE OLD AND VERY WRONG VERSION OF THE PARANOID VIDEO GET LEAKED ALL OVER THE NET WHILE I WAS ON AN 11 HR FLIGHT AND COULDN’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. IT’S JUST FRUSTRATING WHEN THIS STUFF HAPPENS BECAUSE I REALLY CARE ABOUT THE PRODUCT AND SINCE VIDEOS NEVER GET PLAYED ANY WAY YOU MIGHT AS WELL TWEAK THEM AND MAKE THEM AS SPECIAL AS POSSIBLE. THE VERSION THAT GOT LEAKED FROM THE CAMERA PHONE LAST WEEK IS AT LEAST A LITTLE CLOSER TO THE FINAL PRODUCT. THANK YOU EVERYBODY FOR YOUR SUPPORT BUT THAT VIDEO WAS NOT UP TO MY STANDARDS.
Kanye’s blog

Like this video version with new synths, etc in this version. Need this in CDQ, Ye.

    Do you know of any dancehall blogs? I swear I’m so out of touch. When I came back home from up top in ‘03, you couldn’t get a single song past me. Now… I be on WSHH clickin’ on “new” vids thinkin’ them shits just dropped.

    ^^^^

    Nah…I aint never been to a dancehall blog, but I know they exist…

    I more get cds, dvds, etc

    You aint got no dancehall radio stations out there…? Like REAL ones, not the ones that just play Sean Paul & Shaggy lol

    ^LOL. Man, HELLZ nah. The closest we got is when DJ Trini plays the reggae mix on 95.5 on Friday (or it might be Saturday) nights. And that’s a DC station. Definitely none in B’more.

    I have been trying to see if the stunt was planned or not. How do you know for sure?
    Em’s reaction told me he knew he was going to land in front of him, but not with his balls in front of his lips! “are you serious! are you f-in serious! get this mofo off of me!” (c) Em

    if what you are doing in your movement is considered ‘normal’ you are not doing the right thing. In order to make an impact you must do things that others don’t/won’t understand. They will consider it crazy and unbelievable, that’s when you know you’re on the right track.

    ^^^

    Because the person that planned the whole thing was in the paper talking about yesterday…And staff was confirming it was planned & rehearsed

    think about it: You really think MTV would EVER do some shit like that without the artists’ consent??? And no ones suing??

    no way

  13. Joe 88 Says:

    LV is one half of Sean and LV, who are part of Puff’s new Hitman collective on Bad Boy (Press Play, American Gangster, etc). Catch up.

  24. Barbecue Tee Says:

    @ rigz

    I just don’t think Em knew the extent of the ether he was agreeing to. Although, he didn’t seem quite mad enough.

    I see in the paper that Em and Cohen haven’t commented and the post by Scott Aukerman has been removed.

    *thinks Em probably thinks any publicity is good publicity* smh @ Em

  25. V.I Says:

    ^^^

    2PAC ONCE DANCED WITH A DISABLED LADY IN A WHEEL CHAIR FOR 2 HOURS.

    BRUCE LEE TAUGHT BLACKS KUNG FU AND FACED SEVERE BACK LASH FROM THE CHINESE MARTIAL ARTS AOMMUNITY AS IT WAS FORBIDDEN TO TEACH NON CHINESE. SO HE STOOD UP AGAINST RACISM

    ^^^

    TO ME, THOSE ARE ACTS OF INTERGRITY AND CHARACTER.
