Video: Kanye West – Street Lights (Fanmade)

This is like the 5th fan-made video we’ve posted (of this song alone) but apparently this one in particular got the thumbs up from Mr. West himself (via his cousin Tony Williams) and 88-Keys likes it too.

via KanyeLive.

Update: This is actually the video for Tokyo/Glow by The Generic Man.

    Great job YeezyDude! Kanye West is top 5 and he hasn’t released a hip-hop album in 3 years! Kanye is one of the best artists out there. He has progressed and grown as a artist and person. Kanye will shut everyone up in 2010. He is working with Pete Rock, DJ Premier, RZA, and Q-Tip on his upcoming lp.

  17. RNC Chairman Michael Steele Says:

    I hope [and suspect, as he always does this] that he works WITH those producers on beats, instead of just taking a beat from them.

    He’s got something up his sleeve involving whatever new kind of music he’s really into at the moment. It’s just a matter of what that is… world music, dubstep, film score, who knows.

    one of the most stupid comments i’ve ever read. An album can be hiphop but there are no hiphop albums. 808 was RnB/Pop anyway.

    pathetic. Yeezy is easily top 10. His lyrics have substance…he can actually rap. Sorry, but i’d rather listen to the relatable shit that he raps about rather then fake drug raps and other stupid pop shit.

    Kanye’s dropped 3 classic hip hop albums… and 808s was dope in it’s own genre. Hate on Graduation if you want, but that album really set the tone on how to incorporate real messages through a mainstream sound..

    Hate stubborn niggas

    It was a different take on R&B/Pop that came from hip hop’s aesthetic, the same way T-Pains stuff is [but better].

    I haven’t a clue what you mean by “An album can be hiphop but there are no hiphop albums”, but if you want to argue semantics find someone else.

    PS: Hip Hop is a general term that stands for the culture that consists of rap, djing, breakdancing and graffiti. so to speak of a hip hop album and not of a rap album makes no sense. an album can be hiphop when it really represents the spirit of the whole culture though. you dont call sth a “sports game” either you say football/basketball game or w/e. same concept.

    Nice reference to Cam… but even nicer was the reference to wikipedia in the next paragraph. <-sarcasm btw

    Again, I’m not going to argue over semantics, especially for a word that has had it’s meaning changed over time anyway. It is my opinion that the aesthetic from which Ye chose to do his pop/electro/R&B album was one defined by the traits of hip hop music.

    i was gonna say that too…

    but on Pyrex, its the same flow just a lot slower beat, so its an illusion …

    true. Busta is probably in my top 25, definitely top 50. I think the sterioids (ALLEGEDLY) made him extra aggy, but i really liked super creative Bussa Bus. Obviously, I thought ELE was great enough to name check it in a rhyme.

  95. landlord Says:

    although his delivery on Pyrex Vision is hella different, cause he’s almost whispering in a laid back manner…

    so i guess that does qualify as switching it up

  109. Fresh Huxtable Says:

    Like, out of all the prime examples of somebody getting killed on wax, we never say, “oh, he got “The Bridge Is Overed” or “The B**** In You’d” or “Wanksta’d”. We say he got Ethered.

    And for all the times somebody came in and stole the show, people point to Renegade as the most prime example of it. I think some of that is nobody really expected Jay to get got like that,
    and in fact, Jay wasn’t wack on that song at all, quite nice in fact. I think Em going to that level on him just made it that much more powerful…it’s not like he was 3000 on the Walk It Out remix…he’s on a track with one of the goats.

    so really Nas started both those things, as well as being the first person to refer to Jay as a camel…

  115. Charles Oakley Says:

    Like, out of all the prime examples of somebody getting killed on wax, we never say, “oh, he got “The Bridge Is Overed” or “The B**** In You’d” or “Wanksta’d”. We say he got Ethered.

    And for all the times somebody came in and stole the show, people point to Renegade as the most prime example of it. I think some of that is nobody really expected Jay to get got like that,
    and in fact, Jay wasn’t wack on that song at all, quite nice in fact.
    ^^
    They are directly related because “eminem murdered you on your own shit” was a line off of ether. i dont think anyone really expected nas to come at him like that, so the surprise added to the potency (and the digs were real personal)

    Nas sounded like a Nah commenter going in on Ether.

    To be fair though, a lot of people in my circle were saying that Em killed Jay on Renegade long before Ether came out. So when Nas said it, it was almost like confirmation of what a lot of people already thought.

    And the Pippen analogy holds–it’s not like Jay lost by having Em on Renegade. Blueprint is still a classic, it’s still a great song. It’s just that for someone saying that they’re the best and better than Big, to have Em come in who has never said he’s the best and kill you on your own stuff…he was like a silent assassin…kill you and then disappear into the shadows, not saying anything about it…

    I am the truest, name a rapper that I ain’t influenced–Nas has influenced a lot of rappers
    Gave y’all chapters but now I keep my eyes on the Judas
    With Hawaiian Sophie fame, kept my name in his music–true, we’ve seen the video, and he sampled Nas for his first album

    When KRS already made an album called Blueprint
    First, Biggie’s ya man, then you got the nerve to say that you better than Big–both of these are verifiable. Jay did say he was better than Big on 106 and Park, as well as on other occasions. “If not me, then who?”

    You seem to be only concerned with dissing women
    Were you abused as a child, scared to smile, they called you ugly?–out of Jay’s own mouth on “Song Cry.” I mean, I give Jay props for making an honest sincere song, and unfortunately Ether might prevent him and others from making that again.

    Wearing Jaz chains, no tecs, no cash, no cars
    No jail bars Jigga, no pies, no case
    Just Hawaiian shirts, hanging with little Chase–the Hawaiian Sophie video, plus other corroborating sources

    What you think, you getting girls now ’cause of your looks?
    Ne-gro please
    You no mustache having, with whiskers like a rat
    Compared to Beans you wack–subjective about the Beans part, but at that point in time, Beans was on fire. It was a smart tactical move, too, because Beans ego was prolly like, “oh, Nas thinks I’m nice? Better than Jay even? Aight.”

    And, Eminem murdered you on your own shit
    You a dick-riding faggot, you love the attention
    Queens niggas run you niggas, ask Russell Simmons–the fact is, Renegaded is now a word in the hip hop lexicon, and Russell did run Def Jam, which did own the Roc

    Shawn Carter to Jay-Z, damn you on Jaz dick–I mean, hey, how else would you come up with the name Jay-Z?

    How much of Biggie’s rhymes is gonna come out your fat lips?–you already know

    Wanted to be on every last one of my classics
    You pop shit, apologize, nigga, just ask Kiss -it’s been said that Jay wanted to be on Nas’ album and vice versa. I don’t know if that one is publicly verifiable, but I’ve heard enough circumstantial to throw this one in
