The lead-up of Kanye West‘s sixth album Yeezus was swift and minimal— songs cobbled into form by Rick Rubin, non-existent cover art and promotion via B&W clips projected onto buildings. The only other big publicity came courtesy of an slightly painful “American Psycho” parody with reality star Scott Disick. And after it was revealed that none other than Bret Easton Ellis wrote the piece it seems that the original novel’s author and West may have additional material in the works.
In an MTV interview with Ellis he confirmed that the clip came together just as quickly as everything else surrounding the album, saying that West called him up to write it and “they shot it two or three days later.” Madness as usual, but Ellis also delicately revealed a set of extra plan with West under development. “Kanye and I have been meeting about writing a script for him, and so that’s a project that’s kind of in the works.”
This wouldn’t be the first time that cinema has wound its way into West’s world; the rapper previously teamed up with Spike Jonze to create “We Were Once a Fairytale,” in addition to going glam-ambitious with a 30-minute short film for “Runaway.” Check out both below, in addition to West and Ellis’ original promo, and try to imagine from those what sort of concoction the newfound duo are creating next.
