We know Kanye West loves the spotlight, so it’s extremely surprising to see that in his latest video “Coldest Winter” from his “808′s and Heartbreak“s album, he’s not even in it! The film was directed by Nabil Elderkin who also directed both of Kanye’s earlier videos “Paranoid” and “Welcome To Heartbreak“. MTV is quoted saying that the video as very ‘haunting’, but we have to say we were quite impressed. These days videos are all about club scenes, booty shakin’, and that ever so popular artist walking down the tough streets of the city shot. Kanye and Nabil took a really great stab at doing something completely different, by taking more of a gothic old-age look and feel.
Hats off to Kanye and the Director for giving us something new and fresh!
