Yesterday, Kanye West released the long-awaited music video for his latest offering Black Skinhead (or Blkkk Skkkn Head) on his official website.
With a visual that debuted at midnight, fans were treated to a muscular CGI version of the controversial rapper, surrounded by blacked out dogs and black KKK-esque hoods.
The video also allowed viewers to get involved (sort of, kind of) with the interactive feature of slowing the video down or playing it at its regular speed.
Why would anybody want to slow it down? I don’t know, that’s just what happened.
The dark video encouraged reactions from many followers of the rapper, and here’s what some of them thought of his most recent effort:
The Black Skinhead video is pretty damn fantastic. I haven't had the full experience but the video on it's own is phenomenal

I love the track black skinhead but the interactive video on Kanye's site for it is just plain weird.

Some good pointless technology going down on the Kanye West "Black Skinhead" video, might watch it all really slo-mo one day tho #screenshot

Playing Black Skinhead just a little bit slower than normal in the video is actually reeeeaaallly good. Video is an odd idea though.

Some were left baffled but in awe at his genius, whilst others were just plained old baffled.
It’ll only be a matter of time before everyone gets used to it and starts calling it a creative, artistic piece of work.
Have you seen the video yourself? What do you think of it?
