kanye west louis vuitton concert

Late pass, but this is pretty amazing. As you all know, Kanye West performed at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris — which is where that hilarious dancing meme was born — for four consecutive nights earlier this month, and it turns out the museum quietly uploaded this official recap video a few days ago. The clip doesn’t actually contain any audio from the concert (it’s been dubbed with sounds of a speeding car and thunder — metaphors by DONDA?), but we do get to experience Kanye’s live set in all its scenic, multi-screen glory.

documentary

In a short web documentary featuring a number of New York City’s new class — including Action Bronson, Flatbush Zombies, The Underachievers, and Le1f — director Robert Lopuski (Watch the Throne doc.) created a unique piece showcasing the rappers’ individual personalities. Forewarning: this is not your standard rapper interview clip by any means.

“There’s this almost transcendent quality of being nobody in pursuit of something great—the idea of becoming a Lord,” Lopuski said. “It felt fragile but charged, raw, dream like, ritualistic.”
