Pass The Popcorn: Kanye West Debuts Short Film + Scorcese Casts “Black Skinhead”

Kanye West debuted a short film inspired by American Psycho during a listening party for his forthcoming LP Yeezus, on Friday. The film follows in the tradition of West’s Runaway and Cruel Summer – both shorts that accompanied his previous releases in 2010 and 2012, respectively. The film attached to the ongoing promotion of Yeezus features Scott Disick and Johnathan Cheban – both extensions of the Kardashian clan – in a reenactment of the Huey Lewis scene from American Psycho that finds the pair debating the merits of Kanye’s music while “New Slaves” plays behind them. This film was projected onto buildings across the world, in keeping with West’s latest promotional strategy. Kanye’s recent forays into film don’t end there. Martin Scorcese has also added Kanye’s “Black Skinhead” to the trailer for his new film The Wolf Of Wall Street, starring Leonardo Di Caprio. No word yet on whether Yeezy’s music will score the entire film, which is slated for release on November 15th. Check the footage below to view the trailer and get a look at the projection of Kanye’s latest short film.
