The video is 9 minutes long and was shot in one continuous take. It premiered at Paris Fashion Week and is scheduled to screen at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art this weekend, where it will be showing for four days.
According to the New York Times, the video features Kanye as he "runs, crouches, dodges, raps, rants, sweats and pants, as if being pursued by the camera or the police or in pursuit himself, until he slumps against the wall to catch his breath." McQueen has used long takes in several of his films. The short film will feature two singles from the album, "All Day" and "I Feel Like That."
