Kanye Confirms Yeezus Film Coming To Theaters

By Tom Breihan / February 27, 2014

Kanye West’s Yeezus, Stereogum’s favorite album of last year, is about to become a movie. Hype Williams, inarguably the greatest rap-video director of all time, has directed a movie about Kanye’s Yeezus tour. Williams’s only previous feature film was Belly, the narratively jangled but visually ravishing 1998 Nas/DMX vehicle, and it was always a national tragedy that nobody gave him money to make another one, so bless Kanye for this. A trailer for the movie aired before Kanye came to the stage on Late Night With Seth Meyers earlier this week, and Kanye has now confirmed that it’s real and that the movie is “coming to theaters.” I’m hoping for an IMAX 3D release. You can watch the stunning trailer on Kanye’s website.
