Kanye West Debuts ‘American Psycho’-Inspired Short Film at ‘Yeezus’ Listening Event
It looks like Kanye West has some more surprises up his sleeve for his new album, ‘Yeezus.’ The mercurial artist premiered a grisly visual to go along with the effort at a listening session in Los Angeles Friday (June 14).
Rap-Up was able to record some footage of the film, although there is no sound because ‘Yeezus’ was being played in the background.
In the two-minute clip, which was shot earlier this month in New York, Disick is attacking Cheban with an ax. After he finishes his horrific act, Disick sits on the couch and lights up a cigar as the bloody corpse lays on the floor.
Anyone familiar with ‘American Psycho’ can see that Disick does resemble Christian Bale’s Jeckyll-and-Hyde character Patrick Bateman.
Yeezy wasn’t at the listening event and with good reason. Kim was having contractions that night and went into labor early Saturday morning (April 15) at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The couple welcomed a baby girl, a month earlier than expected.
As for ‘Yeezus,’ the album has leaked online. Fan reaction to the collection has been mixed. One follower on Twitter wrote, “#Yeezus ain’t gonna be for everybody. Listen for yourself. I like it.”
The album will officially hit shelves on June 18.
