Kanye West Confirms <i>Yeezus</i> Will be a Movie

Last year Kanye West’s Yeezus made its way to the top of many best music lists. Now, Kanye has confirmed that he is pairing up with music video director extraordinaire Hype Williams to bring the beloved album to the screen. Williams wrote the script to Kanye’s short film Runaway and directed music videos for the rapper. There is no release date as of yet, but it appears the film takes place throughout the Yeezus tour, though it’s not clear whether this will be primarily a concert film. You can watch the visually appealing trailer for Yeezus above (through your favorite shutter shades.)
