Kanye West released the video for his already popular song, Famous. The unveiling was at a larger than life premiere attended by A-list celebrities and some lucky Tidal members at The Forum in LA. The Life of Pablo has given us a different sounding Ye and another look into his interesting mind. "Name one genius that ain't crazy," Kanye shouts in his song "Feedback." The video displays Ye, Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Amber Rose, Donald Trump, Caitlyn Jenner, Bill CosbyRay J, Chris Brown, Anna Wintour, and George W. Bush.

Allegedly the video is a recreation of Vincent Desiderio's painting “Sleep,” and in an interview with Vanity Fair, Kanye revealed that it was filmed over the course of three months with multiple collaborators. He also added, “It’s not in support or anti any of (the people in the video). It’s a comment on fame.”

So what's your take on the Famous video? Has Ye gone too far? Sike...that was a trick question, we all know Kanye is limitless and will always defend his artistic freedom and never constrain his art!
