The new video for Kanye West's "Flashing Lights" just dropped. It's hard core! Just check it out - Kanye makes a quick cameo. I like that the video can hold up with out the artist as a focal point. It reminds me of Bjork's digital cameo appearance in "Joga". The short moment he appears is a vital part of the story and impactful because you only see him at that one moment. Thankfully, it wasn't hacked by the record company with performance pieces intercut. Kanye is keeping it fresh and turning the hip-hop world around and adding a bit of intelligence and creativity to the mix.
