Kanye West Promotes "Yeezus" With "American Psycho"-Inspired Projection

Over the weekend, Kanye West orchestrated a short film projection at his Los Angeles listening party inspired by the 2000 Christian Bale film, "American Psycho."

Kanye West was unable to attend his Los Angeles, California album listening and release party Friday (June 14) due to the birth of his daughter. However, that did not stop the Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam Records superstar from breaking new ground this weekend on the promotional run of Yeezus, which releases tomorrow (June 18).

Rap-Up.com reports that at the event, which took place at L.A.'s Milk Hangar, West organized an authorized projection of a short film in conjunction with his sixth solo album. The film appears to be inspired by the 2000 Horror film, American Psycho, starring Christian Bale and based on the 1991 novel by Bret Easton Ellis. The approximately two-minute clip, captured below by Rap-Up, stars Scott Disnick and Jonathan Cheban in an axe-wielding slasher sequence. Both men have ties to West, especially to his girlfriend and mother of his newborn, Kim Kardashian. Disnick dates Kim's sister Kourtney, and was in attendance at the event, while Cheban is close friend and associate.

Last month, Kanye West orchestrated a series of projections of the Yeezus song "New Slaves" on buildings in over 90 North American cities.

    I don't think Ye is done, but this album is bullshit... After dropping 3 classics (The first 3)... We let him get away with 808 & Heartbreaks (which was aiight)...now he's lost it with this new one.. Not saying the man can't do it anymore, hell he's done in on Cruel Summer and Watch the Throne.

    it's funny because patrick bateman listened to music for clues in participation of generalized conformity... so i guess in that sense, ye was successful. lol. there is not a single iota of originality in this stupid-ass video... you replace the actors and the cd they're listening to with kanye's pick, and this is supposed to be spoutings of genius? fuck off with this bullshit. this is insulting. bitch you're not clever. you're like tumblr. you regurgitate popular images to give yourself a fucking personality. go be a dad.

    • A rap and music fan 1st

      Stop hating man. Your favorite rapper is not breaking the musical boundries that Kanye has. The concepts, the flow, the production, how it all comes together Yeezus is a masterpiece album we will be talking about for years just like his 5 previous albums. I'd rank it like this CD>LR>MBDTF>Yeezus>808s>Graduation
