In anticipation of the Olympic Games, Kanye West made a music video that resembles the sports event with him being a sprinter.
Kanye West apparently is still spawning singles from his 2007 album "Graduation" with the sixth and the latest being "Champion". The song that captures his distant relationship with his father has been accompanied with a music video that was premiered on his official blog on Tuesday, August 12.
The video is directed by Neon, featuring West in a Muppet form, participating in Unified Games, a sports event very much similar to the Olympic Games. His Muppet who wears his signature glasses represents U.S.A. in the 100 m sprint field but he had to face a trial first on his eligibility to participate in the games due to his 'difference'.
On other news, West on Sunday, August 10 joined Lil Wayne on stage for a remix collaboration of the latter's hit single "Lollipop". Wayne was one of the scheduled line-ups of the Virgin Mobile Festival in Baltimore but West's appearance was a surprise act. The "Stronger" rapper also popped his face again on the stage for a freestyle set plus "Touch the Sky" and a couple more.
