Kanye West continues his big-thinking ways in his video work with another mini-movie from the video meister Hype Williams. Rihanna and Kid Cudi make appearances in the video and the tune itself features vocals from a veritable who’s who of pop music, including Elton John, Alicia Keys and John Legend. This is West’s fourth single from the critically heralded My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, which clocked in at #4 on our best album list last year.
