Kanye West – “Yeezus” Short Film Inspired By “American Psycho” | Video

By - June 18th, 2013

Along with his newly minted title as “Dad” to his newborn daughter over the weekend, Kanye West is having “the best week ever” now that his sixth studio album, Yeezus, is finally available. In light of the album’s official launch today, West uploaded a short film as promotion. Previewed earlier at a listening party in Los Angeles, the video is a new take on Bret Easton Ellis‘ 1991 novel American Psycho (as well as the 2000 film starring Christian Bale). With reality TV personality Scott Disick reprising the role of serial killer Patrick Bateman, the film also features fellow “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” alum Jonathan Cheban. Both an odd and dark fantasy, the NSFW video is on view after the jump. In the meantime, Kanye West’s Yeezus is now available for purchase here.
