Kanye West New Video: “Coldest Winter”… Depression or ILLUMINATI?!?

- By Bossip Staff

Kanye West is slowly but surely creepin’ his way back to the music scene. We have the latest video, Coldest Winter, from his 808’s and Heartbreak album. The video is extremely dark, we know some people are going to yell “ILLUMINATI” but don’t really think that’s the case here.

Pop the Top and See for Yourself

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Director Nabil Elderkin said for “Coldest Winter,” one of the most personal records on the emotional project, based on West’s past relationship with his former fiance and the lost of his mother, the video isn’t as intense as their previous work together.

“It’s pretty minimalistic,” he said. “It’s slow and very visual. I just wanted to catch the vibe of the song and not get too literal. Because the lyrics are very close to Kanye and go much deeper than the video goes, obviously hearing the song you know it’s very emotional.”

The director wrote the treatment for the project and described the final product as a boundary-pushing effort compared to their past work. According to Elderkin, the pair experimented in the visual medium in a way they haven’t ever done before. He said the process was more challenging for him, particularly since West wasn’t a part of the editing process and only saw the final version.

    I liked the high def cinematography. It wasn’t very deep at all. Girl running from demons and throw herself over a cliff.

    Flashing Lights was much better.

    Why does everything have to be Illuminati affiliated nowadays with these celebs?

  • drenk

    @I luv Ignant Negroes & WTF

    you two dummies didnt catch the sarcasm i guess, i like blaming everything on the illuminati AS A JOKE cuz there are people on here that actually try to link everything to illuminati shadow gov’t dealings. funny that they didnt start this blame game until it became popular to link jay z, bey, rih, kanye to the illuminati

    BUT scientists were afraid of nuclear winter during the cold war and HYPOTHESIZED that what would happen: -The nuclear winter scenario predicts that the huge fires caused by nuclear explosions (particularly from burning urban areas) would loft massive amounts of dark smoke and aerosol particles from the fires into the upper troposphere / stratosphere. At 10-15 kilometers (6–9 miles) above the Earth’s surface, the absorption of sunlight would further heat the smoke, lifting it into the stratosphere where the smoke would persist for years, with no rain to wash it out. This would block out much of the sun’s light from reaching the surface, causing surface temperatures to drop drastically.-

    so next time you see me post about the illuminati, i dont really believe it, i think its become a trend to blame illuminati for all things bad
