Kanye Goes Coolhunting In Cool World

Nov 10th, 2008 // 2 Comments

It would appear that Kanye (and director Hype Williams) have punched “Ralph Bakshi” into their hipness calculators and come up with a winner. Enough years have passed and enough people have forgotten Bakshi’s flop Cool World that major contrarian points can be scored by using the legendary animator as an inspiration. Cynicism aside, though, it’s a fantastic video. It’s easy to forget that taste and style aren’t just things shallow people do, but elements of aesthetics, and art is nothing without aesthetics.

    Nice. Although I could’ve done without the cigarette.
