Kanye West Has Another Collab On The Way With ‘American Psycho’ Author Bret Easton Ellis
Months before Kanye West‘s Yeezus was announced, there were rumors that the album would be called Black American Psycho, and leading up to the album’s release, West unveiled a promo featuring guys from the Kardashian Krew reenacting an iconic scene from American Psycho. The clip used reworked, Yeezus-centric dialogue written by the American Psycho author himself, Bret Easton Ellis. Turns out Kanye wants to keep channeling the American Psycho mastermind, as Ellis revealed to MTV how their partnership came about, mentioning that there’s another collaboration on the way.
“I just got a text one day… it said, ‘It’s Kanye, do you have time to rap?'” Ellis recalls. “And then suddenly my phone rang and someone said, ‘Kanye got your number and he wants you to write this promo for Yeezus.‘ And so we went back and forth on it and he wanted it done, like, that day. So I wrote it very quickly and they shot it two or three days later.” But the work didn’t end there. Ellis added, “And then Kanye and I have been meeting about writing a script for him and so that’s a project that’s kind of in the works.”
Could it be another short film in the vein of “Runaway”? Or something altogether different and unrelated to his current album? Leave us your best guesses in the comments below, or on Facebook and Twitter.
