it said, ‘It’s Kanye, do you have time to rap?’ And then suddenly my phone rang and someone said, ‘Kanye got your number and he wants you to write this promo for Yeezus,’ ” Ellis told MTV News. “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.” The new short clip casts “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star and noted Patrick Bateman lookalike, Scott Disick, in the lead role alongside Kim Kardashian’s bestie, Jonathan Cheban (who is in for Jared Leto’s character). After a pro-Kanye monologue, “New Slaves” plays in the background as Disick hacks away at Cheban, mirroring a scene from the movie. While it may have seemed like unusual casting, Disick is in Kanye’s inner circle (he’s dating Kourtney Kardashian) and is already Ellis-approved as a Bateman stand-in . “I had tweeted many times about Scott Disick and ‘American Psycho’ and we had gone back and forth, and so it all kind of just came together very, very quickly,” Ellis explained.

However, Kanye is apparently willing to buy his way out of the predicament in what is legally referred to as a ‘civil compromise’. Kanye West ‘Will Not Be Charged’ Following Alleged Photographer Attack Kanye West takes a stroll (WENN) Kanye has been getting himself into trouble with photographers frequently over recent months – and was also filmed aggressively telling one to “never talk” to him. He’s also said to be petrified for the wellbeing of his daughter, North – with a source recently telling Now: “It may seem slightly paranoid, but he’s deadly serious about it. “Kanye’s terrified they could be the target of a kidnap attempt – or worse.

Kanye West issues completed ‘Black Skinhead’ video

Whatever its called, the album will be his first release since his 2011 collaboration with Jay-Z, Watch the Throne. Clearly not content with being a king, now West has his sights set even higher. But weve come to expect such controversial antics from the rapper. This is a man who told America that George Bush hates black people; who stole Taylor Swifts award out of her hands onstage; who says his greatest pain in life is that he will never be able to watch himself perform. A man who is now rumoured to be calling his unborn child Khrist. Lets face it, he probably wont (hopefully).
