Kanye hit London yesterday to give the chosen few a preview of his forth-coming album and premier debut film; Runaway at Bafta.
Rather than simply playing tracks from the album, Kanye played the 45 minute film that he created which featured 7 of the tracks from the forth-coming album, ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’, which drops on November 22nd.
After the 45 minute film was shown, Kanye hosted a Q&A which was only supposed to be 5 questions, but actually turned into a 2 hour long session. He answered every single question, and encouraged people to get involved and participate.
It was a invaluable experience for any Ye’ stan, and a truly inspiring evening.
It’s clear that Kanye is constantly evolving as an artist and creator.
His passion and vision for creating art is far bigger than Hip-Hop. He actually said that as an individual you only have 80 to 90 years to make an impact in a lifetime. He isn’t wasting any time at all.
I’m not sure if all of his original fans will be able to keep up up with him, as Kanye stays being that unpredictable, creative work in progress, in the flesh.
Watching the film, its clear that he has another smash album on his hands. It’s basically ’808′s & College Graduation’.
Amongst many things, Kanye revealed the following:

More shots after the jump..
Awate raps to Kanye as he leaves the venue. It was a 16, which turned into a 32, then a 64, could have ended up being a 128…..
the point is, he held Ye’s attention.
