Always the artist, Kanye is looking to show off the Middle East in style!
Much like he did with his film/video Runaway, Ye is looking to do a project on the misunderstood region of the world and bring it's culture to a new audience. The music video/short film hybrid is expected to be 30 minutes and the rapper has explored several regions of the area and met with major players in each region while looking for a potential spot to shoot a film.
A source said the following on the project:
He conceived the story, which is set in the Gulf. It’s supposed to showcase the beauty of the region, a piece that’s culturally sensitive and embraces the customs and traditions of the region.
Since it's Ye's baby, everyone wants a piece of the project, so a bidding war has ensued to see where Kanye films the project.
This isn't the first time Ye has filmed a project like this either!
Check out his film/music video, Runaway, above.
Thoughts? Where do U think Kanye should film in the Middle East?
