293-

1 Aug

The movie Akira is considered an Anime classic of the highest caliber. Kanye West pictures himself as a classic of the highest caliber so it’s not a shock to hear that when Hype Williams made the video for Song 293- “Stronger” by Kanye West that he based it on the movie. The more shocking thing is that the song incorporates Daft Punk’s “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” and they appear in the video. This seems not to be a case of a rapper using a random sample, Kanye seems to be quite the fan of the original. In the end, what we have here is a song that is ridiculously catchy with a cool video, which is what any artist wants and enough to keep this song-a-day blogger happy.
