Kanye West - Amazing ft. Young Jeezy
This is the newest video release from Kanye's Album 808s and Heartbreak. Directed by Hype Williams, who also directed Kanye's Heartless video, this one takes a different approach than the rest of the songs on the album. The video was shot in Hawaii, and a helicopter was used to get numerous dramatic shots of the islands and the coastline. It really brings a new meaning to amazing, and I feel that some of the wide panning shots have a metaphorical connection with Kanye's lyric "my reign is as far as your eyes can see".
