Kanye West takes it back to Chicago, for “Homecoming,” the fourth video off Graduation. The video has a sublime quality and comforting feel that should reassure those of you that thought Kanye slipped into a dank pool on the dark side, with the demented, slightly morbid, “Flashing Lights” teaser video. I’m just mad that video ended with a shovel to the stomach. Was he shot, killed, and buried Goodfellas style, too? I needed closure.
Like I said, brighter days this go round. Kanye wins again. Can we say most consistent rapper of this time? Ok.
