Kanye West Debuts “Father Stretch My Hands (Remix)” at “Famous” Premiere
Kanye West premiered his controversial NSFW "Famous" video at a live event Friday (June 24) in Los Angeles. He also debuted something that almost slipped through the cracks as people struggled to process the avant-garde visual, a remix of the The Life of Pablo track "Father Stretch My Hands."
Concocted by electronic DJ duo Dodger Stadium, the newer version of the song dismisses the knock and lyrics from the OG version in exchange for a dreamy, spaced-out acid trip of an instrumental. The only thing that remains the same is slices of Kid Cudi's contribution.
The new version is already making its rounds. 'Ye's right hand man Virgil Abloh used a nearly 40 minute loop of the remix to score his Off White fashion show today in Paris.
The new version is fire, but clearly West's new eye-popping visual was the highlight of the event. The video features what looks like wax figures of a bunch of celebrities lying in bed naked together, including George Bush, Anna Wintour, Donald Trump, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Taylor Swift, Ray J, Amber Rose, Caitlyn Jenner and Bill Cosby, plus of course Kanye and Kim in the middle.
Chris Brown has spoken up about his likeness being used in the vid. “Why I gotta have the plumbers butt/ crack showing WAX figure?” said Brown referring to his half-exposed buttocks in the video. “This nigga KANYE CRAZY, talented, but crazy 😭😭😭🏆,” he added.
