Fans no doubt recall Kanye West‘s infamous interaction with Taylor Swift, in which he rushed the stage, snatched the mic, and proclaimed “I’ma let you finish but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time!” Well, it would appear Kanye West has found another contender. Last week, Tyga delivered some sexually charged visuals for his Offset collaboration “Taste,” which features twerking models, roller skating, and cameos from 2 Chainz and Wiz Khalifa. While hardly groundbreaking, the simplistic clip is not without charm, and for whatever reason, the video seems to have connected with Kanye West on a personal level.
T-Raww took to Instagram to share a message he received from Ye, who slid into his DMs with some praise. “This is the best video of all-time,” says Kanye. “Thank you for this perfection.” Naturally, Tyga took the co-sign with pride, broadcasting for his all his loyal followers to see.
Admittedly, it’s difficult to give any merit to Kanye’s hyperbolic proclamation; short of some titillating softcore pornography, the clip doesn’t exactly feature much in the way of cinematography. Maybe Kanye is simply excited by that many scantily clad women in one area; he wouldn’t be the first warm blooded male to watch it for the plot. Does Tyga’s latest stack up to the lofty greatness that is Beyonce’s “Single Ladies?” Whoever ends up nominated for the next VMAs may have to bolster security.
