36. "Love Lockdown" (2008)

Director: Simon Henwood
Album: 808s & Heartbreak

Either there's a war going on or it's all Kanye's head. Or both. This is the visual representation of how you feel after a break-up. The video mostly takes place in Kanye's real life apartment, one so nice and clean that you understand why Kanye said he doesn't play rap music in it. Yeezy mopes around the apartment and doesn't even look into the camera until two minutes in. Meanwhile, African tribes run amok and head into battle, reminiscent of the tribal drums on the beat. You might assume it's all abstract until you see 'Ye against wall as the camera begins to shake. Suddenly, his white blazer is looking like a straitjacket and you realize it's all in his head. American Psycho-inspired, obviously..
