This year at the Tribeca Film Festival, one of the most important pieces of music equiptment—the Roland TR-8o8 drum machine was honored, and who better to accept the award than Kanye West and Rick Rubin? The 8o8 drum has meant so much to the hip-hop culture and few have done more with it than Ye and Rick—however, they were unable to make it to the actual awards ceremony.
Therefore, this acceptance video from director Mark Romanek, which pretty strange, was used instead. The video features clips of both Ye and Rick, with crazy graphics and weird sounds throughout.
