Kanye Accused Of Copying French Film In "All Of The Lights" Video


Kanye Accused Of Stealing “All Of The Lights” Concept

The premiere of Kanye’s new video for “All Of The Lights” is stirring up controversy now that the G.O.O.D. Music head is being accused of stealing the idea from a French film.

Kanye’s new video features the rapper alongside Kid Cudi and Rihanna in black and white scenes before colorful words flash across the screen.

According to some viewers however, the visual is strikingly similar to French Film “Enter The Void.”

Linda Sharp, a writer for TheStirBlog.com, pointed out the similarities saying,

Either it’s a deliberate homage to the film, or… well, maybe nobody thought Kanye’s fans would know anything about relatively obscure French melodramas. Hard to say.”
Ye has yet to respond.
Check out the videos for “Enter The Void” and “All Of The Lights” below.

Did Ye rip off the French film?

    I’m sorry Kanye is not as creative as his fans make him out to be. This is a rip just like most of the things this fella does. Honestly I can’t believe people purchase his records as he sounds like someone who is still learning about studio techniques and drum machines etc. But hey drones will be drones!

    I don’t think the fact he’s a thief makes the song any less crap, in my opinion.

    That French video is ingenious, I love how it works.

    Kanye’s is clearly a hammy attempt. Unfortunately for the guy, I don’t think he had any say in the artistic development and it was probably someone else who stole the idea, likely without realising it, one of the unnamed peons in the business who has probably already been fired for this.

    there is no jumping needed to come to the conclusion…it’s right in front of you “IN ALL OF THE LIGHTS” LOL!!! This was a BITE plain and simple…not faulting Kanye or slandering the song. I think it’s a very good song and I love Kanye…but at the end of the day, yes it was bite probably by someone working under him or Spike.
