Vidz: Kanye West "Welcome to Heartbreak"

Not exactly a Christian rap video, it's still a clean and openly transparent track from Kanye's Autotune experiment album.

Just listen to those haunting first lines:

My friend showed me pictures of his kids

and all I could show him was pictures of my cribs

He said his daughter got a brand new report card

and all I got was a brand new sports car...

Where did I go wrong?

Sounds like a guy who could relate to the author of Ecclesiastes, no?

Ecclesiastes 5:10-11

Whoever loves money never has money enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income. This too is meaningless.

As goods increase, so do those who consume them. And what benefit are they to the owner except to feast his eyes on them?

This clip is also wildly original in its visual style. Don't trip, it ain't your PC - it's just 'Ye getting punchy with the pixels.
