Kanye West Accused Of Swagger Jacking?

09.13.07 10 years ago 48 Comments

I was sent a link from Wild 94.9 about Kanye’s new video, “Good Life,” being similair to Justice’s, “D.A.N.C.E.,” video. The site acknowledges they have the same director, but they bring up the fact that Kanye stormed the stage when Justice won at the MTV European Music Awards and Kanye claimed he didn’ see their video. What do you guys think?

Newmi clarifies the situation

Let’s get the facts straight, Kanye lost to “we are friends” by Justice, not D.A.N.C.E.

Kanye stated in numerous interviews that he would have gladly lost to D.A.N.C.E. as he thought the video was “genius”. This was then followed by him mentioning in more than one interview to “look out for my new video done with the team that did the Justice video, it’s going to be hot.”

So with blatant prior credit and a big up for the video that inspired it, I can’t really see how this is in any way swagger jacking.
