Kanye West's Olympic Fever

August 12, 2008

How bad does Kanye West have Olympic fever? So much so that he decided to dedicate his latest video to the athletes of the summer games.

In “Champion,” Ye transforms into a shades-wearing puppet and enters the highly competitive Unified Games, a spoof on the Olympics. While spittin’ some Chicago flows over his Steely Dan-sampled track, Mr. West lifts weights, does a bunch of pull-ups and works his puppet legs on the racetrack. I never knew Ye was so patriotic.
