Kanye West, Framed

Framed

Hello, again, readers, and welcome back to Framed... The Blog That Likes You. We don't want to get too far into 2008 without recognizing a man who was perhaps last year's pre-eminent artist: Kanye West.

Last September, Kanye released his third album, Graduation, the same day that 50 Cent released his latest, Curtis, and country star Kenny Chesney released Just Who I Am: Poets And Pirates.  And, although this blog featured both 50 and Kenny in short order, we somehow overlooked Kanye, whose album was easily the best-selling of the three.

It's gnawed at us ever since, so we've decided to make amends by kicking off the year with Kanye's exceptional '04 video, "Jesus Walks."  There were actually three different versions of this video, but we're sticking with the one that was widely seen on MTV.

Compellingly, the video shows how faith can redeem even the lowest among us.  All three of the videos for "Jesus Walks" were regarded as controversial when released, but we'll let you be the judge.

And, as always, please let us know what you think!
