Kanye West premieres the music video for “Mercy” which features Big Sean,
Pusha T and 2 Chainz and serves as the first single from GOOD Music’s upcoming debut album Cruel Summer, which is set to be released this summer.
Yeezy…he’s such a creative queen! Gotta luv him!!!
@DARKAQUA , PLEASE STOP !!! THIS GAY FOOL IS A TRUE ASS HOLE ..WHAT SHOULD YOUNG BLACK MALES LOOK UP TO WHEN THEY LISTEN TO THEIR FUNK …THIS RAT LOOKING JAYZ ASSLICKING GAY FOOL IS SO FAKE AND FULL OF HIMSELF . THESE FOOLS SAY ONE THING AND THEN LIVE A FAKE LIFE TRYING TO BE SEEN AS…….. H O L L Y W O O D …CLOWNS . HE’S A FAKE GAY , SHAME , KEEP KISSING KIM’S FAKE ASS , SHE’S UR TYPE JUST LIKE UR BRO JAYZ AND HIS FAKE WIFE BEY …FAKE FOOLISH ASSES
The only stars anyone should be looking up to are the ones in the sky… Young black males should have other positive males in their lives..We need to stop blaming the ppl on the screen and start blaming parents for their lack of parenting… A role model should be someone you know.. The first one should be a family member.
I admit Kane is full of himself but to bring BEYONCE into your comment is irrelevant. She’s one of the last good female R&B artist we have. She doesn’t have a think to do with kanye’s ignorance.
this was a very imaginative video, it made me actually stop, listen and appreciate the song more.
Finally decent treatment to a video. LUV!
i love love love the way this video was shot! i’m wondering was that teyanna taylor with the long skirt?? any1 know?
i think it was her ! & kid cudi jumpin around , love this !
Yes, that was her. Most of G.O.O.D. Music was in it.
Yeah that was Teyana. Peep the Cudi cameo also. I can’t wait for Cruel Summer. I hope it has a MBDTF feel to it. G.O.O.D. Music!
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS SONG!….the video..not so much….I was hype to see this video too! I just knew Kanye was going to be extra creative!..I was actually bored….BUT THIS IS STILL MY JAM THO
I was disappointed. Good effects with the split screen doubles, but I was bored. Love the song, though.
Okay, I liked how they were duplicated; but they all look like they didn’t know what they were doing. It looked so fake; like they were trying to be somebody they really weren’t. Kanye, is so lost; he tries so hard…but it’s not working….LOL
I dont see how this was creative…but i guess maybe it’s just me *shrugs*
I don’t think a music video has ever been shot like this before – I thought it was pretty dope. *heads to iTunes to buy the single* lol
KANYE AND HIS GROUP , LOOKS LIKE LOST MONKEYS JUMPING AROUND .
HOT97 Program Director Ebro speaks on Nicki Minaj & Hanging up on Lil Wayne. video http://bit.ly/Nie8zK
It looked like they didn’t know what to do with themselves.
Liked the Cudi cameo.
Funny nobody talks about the opening line and what it means but we all nod our head to this joint…smh. The opening line refers t the furnace of hell it’s a biblical verse Kanye switched up a little and made to sound like gibberish. Whatever reason he put it in the song for he definitely tried to disguise it. I mean don’t understand why artists get upset over this whole illuminati stuff but still try to make people talk about it by referencing satanic phrases within their songs. We need to be more careful what we listen to or at least know what we are listening too. Real Talk
what do you say about that, dummy??
Dummy trace the origin of the verse to the bible dumb ass. I think the bible was first.
The lyrics of the original sample are:
“Well, it is a weeping and mourning and a gnashing of teeth in the dancehall and who don’t have teeth gon’ run pon’ dem gum cause when time it comes to my sound it is the champion sound. The bugle that blow for many time and it still have one more time left ’cause the amount of stripe what there pon’ our shoulder..” …and so on.
The weeping and mourning thing I would understand if there is any truth to it. But honestly, what Bible verse reference is being made?
the reason you’re a dummy is because that dancehall song and the scripture verse that’s sung on it came out before kanye’s sample of it but yet i’m sure you weren’t running around crying illumanti/be afraid of the black arts and the devil and all that kind of stuff in regards to dance hall song b/c nobody knows who that artist so it didn’t matter if he’s supposedly talking about the devil but on the other hand kanye west is huge star so when he uses of course it matters and of course he’s actually talking about the devil, right? that’s why you’re a dummy and simpleton and a sheep!
I know that these lyrics are taken from a dancehall song. However the weeping moaning and gnashing of teeth part is in the bible it refers to the furnace of hell or the second Armagedon. Just look it up and do your research. Kanye is insinuating that he’s the master or king of hip hop, but to open your song with that verse regardless if it was a dancehall excerpt or not is interesting especially since he is always denouncing these illuminati theories. All I’m saying is do thorough research before you start dancing around to stuff. And just because something was taken from another song doesn’t mean the research stops there. I’m not going to tell you all the history behind it that’s for you to read up on if it interests you.
@ OK. You’re just mad because you didn’t know it was a biblical verse first. You thought you had showed someone something by putting that link up but in all actuality it made you look stupid. And furthermore your synopsis of what I think is dead wrong. Nobody is preaching anything about illuminati and even with the dancehall track it’s weird that verse out the bible was chosen to put in a song. Stop arguing about nonsense and do your research everything isn’t a debate. Shut up and listen. That’s how you learn.
RD,you are right. I’ve heard this song multiple times, I really liked it the past few weeks. I’ve been listening to it in the car and it always gets stuck in my head. especially the intro. actually, just the lines “It is a weeping and a moaning and the gnashing of teeth” were playing in my head over and over but this was before I looked up what the lyrics really were. Last night I was in the car with a friend and halfway through the song I realized something wasn’t right. I realized that everyone’s nodding their heads and shit to this song and we don’t even know what it’s saying- it’s been changed from it’s original format to make it a little bit harder to hear the real lyrics. There could be many reasons why Kanye put this sample in the song. One theory that came to mind was so that people would get used to those words, sing them along as if they mean nothing. It’s a very important part of the bible, because it tells you what to expect if you go to hell. Weeping…Moaning…Gnashing of teeth…doesn’t sound too fun does it? Another theory I have is to have people look up online what the guy in the song is saying. when you start to type the words in on google, only results of the song mercy come up. Before this song came out, if you typed those words on google, only bible websites would emerge. “…Will be cast into the fiery furnace. There will be weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth” That comes from a verse in the book of matthew. Yes, It’s occured to me that a jamaican guy made that song. He is blatantly referring to the bible, as later in the song he says”praise the champion he will lead us to goodness” or something like that. But as we all know,Kanye did not put this in his song Mercy to glorify God…so why?
At GWW -applause- thaaaank yooooou!!!!!! Love your comment & agree 100%. Espe orally the part about looking up on google. Even when I type “bible weeping and moaning”… Etc etc it still brings up stuff about kanye’s song…. No one barely knows where it came from but once my boyfriend told me I lost interest in the song & try not to list to it itself but as its entirety including the message it’s presenting. The only reason I ended up on this page is because I typed in “bible weeping and moaning and gnashing of teeth” and it brought me to this page -_- sooo I decided to read the comments & see what other people were saying
True. I was thinking the same thing. I wish I knew he decided to use that phrase though. Oh well.
Doesnt matter why the Biblical verses are in there, but that they are there. And there is one point taken that matters….Christ is preached….even if He isnt glorified correctly, He is still preached. And if the words seem to haunt some that is because they dont belong in this song and you know it, if others think its cool the world has you.
Y’all riding Kanye nuts because this video is nothing creative. They’re in a park garage for crying out loud… I love the song the video however is a bit annoying.
How many videos have you seem when they were simply in a parking garage? Not a lot. That’s the creative part. It shows that you can have a successful video without having fancy things
Lamborghini …yada yada yada…not hatin just can’t Relate. Song is so typical.
why do so many people hate kanye? weird. anyways the video is dope. shots are good. styling was freeezey. love white dust everywhere. thank God they didnt have wht teez on as usual. i remember when missy first vid everyone dissed it cause it was out od rap norm. now everyone jocks it and you will too.
MAKE SURE YALL DOWLOAD N LISTEN 2 DOLLAR SIGN MIXTAPE SWAGSTAR FLY FOR GLORY 101 ON DatPiff WEBSITE COMMERCIAL N FIRE… http://www.datpiff.com/Dollasign-Swagstar-Fly-For-Glory-101-mixtape.356558.html
I likes! I likes ! Nice vid! I thought that was Cudi, I just love his style. I love the song even not knowing what the chorus is.
Zombies…that’s what they like to me.
Exactly I don’t believe in all of this illuminatti stuff but why keep putting ambiguous messages or images out there to make people wonder. Anything for attention in my opinion. All this darkness, headwraps, blank staring in the camera. Kanye isn’t dumb he loves to spark controversy and that is exactly what he’s doing intentionally. Hot song though.
Pusha T needs to lay off that powder…smh. Such a shame he would let Kanye turn him out.
Finally a video that doesnt cause a seizure lol but none the less I wouldve loved it regardless 2 chainz and big sean look hella good as usual good job yall
Who is that skinny white guy dancing around in the video, he doesnt rap but i wanna know who he is.
Food For Thought… Don’t know very much about actual bible verse but Kanye since beginning have referenced GOD his songs. Don’t be scared or appalled. It’s enlightenment through hip hop. Whatever your denomination there’s been talk of zombies, Mayans, revelation, armegeddon, illuminati. I think it’s simply a way to get people to think past Lamborghinis & thirsty chicks! IE. “ignorant sh..” by JayZ
…or more simply. I’m so cold, I’m iceee, Im on my stuff. “things are 2 good 2 be true”. Must be my judgement cause I’m Lovin this sh! Lol
Yeah your judgement is clouded, and im NOT judging you, im seeing what you wrote in a perspective you cant….one thats not your own…lol you’ll be alright as long as you accept Christ to come into your heart, then with that He will reveal the things of darkness, in which you are blinded by….lol kinda ironic huh blinded by darkness, it cant blind you but it can make it to where you feel blind, after you see the Light, you’ll know what i mean.
First thing: Does anyone think that if Jesus were here He would be all like’ I approve this song!’ lol HELL no he wouldn’t in fact HELL is the precipice here, and the singer is standing on the edge of it. To admit these Bible vs. into such a song is scornful to say the least, there is no respect for Christ, that Kanye has shown here. And for those who say Kanye is about Christ, this says otherwise. The Devil likes to exploit his own, and loves Bible vs. concerning him, the Devil will quote verses concerning him because he is full of pride, he will make you to believe it is about something else when it is in fact a tool to blind those who otherwise are spiritually weak…knowledge is the best defense so read the Bible and gain some Spiritual knowledge that could help you. The song is garbage.
Wise!!!!!!!i commented after u but didn’t realize that I could reply,so read it pls
This song is how jesus describes HELL in the bible. This song is a devils prayer
“it is a weeping and a moaning and a gnashing of teeth” jesus describes excactly that in the bible as to what he calls hell! Look it up Matthew 13:42
You ever woder y this song has a catchy toon to it? U cnt helpBUT to bob your head!!! Although Some of you ppl have no clue what your talking about! The beginning of his song IS about the pits of hell! Weeping…mourning…champion song is ALL relevant to hell! YES it was out b4 Kanye, NO he wasn’t the creator of the hook, BUT he also had to know the meaning of it to put it in a song called MERCY!!!THINK ABOUT IT!!The anti-Christ s in the Bible n he’s part of it. In hell u will hear weeping ,mourning,n the feeling of demon biting chunks out of your flesh without actually biting you!! This isn’t the only MSG out there y’all!!
@SKARPS152 OMGGEE THANKS!!!!! Your so awesome in knowledge. Just bc he mentioned God in a few songs he’s a saint??HA…SATIN HAS A SWEET SPIRIT AS WELL!! He will show u the things that you like and enjoy to lure u n! That’s y u must be strong in His word!!
sorry its taken so long to get back, and i agree with you so much, in that, we must stay strong in HIS Word! Its in 2nd Corinthians 11:14 And it is no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light(KJV/Amplified Parallel Bible). Be strong in HIS Word
Ok kanye fans, I know you’re going to be mad and say I’m hatin (I’m fully prepared for that) But I can assure you, I am not because once upon a time I WAS a kanye fan. However, that was during his “through the wire” and “Workout plan” days. This new kanye is garbage and so is this song. The song is absolute garbage and that’s WITHOUT even mentioning the fact that he is INDEED using the description of hell in his song. YES I know that he is sampling a Fuzzy Jones song (Fuzzy Jones is the guy who sings the original song) but just as so many comments before mine, that doesn’t change the fact that Fuzzy himself is using the scriptural reference. Therefore, not a thing changes when kanye uses Fuzzy’s words. I saw a comment that said Fuzzy isn’t well known…well, what does that say about the fact that it looks like kanye went out of his way to find a song by a guy, that people barely know that uses THESE EXACT WORDS? But like I said, everyone else already talked about this so, I’m not going to leave it at that. I tried to watch the video to see what everyone was talking about and couldn’t get past a minute and 33 seconds. Besides the camera effects, there is absolutely nothing cool about this video. Besides when they rap, kanye pusha and 2 chainz spend majority of the video standing around like lost morons trying to be tough guys. This is my opinion and how I feel about it so I hope no one gets mad. If you like it, you can always ignore my comment because it shouldn’t affect how you enjoy it. But at the end of the day, this is a heap of burning garbage in my books.
*I’m just going to leave it that (my bad)
I agree with you. Not that i’m saying i have your view points …those are yours alone. I agree with you that its a heaping pile of trash from my perspectives and beliefs.
I liked as much as you’ll obtain performed proper here. The sketch is tasteful, your authored subject matter stylish. nevertheless, you command get bought an nervousness over that you want be turning in the following. unwell certainly come more before again as exactly the similar nearly very often within case you defend this increase.
I’ve said that least 6089803 times. SKC was here…
