Kanye West comes Under Fire for "All of the Lights" video

Once Kanye West released My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, he was back on top of the game. Late in the summer, he released the first single, "Power." A short video was released in promotion of the album and "Runaway" was promoted as the next single.

"Runaway" became a minor hit, but the album has sold very well over the past few months. Some credit Kanye West for saving the state of hip hop in 2010. Recently, he has been receiving heavy radio play for his "All of the Lights" single.

With Rihanna, Kanye West performed the song during halftime at the 2011 NBA All-Star Game. Upon seeing the performance, Donald Trump was heated with Rihanna after she backed out of his gig for her, claiming to be sick. Now, the video has caused trouble.

Earlier this week, the official video for "All of the Lights" was released and now Kanye West is being accused of stealing the theme from a movie. Many video critics have panned the video for the popular single for that lone reason. He is being accused of biting the video for the French film, Enter the Void. The producers of the French film have not commented on the Kanye West video.
