At this point in his career, with a wealth of extravagant fashion shows and concert tours behind him, it is easy to overlook the excess of a Kanye West event as mere show-offishness. Though West may never be one to shy away from show-offishness, he is certainly not the kind of artist to make something big if it doesn't serve a purpose. And it doesn't get much bigger than his stage sets, which happen to be the subject of an immersive new documentary on his ability to integrate stagecraft into his work.

Picking up from his first true tour "event," the documentary explores how Yeezy's Glow in the Dark Tour became such a game changer for the medium. But this doesn't even come close to explaining the level of detail and careful consideration that went into the now-infamous Yeezus Tour, one inspired by the films of surrealist filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky.

Watch the full documentary above to get clued in to Kanye West's inner brain activity. The Life of Pablo is available now. Stream it below via Spotify:

In other music news, Bruno Mars has announced his new album in the most lavish style possible: by creating the most decadent music video of his career. Watch it right here.
