Kanye Doesn't Have To Make Videos AnymoreBy Noisey Staff
Last week, human baby Kanye West caved under the pressure from an unnamed cold-remedy giant to change the name of his new single "Theraflu" to "Way Too Cold."

Consumer-grade cameras are getting so good at this point that a rising MC can pop out a video over a weekend that rivals multimillion dollar project with top name directors, designers, and talent - look at A$AP, Joey Bada$$, and Wiki for a few recent examples. It's no secret that the wheels are coming off, but it's nice to see people having fun with the music industry as it swan dives into an emptied pool.
