“Remember That?” Track Of The Day: Kanye West
“Touch the Sky” is a song by hip hop artist Kanye West. It was released in early 2006 as the fourth single from his second album, Late Registration. The music video for “Touch the Sky” was directed by Chris Milk and filmed as a ’70s style short movie about daredevil Evel Kanyevel (played by Kanye West) and his attempt to fly a small rocket across the Grand Canyon. It is done as a homage to Evel Knievel’s unsuccessful jump across the Snake River Canyon in 1974. The video features Pamela Anderson, Nia Long, Tracee Ellis Ross, and the Booker T. Washington High School Marching Band of Houston, Texas, which performs with Lupe Fiasco at a pep rally.
