    Kanye West has some iconic album covers, but we've only seen them as images. What if they were animated?

    We now have the answer to that question, thanks to Reddit user u/inkeyh. They've animated some of Kanye's early album covers, including Late Registration and My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and they've really brought the covers to life.

    You'll want to check out some of the smaller details, such as the ones pointed out by a commenter like "door creaking for LR, the heartbeat and flatline sound for 808s and then the "drop" of the sample when his head gets stabbed".

    All in all, the animations took about a week. A week spent well, if you ask us. They've animated the feel of the Graduation bear perfectly!
