Coodie and Chike
[1]
"Jesus Walks" (version 1) 2004 None Michael Haussman The music video was filmed in California and West is portrayed as a preacher rapping before a congregation from a pulpit.

"Jesus Walks (version 3)" • None Kanye West
Coodie and Chike
Shot in black-and-white, the low-budget video was filmed guerrilla-style in West's hometown of Chicago. It depicts Jesus in the present-day following West as he walks from his home and through his neighborhood to church, performing miracles along the way. [5]
"All Falls Down"
Syleena Johnson Chris Milk
Kanye West
Filmed at the Ontario International Airport and shot from a first-person perspective. West escorts his girlfriend, played by Stacey Dash, from inside their car and throughout the departure terminal to catch her flight. The video illustrates their journey literally through West's eyes, but he is momentarily seen rapping lines when passing by reflective mirrors. Certain scenes are in slow-motion and include cameos by Syleena Johnson, Common, and Kel Mitchell playing the various roles of airport employees. [6]
"The New Workout Plan" • None Little X
Kanye West
The video is tailored in the manner of an infomercial for a series of workout tapes. It boasts cameos from Anna Nicole Smith, Tracee Ellis Ross, Esther Baxter, Vida Guerra, Consequence, GLC, Miri Ben-Ari, John Legend, and West's mascot Dropout Bear and features Fonzworth Bentley performing his guest verse from the remix. The long version of the video contains an extended introduction derived from a skit taken from The College Dropout. [7]
"Diamonds from Sierra Leone" 2005 None Hype Williams The music video was shot entirely in black-and-white and filmed on location in the city of Prague.

The music video concludes with text which reads, "Please purchase conflict-free diamonds." [8]
"Gold Digger" Jamie Foxx [9]
"Heard 'Em Say" (version 1) Adam Levine Michel Gondry Filmed in Macy's flagship department store in New York City, the live-action music video expresss a surrealistic Christmas sentiment with the use of special effects. It depicts West as a homeless father of three young children who stay overnight inside the store which seems to come alive. Adam Levine plays a security guard while co-producer Jon Brion makes a brief cameo appearance. [10]
"Heard 'Em Say" (version 2) • Adam Levine Bill Plympton
Joe DeMaio
Kanye West
The animated music video expresses grayscale pencil-sketch animation. It contains literal interpretations of select lyrics while West is portrayed as a taxicab driver working in a bleak city who picks up troubled passengers and encounters a young boy and his mother. The animated segments are interspersed with live-action scenes of West and Adam Levine performing. [11]

"Can't Tell Me Nothing" (version 2) None Michael Blieden The alternate version features comedian Zach Galifianakis and folk singer-songwriter Will Oldham and filmed at Galifianakis' farm in North Carolina.

[19]
"Flashing Lights" (version 1) • 2008 Dwele Kanye West

Filmed entirely in slow-motion, the video has a Ford Mustang Bullitt roll onto the screen and stop at dusk in the desert outside of Las Vegas, Nevada. Playboy model Rita G. exits the vehicle dressed in a wig, fur coat and large black sunglasses. After walking a distance away from the car, stripping down to her lingerie and setting her clothes on fire, she walks back to the car and opens the trunk to reveal a bound and gagged West. She gently strokes his face and gives him a light kiss before retrieving a nearby shovel and bludgeons him to death as the camera pans out. [20]

"Welcome to Heartbreak" 2009 Kid Cudi NABIL The music video was filmed in Los Angeles and utilizes the visual technique of datamoshing. It contains multi-faceted textures of compression artifacts laced throughout its technicolor visuals. The bleeding pixels, calculated moshes and other manipulated imagery makes it seem as if the software that rendered the final video output a low-resolution, artifact-laden product. West and Kid Cudi appear at various intervals within the transitional music video, with certain shots in super-slow-motion. [28]
