88-Keys & Kanye West NEW video for “Stay Up (Viagra)” on MTV
The Story Behind The Video
Thanks to a couple of hours in the makeup chair, Kanye West became a dirty old man! Recently in Los Angeles, West and one of his best friends, producer 88-Keys (West, Musiq Soulchild, Mos Def), wore prosthetics to look like senior citizens while shooting the video for “Stay Up (Viagra)”. The two - aged about 35 years - took to the streets of Hollywood with a couple of young beauties on their arms.
Early in the evening, the duo pulled up to the historic Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in a stretch Cadillac Escalade limousine, with a crowd of around 100 tourists waiting for them to emerge. With everyone positioned for photo-ops, the two stepped out of the vehicle with their honeys and walked across the famous cement handprints, with the gaggle of fans clicking away.
‘Ye and Keys simply walked up to the front of the theater and back to the limo - the whole scene lasted only a couple of minutes.
“Stay Up! (Viagra)” is a single off of 88-Keys’ debut LP, ‘The Death of Adam’, executive-produced by Kanye. And if you’re wondering what the song is about, it’s exactly what you think.
