Kanye West's 'BLKKK SKKKN HEAD' music video, directed by Nick Knight, has made the cut on the list of the best music videos that defined the decade. The online site Digital Artists listed it's top 15 most creative and innovate visuals from the past ten years and Knight and West's collaboration was selected for its intimidatingly unrefined VFX work and masterful use of colour and iconography.

The 2013 music video demonstrated the usage of pioneering 3D scanning and motion as well as West's commitment to experimenting with new creative techniques. Knight and West continued their collaboration later that year with the release of the music video 'Bound 2', which caused much division and discussion in the media.
