The musical styling of Kanye West, DJ Khaled, Rick Ross are center stage in the ‘I Wish You Would/Cold’ Video.

The release is a lengthy mashup of the two title tracks from the upcoming ‘Cruel Summer’ collaborative project by West. The short plays up the dark facet of urban culture. Rappers are situated in a dark brick-lined tunnel to create an eerie funhouse effect of dramatic musicality. The superstars all sport all-black outfits, and Kaye West shines with his knack for couture hip-hop style.

When the video proceeds to ‘Cold,’ there is a surprise appearance from Kanye’s infamous starlet girlfriend -- Kim Kardashian. She appears in a whirl of sensual sleek style at the exact moment that Kanye raps, "I admit that I fell in love with Kim."

The music video is a minimalist show of urbanite culture, catchy rhythms and the signature excessive fashion of the hip-hop set. Stats for Celebrity-Ridden Rap Shorts Trending: Older & Chilly
