Kanye West joined Jay-Z on stage at Yankee Stadium in New York on Tuesday night (Sept. 14) to wrap up the historic Home and Home concert series with Eminem, but earlier in the day, West made his rounds at New York Fashion Week where he spilled the details on his upcoming movie ‘Runaway.’

West told New York Magazine that he had wrapped shooting on the 40-minute film and was hard at work on the editing process, forcing him to take a leave of absence from the Internet. “I haven’t tweeted much in the past couple days because I’ve got so much work to work on,” he said. “I’m color-correcting this film I shot in Prague a couple weeks ago.”

According to West, the 40-minute film-noir style movie ‘Runaway’ was inspired by his struggles in the spotlight during the past year. “It’s the story of a phoenix,” he said. “It’s been in my heart for a while. It’s maybe parallel to my career. I threw a Molotov cocktail on my career last year, in a way, and I had to come back as a better person.”

Kanye gave fans the first listen of ‘Runaway’ during his appearance at MTV’s VMAs on Sunday (Sept. 12) where he unceremoniously toasted to “douchebags” and “scumbags,” during an apologetic performance. The studio version of the track appeared on the Internet on Tuesday and it will be featured on his upcoming fifth studio album.
