“Touch the Sky” is a song by American hip hop artist Kanye West. It was released in early 2006 ..
The music video for “Touch the Sky” was directed by Chris Milk and filmed as a ’70s style short movie about daredevil Evel Kanyevel (played by Kanye West) and his attempt to fly a small rocket across the Grand Canyon. It is done in homage to Evel Knievel’s unsuccessful jump across the Snake River Canyon in 1974.
The video features Pamela Anderson, Nia Long, Tracee Ellis Ross, and the Booker T. Washington High School Marching Band of Houston, Texas, which performs with Lupe Fiasco at a pep rally. The production cost for the music video was approximately $1 million, which is the 25th most expensive music video of all time.
Damm, it was not possible, to use the original sound track … – there was NO lincense on this world available ..
So here “it” comes – the spectacel in the original version and then the mash by Shantal’s blog …

touch the sky dance babygirl dance
Touch the Sky – Kanye West (Lyrics) “Touch The Sky” (feat. Lupe Fiasco)
[Chorus 1] I gotta testify, come up in the spot looking extra fly For the day I die, I’mma touch the sky Gotta testify, come up in the spot looking extra fly For the day I die, I’mma touch the sky Back when they thought pink polo’s would hurt the Roc, Before Cam got the shit to pop, the doors was closed. I felt like Bad Boy’s street team, I couldn’t work the Lox (locks). Now let’s go. Take ’em back to the plan… Me and my momma hopped in the U-Haul van. Any pessimists I ain’t talked to them, Plus, I ain’t have no phone in my apartment. Let’s take ’em back to the club. Least about an hour I would stand on line, I just wanted to dance. I went to Jacob an hour after I got my advance. I just wanted to shine. Jay’s favorite line: “Dog, in due time” Now he look at me, like “Damn, dog, you where I am” A hip hop legend. I think I died in an accident, cause this must be heaven.
[Chorus] [Hook 1 (P. Diddy)] Now let’s take ’em high-igh-igh-igh-igh-igh la la la la la la la (Top of the world, baby. T-Top of the world) Now let’s take ’em high-igh-igh-igh-igh-igh la la la la la la la (Top of the world, baby. T-Top of the world) Back when Gucci was the shit to rock, Back when Slick Rick got the shit to pop, I’d do anything to say “I got it”. Damn, them new loafers hurt my pocket. Before anybody wanted K-West beats, Me and my girl split the buffet at KFC. Dog, I was having nervous breakdowns, Like “Damn, these niggas that much better than me?” Baby, I’m going on an airplane, And I don’t know if I’ll be back again. Sure enough, I sent the plane tickets, But when she came to kick it, things became different. Any girl I cheated on, sheets I skeeted on. I couldn’t keep it home, I thought I needed a Nia Long. I’m trying to write my wrongs, But it’s funny these same wrongs helped me write this song. Now,
[Chorus 2] I gotta testify, come up in the spot looking extra fly For the day you die, You gonna touch the sky (You gonna touch the sky babygirl!) Testify, come up in the spot Looking extra fly For the day you die, You gonna touch the sky Yes, yes, yes guess who’s on third? Lupe steal like Lupin the Third. Hear like ear till I’m beer on the curb Peach fuzz buzz but beard on the verge Slow it down like we’re on the syrup Bottle-shaped body like Mrs. Butterworth’s. But, before you say another word, I’m back on the block like I’m laying on the street. I’m trying to stop lion like a Mum-Ra, But I’m not lying when I’m laying on the beat. Engarge, touché Lupe cool as the unthawed But I still feel as possessed as a gun charge. I come as correct as a porn star, In a fresh pair of steps and my best foreign car. So, I represent the first. Now, let me end my verse right where the horns are like [Chorus 2]
[Hook 2 (P. Diddy)] (We back at home, baby) Sky high I’m, I’m sky high I’m, I’m sky high I’m, I’m sky high I’m, I’m sky high I’m, I’m sky high Sky, Sky high I’m, I’m sky high Yeah!
