Kanye West Changes His Tune About Radio?

(Radio.com) At Governors Ball last month, Kanye West railed against the politics of promoting a new album. He specifically addressed the belief that artists need to have hit radio singles. Letting the crowd know, it was his choice to keep Yeezus off the airwaves.

"Honestly, when I listen to radio, that ain't where I wanna be no more," he said. "Honestly, at this point, I could give a f*** about selling a million records as long as I put out an album this summer that y'all can rock to all motherf***ing summer."

But it seems he's changed his mind about the whole radio promotion thing. According to Def Jam (via Billboard), "Black Skinhead" has been cleaned up and sent off to radio stations around the country. They also confirmed that a video for the song, which Kanye performed on SNL back in May, is in the works.

Jason Kidd, the Program Director at WPGC 95.5 in Washington, D.C. (a Radio.com station), told us that his station has received the edited version of the song already.

Until now, Kanye had been taking the unconventional route to promoting his latest album, which included a worldwide art project and a viral video parodying American Psycho that featured his girlfriend, Kim's Keeping Up With The Kardashian mainstays Scott Disick and Jonathan Cheban. more on this story
