Kanye West Has Angry Response To Black Skinhead Video Leak

(Radio.com) After Kanye West's Yeezus album leaked online five days before its official release date, a CGI video for first single "Black Skinhead" seemed to suffer the same fate Sunday evening (July 7) before being yanked as suddenly as it appeared.

The video seemed to have been made public mistakenly while on a Universal Music Group staging site, which has become password-protected. But it did give bootleggers a chance to grab the NSFW clip, which has since been removed at the request of the RIAA.

Kanye West has taken to Twitter to respond to the video leak, insisting that it's an unfinished version. He also had a direct message to the person(s) responsible for revealing the new clip ahead of schedule. West's statement in its entirety:

"The ['Black Skinhead'] video that leaked yesterday was not the official version. Me and Nick Knight have been working on this video for five months and for creatives it's heartbreaking when something like this happens.

"The final version will be ready within the next week. So any website that may have the unapproved / unfinished ruff. I ask you to please take it down. Allow me and Nick to give the world what we've been losing sleep over. And to who ever leaked the video… F*** YOU!" More details about the leaked video.
