Kanye's West 'Black Skinhead' video appeared online on Monday night (July 8, 2013) with several websites snaffling it up and flinging it on YouTube. The problem was, Kanye had no knowledge of the release and it soon became apparent that the clip was still unfinished and posted prematurely.

The animated video featured faces in black hoods and a CGI version of Kanye appearing alongside barking dogs and zombies, and although it looked pretty impressive, Kanye appeared distraught at the leak.

"The BLKKK SKKKN HD video that leaked yesterday was not the official version," he tweeted, adding, "Me and Nick Knight (Lady Gaga's Born This Way director) have been working on this video for 5 months and for creatives it's heartbreaking when something like this happens."

In a flurry of tweets, the Yeezus rapper appealed for websites to take down the clip until the finished version is complete this week, "So any website that may have the unapproved / unfinished ruff. I ask you to please take it down," he said, before signing off, "And to who ever leaked the video.F*K YOU!" 

Kanye West's Yeezus received a slew of hugely positive reviews upon its release last month, though our very own Joe Wilde was a little more cautious in his praise.
