Kanye West has launched a foul-mouthed tirade over his leaked 'Black Skinhead' music video.

The 36-year-old rapper raged on Twitter after a black and white video featuring a topless CGI image of the rapper dancing in the dark was leaked online ahead of its premiere.

The 'Power' rapper fumed on the social networking site writing ''F**K you!'' amongst a series of tweets.

He wrote: ''The BLKKK SKKKN HD video that leaked yesterday was not the official version. Me and Nick Knight have been working on this video for 5 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. (sic)''

He concluded: ''And to who ever leaked the video... F*K YOU! (sic)''

The track is to be the first full release from Kanye's 'Yeezus' album which was released in June with deliberate lack of promotion.

Kanye instead debuted lead single 'New Slaves' via visual projections onto city buildings around the world.
