Kanye West's Incomplete 'Skinhead' Video Leaks Online
The rapper says the reveal was "heartbreaking" on Twitter, but the final version will debut next week.
Kanye West took to Twitter today to address the leaked music video for "Black Skinhead" that has been making the rounds on the web. According to Kanye, the video, which features a CGI Kanye coupled with some horror-film imagery, was an unfinished version of the video. Kanye tweeted that the "final version will be ready within the next week."
The video's credentials were shady from the get go, as many surmised it was an accidental leak when it landed Monday, through a Universal Music staging site. Watch it here. It was never included on West's official Vevo page.
"Black Skinhead" is the first single from Kanye's latest album "Yeezus," which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
