Kanye West Heartbroken Over ‘Black Skinhead’ Video Leak

Kanye West

Kanye West is not happy after an unfinished version of his “Black Slaves” music video leaked online yesterday. The rapper took to Twitter to vent his frustrations.

In the computer-animated clip, directed by Nick Knight, a shirtless Kanye runs across the screen. The rough video originated from a Universal Music Group development page that has since been password protected.

“The BLKKK SKKKN HD video that leaked yesterday was not the official version,” tweeted ‘Ye of the Yeezus cut. “Me and Nick Knight have been working on this video for 5 months and for creatives it’s heartbreaking when something like this happens.”

He plans to release the official version next week. “The final version will be ready within the next week,” he said.

In the meantime, he asks websites to remove the leaked version. “So any website that may have the unapproved / unfinished ruff. I ask you to please take it down,” he said. “Allow me and Nick to give the world what we’ve been losing sleep over.”

He also had some strong words for the person who leaked it. “And to who ever leaked the video… FUK YOU!”

    I can write for you.
    When was “Black Slave” released by Kanye West?
    Is that song unreleased? That would make some sense…

    Does the writer read his writing to himself? Is there an Editor for this site? I’m not going to go find out because I think if you are allowed to make up shit, put it on the internet and call it your “content,” I need to get on my grind because this is some B.S.

    @Hector, thats your opinion. many think it broke the mold and was the most artistic album released in years. sorry it wasnt trinidad james and you cant twerk to it in the club. this is why kanye has 21 grammys.

    @dee, it sucked. Just because something “breaks a mold” doesn’t make it good. People new to stop confusing different with good. The album was wack.

    He is so lying. I don’t respect this dude. It was official but he saw that the Video was getting very bad reviews and after 2h they took the video down, aha bye

    @Brian, You honestly think kanye gives a f*ck about reviews?

    Brian Reply:

    @joe, Sure he does if you think he doesn’t then you’re really blind. He also said he doesn’t care about album sales, this is a lie every artists cares. But he proofed it with the video, because he had very bad reviews and now he comes with the easiest way and says “leak” because people like you believe it.

    @Brian, BS.

    I have yet to see a bad review of the video. Almost all the videographers Ive talked to said it was impressive and artistic.

    @YMCMINAJ, so you call videographers anytime a new video comes out? lol

  5. Correction

    It should be “New Slaves” and not “Black Slaves”

    I think once an artist gets to a certain point they’re reaching to be different/creative. I can see that Kanye shot for the stars, but he lacks connection to the people. He’s a piece of work full of new ish, but the only person who can relate is Kanye. Arrogant Artistry should be the name of this album.
