Late Monday afternoon (July 8th) the much-anticipated music video for Kanye West’s “Black Skinhead” surfaced on the internet. The clip featured similar imagery to Kanye’s SNL performances and an animated version of the man himself. If you had a chance to peep the video and it seemed a bit off, it’s because it was; the video we saw was unfinished.
Mr. West took to his favorite form of social media, Twitter, to air out the situation.
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. And to who ever leaked the video… FUK YOU!
The full screen-cap below.
How do you think Kanye handled the situation? Do you feel he went about it in the right way, or no? Sound off in the comments!
