Kanye West Says the “Black Skinhead” Video That Leaked Was Unofficial, and He’s Not Happy

Yesterday, an animated video for Kanye West‘s “Black Skinhead” popped up and made the rounds on the internet. It looked like it was hosted on a site that was possibly a private offshoot of kanyewest.com, but once the link started spreading, it spread fast, then people started ripping the visuals and hosting them, and the label scrambled to have everything taken down. Today, Kanye has confirmed via Twitter that the video was not official, and that the official version is on the way. Read his tweets above.

    What even was that animated video then? Concert visuals?

    I think it was the video, I think it was just placed there, possibly in rough form, as a placeholder until they decided to go live with it.

    I agree it definitely was the visuals. An early cut. The final outcome might look different but I expect it to be very similar aesthetically.
