After dropping Yeezus without an official radio single or standard promo, we get the first visual companion in the form of a video for “Black Skinhead.”
It first popped up on his website on Monday evening (July 8), but was pulled pretty quickly. Ye explained on Twitter on Tuesday (July 9) that it “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,” he wrote (@KanyeWest). “The final version will be ready within the next week. And to who ever leaked the video… FUK YOU!”
Nevertheless, here it is. It’s entirely computer generated and predominately features an animated West following a brief introduction reminiscent of the backdrop from the track’s Saturday Night Live debut.
