Kanye West is very disappointed with the Internet world right now. The reason for his unhappiness is that his music video was leaked on Monday. West can’t seem to catch a break recently, and he is really unhappy that it was leaked ahead of time. Even though it was only a sneak peak, Kanye didn’t appreciate it at all. The video is the first visual of his new song Black Skinhead. It’s a dark and serious video, featuring Kanye as a very muscular version of himself. During the video, West changes into a demon, thanks to CGI effects. Apart from that, he also shows his crown jewels in the video.
The Dobermans also make an appearance in the video, as well as some KKK references. In addition; the clip showed some full frontal nudity. Most people believe that the crown jewels have been altered just like the muscles and the demon morphing. The real reason why Kanye is upset, is because, according to him; this wasn’t the official version. He tweeted on Tuesday afternoon: “Me and Nick Knight have been working on this video for 5 months and for creative it’s heartbreaking when something like this happens,” he continued with: “Allow me and Nick to give the world what we’ve been losing sleep over.” It’s not clear if Kanye has second thoughts about showing the world his crown jewels. One thing is clear he is definitely not happy that any of it was shown ahead of time.
The final version will be ready within the next week, Kanye promised. He also asked the webpages who feature the rough version, to take it down. Of course, there was no love lost between the person who leaked the video, and Kanye. He had some typical choice words for that particular individual.
Most of his fans think that he is overreacting, and believe that the real version will be even better than the leaked one. Their hopes are high, and they are patiently waiting for the true Kanye genius to be shown. What do you think? Do you think he went a bit overboard? Or do you think he has good reason to be upset? None of us would want to see our creative baby being shown to the world, before it’s actually ready. On the other hand; it’s also a way for West to gauge the interest of his fans and the reaction that most had to the clip. There is still time for Kanye and his crew to make the video even better, and shape it in the way they see fit.
On a positive note, West will be working together with Jay-Z again. Watch The Throne 2 will be their new collaboration. They decided not to feature each other on their own albums, but were saving their collaborative genius to star on the new Watch The Throne album. Hopefully for them any video that will be made for this album won’t be leaked ahead of time, and cause them both to be unhappy about that. Also we probably won’t see either man’s crown jewels featured.
