Kanye West's Black Skinhead video, the first visual from his acclaimed Yeezus album, popped up online Monday and, like most events in the rapper's universe, it was quickly followed by controversy.
The clip, depicting CGI animation of the shirtless West in a mask, was an incomplete, leaked version, the rapper revealed in several tweets today.
Famous for explosive Twitter rants, West fired off missives that were unusually restrained compared to past eruptions.
"The BLKKK SKKKN HD video that leaked yesterday was not the official version," West tweeted.
"Me and Nick Knight have been working on this video for 5 months and for creative it's heartbreaking when something like this happens."
"So any websites that may have the unapproved / unfinished ruff. I ask you to please take it down," West wrote.
"Allow me and Nick to give the world what we've been losing sleep over," he said.
Not every dispatch was polite. He closed by hurling the F-bomb at the culprit responsible for leaking the video.
The official version will be released next week, he said.
